This is a wonderful place to go and enjoy some nature area and view the lighthouse. The staff in the gift shop are very nice and accommodating. We spent a couple of hours enjoy enjoying the trails and the historical information.

Decided to stop by and visit this place before leaving town and glad I did. Good weather, great views, and lots of information for a minimal price. Worth a visit while you are in St. Augustine.

219 steps to the top of this lighthouse which is the first and oldest lighthouse in Florida. There are several exhibits on the grounds, including lighthouse keepers home and various other outbuildings. This is truly an amazing place to visit. We will be back.
