It's a hike to get there but views are awesome. Lighthouse and keepers building is also worth the walk.

I have always wanted to climb up to the top of a lighthouse, and Big Sable Point filled this desire and them some. Stunning views... well worth the climb. You have to hike about an hour to get there, but again, it's totally worth it!

Beautiful walk to the lighthouse. The sun can get hot so wear layers. Amazing view worth the trip up the tower
