Owner description: Short walking trail leading to a scenic and rugged rock.
Reviewed 9 March 2018

You can only view the lighthouse from a distance as it is on private property. The walk on the footpath and stairs to the rocky shore lead to beautiful views of Penobscot Bay. It's not a difficult walk for the average person, although we did encounter an older person that couldn't make it all the way. I would recommend a walk around the very pleasant town of Castine too.

We were touring the coastal towns of Maine and were interested in seeing some of the lighthouses along the way. It happened to be pouring rain the day we visited Castine but we drove down to the tip of the peninsula to get a look at this lighthouse. The keepers cottage is now a private residence and they have kept it and the light tower in beautiful condition. Unfortunately it is private property so we had to view it from a distance. Dice Head made the 7th lighthouse we visited on this trip and all were exceptional and in great condition. Well done Maine!

We've read The Fort by Bernard Cornwell several times so this was a must see. Quite steep--which we knew from the accounts--and amazing view at the base.

If you like to visit lighthouses like we do, this is worth the trip just to wonder up the path for the view. Not much to see at the lighthouse itself - but Castine is a pretty little village worth visiting. Be aware that the home next to the lighthouse is private property.

Any trip to Maine needs to include lighthouses. Beautiful location with easy access to the well maintained path. Lighthouse itself is privately owned but you can walk around.
