An easy hike to the end of the beach brings you to one of the first lighthouses built on the west coast.
It must be approaching low tide to complete this hike!
This hike begins at the Jalama Beach Campground. Head out to the beach a couple hours before low tide and follow it until you can start walking up an old dirt road. After climbing the small hill, you will find a paved path that leads to above the lighthouse. Follow the steep staircase down and explore around the old historic lighthouse, but be sure to head back with enough low tide left to have a beach to hike on.
- No Permit, but you have to pay for parking at the Jalama Beach Campground
- Tide chart
