The parking lot is 10 minutes outside of Saugerties and it is a 15 minute walk along a fairly wild pathway that skirts the water's edge. You are reminded that the path will be covered by water at high tide but a helpful clock at...More

My friend and I were excited to visit a lighthouse. We parked at the beginning of the trail and saw the sign that it was a half mile walk to the structure. The trail winds thru a wooded peninsula with local plants and interesting trees....More

Enjoyed the short walk over boardwalks and sandy paths, through reeds eventually getting the site of the lighthouse at the end of a promentary into the Hudson River. Well worth the visit and places to sit and enjoy the river, but check the tides before...More

The Saugerties Lighthouse is a gem. You have to walk through a wooded area, some parts on a wooden path and along the shores of the Hudson River. A lovely, easy walk. When you get to the lighthouse the views are spectacular. The lighthouse is...More

Saugerties lighthouse is right on the Hudson. It's a short walk from the parking area and you can't see it until you're nearly there. Built in 1869, the preservation society that maintains it operates it as a B&B. Worth a quick stop, especially if you...More

There’s no fee to walk to and see the lighthouse . It costs to stay in the lighthouse as a guest.

Parking about a half mile away from waterfront. Path to water is clearly marked and is marsh-like. You'll want to stay on the path. Wouldn't recommend for small children or if easy access is important.
