Check the tide charts and head out for an adventure! The short walk out to the lighthouse is well worth the effort. Great views and a bit of history! Pack a lunch and spend a few talking in the scenes of the Hudson River

It's been a few years since I took the walk down to the Saugerties Lighthouse and I was nicely surprised by some of the improvements made to the trail. In summer, you can't always see the Hudson River from the path, but that's OK. When...More

There is a short walk to the lighthouse (not strenuous), with great views of the Hudson River. The lighthouse is a b&b, so you cannot go in without advance arrangements. But the deck around it has tables and chairs, and stunning views of the river....More

We enjoyed our time here walking to the lighthouse and back and reading the signs/information about water levels during the recent storms.

We have been here in the summer so this was our first winter walk to the lighthouse. It was awesome. The water frozen in chunks adding to the scenery. Just love visiting here.

This lighthouse has a beautiful view of the Hudson River. About half mile walk from the parking lot--a nice hike with native vegetations.

We walked a snow-covered trail, over little bridges and through woodlands, in temperatures in the teens, to get to the lighthouse. We weren’t alone, and everyone we passed greeted us with hello or Happy New Year. The river was frozen around the lighthouse, but it...More

The Saugerties Lighthouse is positioned at the edge of the Hudson River and just about as near as you can get without stepping in. Park the car and walk through the woods to the Lighthouse. There are places to stop and have a picnic including...More

No cost but must be arranged in advance as it is a B&B in high demand. However you can park your car and walk out to the lighthouse on the trail through the estuary. You can enjoy the view and even swim in the shallows... More

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.
