I had photographed this lighthouse from York Redoubt, but thought it was worth getting up close to the tower. McNabs Island Ferry shuttled me to the eastern side of the island, and then I hiked to the western side of the island. It is a good idea to have a map of the island and to know that Lighthouse Road, the easiest way to access the lighthouse, has been washed out. To visit the lighthouse without getting wet, you need to go via Strawberry Battery and pass on the south side of Hangmans Marsh. Give yourself at least two hours on the island as a good portion of the hike is across a rocky beach that is tough on the ankles.
