Take Route 16 to Canso, and then turn right onto Union Street and drive 1.2 km (0.8 miles). The front range light is located down near the shore and is difficult to see from a public road. It is possible to walk the beach from a campground northwest of the tower to get a view. Canso Islands National Historic Site runs a boat out to Grassy Island for tourists, and a good view of the front range light should be possible during the voyage.
The lighthouse is owned by the Canadian Coast Guard. Grounds/tower closed.
I had not heard of Canso Islands National Historic Site until I arrived in Canso. The remnants of a hurricane were drenching the area during my visit, which forced the cancellation of a boat ride and gave me some extra time in Canso. It was fun to stop by the visitor centre and learn the history of Canso Island and its connection to Louisbourg.
