We parked below the bridge at Heceta Head and walked the 1/2 mile up to the lighthouse. It was a comfortably steep walk, but the views compensated for any difficulty one might have going up.

In the 1960's, the lighthouse became totally automated, which caused the lighthouse keepers not to be needed. In 2011, a restoration of the lighthouse turned it into a beautiful tour spot to be enjoyed by people like us. Thanks, Ginny, for the tour!
