We met up with some magnificent nature sites when walking from the parking lot to the Saugerties Lighthouse. The path through the beach sand and boardwalk boasts trees, bushes and flowers lining its sides and was a great introduction to the picturesque lighthouse we arrived at.
The lighthouse itself functions as a bed and breakfast. Only overnight guests are allowed access. There is a Museum room which showcases the history of the Lighthouse and the steamboat era of the Hudson River. Tours are offered on Sunday afternoons in the summertime. The tours are approximately 20-minutes long and include an overview of the history of the Lighthouse, perusal of the museum, and a view from the tower.
We did not get to enter the lighthouse since we visited on a weekday when there were guests staying in the Lighthouse, but we did get to enjoy the beautiful deck and the gorgeous views from the riverside deck.
