Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse was built in 1858. The beacon shines a red beam, flashing every 5 seconds. Height above water is 67 feet with a range of 19nm.

The lighthouse is presently a Coast Guard family residence. It is easily accessbile by car but much more impressive when viewed from the water. Although a person can walk on either side of the lighthouse area, the walkpath trails which lead down to large granite boulders at the shore, are VERY STEEP.

***Directions: Follow RT 3 from Ellsworth to ME 198; turn south onto ME 102 and continue through Bass Harbor to the Coast Guard Bass Harbor Head Station entrance.
