- The half-mile trail to the lighthouse is steep and uneven, with loose gravel. Wheelchairs are not advised (assistance may be needed in descending and climbing).
- Stay on the established trail. Observe warning signs and railings—these exist for your safety. Cliffs along the point can be unstable and hazardous.
- Dress in layers and be prepared for varying weather conditions. Sunny days along the coast can turn windy, foggy, and cold very fast.
- Please be mindful of poison oak along trails. Even a slight brush of the plant’s oils can cause a serious reaction. Staying on trails and learning to identify poison oak with its three leaves will decrease your chances of contact.
There is trailhead parking at Point Bonita including ADA accessible spots.
An accessible restroom can be found at the Point Bonita parking area. There are no restrooms at the Point Bonita Lighthouse.
Please remain on the established trail. Off-trail travel harms plants and causes erosion. Keep your food within arm's reach at all timesand do not feed the wildlife. Carry out all trash and food waste (fruit peels, shells, etc.).
