See inside the Point Reyes Lighthouse and discover its history and function with a park ranger. Access requires a strenuous descent and ascent of 313 stairs. The stairs close when weather and winds are hazardous, i.e., if the winds are in excess of 40 mph (64 kmph). The clockwork room (the second-level chamber)—which houses the original clockworks and from which one can get a close look at the first-order Fresnel lens—is open with a ranger present from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and federal holidays that fall on Mondays.
