Point Cabrillo Light Station Professional Reviews and Guides
"The Point Cabrillo Light Station was originally constructed after the great San Francisco earthquake of 1906, which created a huge demand for lumber to rebuild the city. The lighthouse guided ships along the rugged North Coast to and from tiny doghole ports, where the lumber was loaded onto schooners. A century later, the property had been transferred to California State Parks, and 11 of the original 15 buildings were eventually restored. Today, visitors may tour the lighthouse and some of the other buildings, as well as the picturesque grounds, all of which are part of the state historic park."
--Mike White, Top Trails Northern California’s Redwood Coast (Wilderness Press).
"It’s a treat to ﬁnd a short accessible hike that is so astoundingly picturesque. Point Cabrillo treats visitors to the romanticism of a restored light station surrounded by soul-stirring coastal views punctuated by craggy bluffs and aquamarine inlets."
--Linda and David Mullally, Coastal Trails of Northern California (Falcon Guides).
