Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Get a close-up view of the only lighthouse on Mount Desert Island, which continues to guide boaters safely into Bass Harbor with its red beacon. Stairs bring you down the steep bluff to an overlook providing views not only of Bass Harbor Head Light but also of Blue Hill Bay and Swans Island."
