Well run by volunteers. Very knowledgable and informative. Safety is a priority especially foot wear. No flip flops. No fee but donations accepted. All money goes to restoration of lighthouse. Very enjoyable trip.

Stopped on a walk and could view this in Biddeford ,ME. So Pretty. Went to a sanctuary and you had some nice trails all along the water and a great view of the light house.
