It is small light house and you can only get in to tour Tuesday and Thursdays right now. The ride to see this was beautiful. Nice to see the history of this area.

Once you get a safe parking spot, it's a short walk up to the lighthouse. However, the gates were closed and the lighthouse wasn't open (something about reducing hours due to low funds). There's a plaque or 2 you can read, and then take a...More

Good place to look out over Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. Nice memorial across the street and vista. Lighthouse is a 125 hundred year old gem! Parking limited.

I live in Falmouth and remember driving by Nobska light as a child. My visit this month was to show our house guest the sights of Falmouth. Breathtaking views! Beautiful day to wander around the light and learn about the history.

While parking is limited, The lighthouse is beautiful. There is a great view of the ferries and sailboats as well. Definitely worth a stop!

Loved watching the sun before it set behind the trees. Please be careful here! So many people walking into traffic! This lighthouse is beautiful, and high on a curvy road as lighthouses are. I was shocked to see so many people standing in the road...More

I didn't notice the trolley. Most people ride their bikes up there. My husband and I walked there and back from the Woods Hole Inn. The weather was nice, so we made the most of it. You can drive to the lighthouse, but there... More
