I am fortunate to live in the neighborhood near Spring Point Light. The plateau overlooking the ledge and lighthouse provides one of the most magical harbor and ocean views anywhere. And walking across the ledge to the lighthouse is always inspiring. Just watch your step. The nearby gift shop is well run and sells great gifts, many that are Maine-made,... More

We stopped here because we saw it on the map. It was nice. Not many amenities close by. Parking is somewhat limited. If you are looking for a place to be contemplative this is a good spot. Good views around and sounds will get you in the mood. A little treacherous walking out to the actual lighthouse.

Our first trip to see a lighthouse and we loved it. Rocks to the lighthouse were a little tricky. You have to watch your steps or you could fall in the bay. Not handicap or wheelchair accessible.

It was so cool to see this lighthouse as the fog was rolling in. You can walk out to it along a 950ft breakwater. Definitely not an easy trek! It's open on weekends during the summer and you are allowed to go inside. We happened to be there in September but it was still a sight to see!

The Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse was a very memorable visit because we literally could not see it from the shore. As the others mentioned you have to navigate your way to the lighthouse over a pathway of large rocks. The gaps and uneven surfaces mean that you have to choose your path carefully. This is not for anyone with disabilities... More

This is NOT a handicap friendly lighthouse. You can see it from the shore, but if you want to walk out to it, you'll have to be fairly physically fit. I'm not kidding when I say that I felt like a kid again! There is a caution sign at the beginning....take it seriously. Don't try this with flip flops or... More

This lighthouse is small but good to see. It's right within the southern Maine community college campus. You can walk right up to it but watch your step. The walkway is simply placed rocks with some wide deep gaps

It is so beautiful, almost majestic! We have seen most of the light houses in Maine! This is one of the few we had not seen! It stands there at the end of the point, it stands so tall. Chalk up another beauty seen!

The Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse is so beautiful!!! Be careful on your walk toward it since the rocks are spaced a little apart. Other than that, enjoy the view!
