Bass Harbor Lighthouse:
Bass Harbor Head is another dramatically set lighthouse. Located in down east Maine on the southwest point of Mount Desert Island, Bass Harbor light looks like it was chiseled out of the rocky ledge it is perches on.
A footpath snakes down to sea level and offers dramatic views, but visitors are advised to use caution when clambering out on the rocks in search of the better photo or viewing point.
Built in 1858, Bass Harbor is one Maine's most often visited lighthouses, not only for the dramatic beauty of its location, but also because of its proximity to the popular Acadia National Park and the charismatic town of Bar Harbor.
