First Lighthouse Night Climb on Saturday

May 23, 2018

For people wanting a panoramic view of Long Beach Island, there's no better place than the top of Barnegat Lighthouse.

And on Saturday, May 26, the Friends of Barnegat Lighthouse State Park organization holds its first night climb of the season from 7 to 9 p.m. The event is free, but donations to the Friends are appreciated.

The Friends suggest participants arrive early. The night climb ends promptly at 9. The lighthouse is 172 feet high and contains 217 steps.

Other summer night climbs, all beginning at 7, are scheduled for June 23,  July 28 and Aug. 25.

For more information, call the park office at 609-494-2016 or log onto friendsof barnegatlighthouse.org. E.E.
