>"44 miles to the lighthouse:"
The last road is usually known as 'Windy Point' road.
Take the 'Lighthouse road' to the Mattole Beach Campground.
Couple hundred yards east of the campground, take the
road heading (south) up the bluff. On a nice day, there are lots of
'camera views' from the road.
Continue up the road to a fork. Right hand fork (dual rut) leads
down through a gate (open in summer). It goes down to
a cabin (sheepherders cabin) on the beach.
Punta Gorda light is a very short walk south from the cabin.
On a nice day... awesome place.
The Windy Point main road goes up a bit further to private property.
