The Battery Point Lighthouse Trail is a 0.4-mile out-and-back trail in Crescent City, California that features an operating lighthouse with residence still manning the lighthouse.

The trail is very short at roughly 0.2-miles each way and heads downhill from the parking lot, crosses the water channel, and leads up to the lighthouse.

While in the area, be sure to check out the Crescent City Coastal Trail, which can be found next to the parking lot for this hike.

Pets: Dogs and other animals are not allowed on Battery Point Island or the Lighthouse Park on the island; however, dogs are allowed on the mainland side of the trail.
