The Ham's Bay Lighthouse Hike is about 1 hour round trip. Difficulty:
3. A good uphill climb in places. Trailhead: At St. Croix 's northwest tip. Follow
Route 63 until the hard surface ends at concrete pillars marking the
Scenic Road West, a dirt road.
To reach the lighthouse, take the paved road uphill until you
reach a fence. Stay on the outside of it until you can cross a footbridge
and begin the steep walk to the lighthouse. The coastal view is worth
the effort. The big tidal pool down below is called Maroon Hole. You
might want to visit the beach after you descend since the shelling
can be interesting.
