Monhegan Island Light
Monhegan Island Light sits atop Monhegan Island, which is located about 10 miles off the coast of Maine. From the hilltop you can see a beautiful view of the town, and Manana Island, which protects the harbor.
At just shy of a square mile, the island sports 12 miles worth of trails. From stunning cliff views, through beautiful woodlands, to even an old shipwreck, it’s an incredible place to hike. I highly suggest spending the night on Monhegan so you have time to explore its beauty. If you do go out for the day, I suggest heading out of New Harbor as it gives you more time on the island. My parents started going to Maine when I was just shy of a year old. I still love going there.
