Craig A. Green provides the following: "The light may be viewed up close by either hiking/walking/biking around the perimeter trail from the Brockton Point Lighthouse (2.5 miles), or driving to the Point Prospect Overlook and hiking down to the trail. This hike is pretty strenuous with numerous steep switchbacks on dirt. It is well worth the hike as you can get great shots of the Lion's Gate Bridge from underneath."
