    Went there with my kids over the 4th holiday. The wind was tearing, it was cold, but by golly we did it.

    For accuracy...we didn't climb the rock. We climbed the trail on the coastline, to the viewpoint at Ecola Park. I'm all for hiking, but not risking my life.

    Fascinating history for this particular lighthouse (which no longer serves):
    Tillamook Rock Lighthouse, Oregon at Lighthousefriends.com

    And Ecola State Park:

    Lots of really cool light houses along the coast here. Some of which you can visit.

    All of them, I do believe. I think Tilly is the only one you can't actually access or at least get very close to.

    I've got my handy dandy guide here.....you have to take a tiny boat trip (my guide says .2 miles) to get to Warrior Rock on Sauvie Island.
