Enjoy a winter view of Hatteras Island from the top of the light tower! The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse will be open to the public for a free Winter Climb on Saturday December 8, 2018 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. Volunteers from the Outer Banks Lighthouse Society and Cape Hatteras National Seashore park rangers look forward to greeting local residents and visitors at the lighthouse. Children who wish to climb the lighthouse must be at least 42” tall, and children under 12 years of age must be escorted by a person at least 16 years old. Climbing the lighthouse is strenuous and is equivalent to climbing a 12-story building. For more information on what to expect, check the park website.
