Saugerties Lighthouse

A landmark beacon on the Hudson River, the Saugerties Lighthouse is a venerable red-brick lighthouse built in 1869 at the mouth of the Esopus Creek. The Saugerties Lighthouse Conservancy maintains the lighthouse and adjacent lands.

The operational light-tower offers a panoramic view of the Hudson River with the Catskill Mountains to the west and Magdalen and Cruger Islands to the south.

Experience a bygone era. Enjoy river scenery and bird-watching. The Lighthouse can be reached via the half mile nature trail at the end of Lighthouse Drive in the village of Saugerties, New York.
