The state of New York maintains a wonderful scenic by-way called the Seaway Trail. Along this roadway are many lighthouses, all described in a pamphlet called Seaway Trail Lighthouses, which is available from Seaway Trail, Inc., Madison Barracks, 109 Barracks Dr., Sackets Harbor, NY 13685.
Starting to the north of the Niagra Falls area, the first lighthouse along the shores of Lake Ontario is Old Fort Niagara. This light sits on a bluff overlooking the Niagara River, near the fort. Traveling east about 30 miles we pass Thirty Mile Point Light, and then the beautifully restored Charlotte-Genesee Light near Rochester, NY.
East of Rochester we pick up the Seaway Trail along the shore once again, stopping at Old Sodus Light, and then at the Oswego West Pier Light in the town of Oswego. Turning north along Lake Ontario's eastern shore, we stop at Selkirk Light in the town of Port Ontario. There are several offshore lights along Ontario's eastern shore that I was unable to photograph, including Stony Pt., Horse Island, and Galoo Island. Finally, at the entrance to the St. Lawrence River sits the picturesque Tibbets Point Light.
Continuing on up the St. Lawrence River, we visit Rock Island Light, and Sunken Rock Light.
