Nantucket County Highpoint Trip Report

Sankaty Head Lighthouse

We took the Steamship Authority slow ferry, leaving at 9:15 AM. The ferry ride takes 2:15 to make the trip, and now costs $14 each way. We bought $2 bus tickets each way to get to Sankaty Lighthouse. Because of the late season (missed by one day) the bus only ran as far as Siasconset. I started to hike to the Lighthouse and was lucky to get a ride part of the way.

I totally agree with Dave that the knoll close to the lighthouse is the highest point.
