Although one might expect that the lighthouse itself would not be handicapped accessible - after all the design of the thing means that there will usually be many steps to get to the top. Even the Sullivan's Island lighthouse which is the only one with an elevator has an additional 25 foot ladder to be scaled to get to the lantern room.
But the path to this lighthouse is particularly difficult to negotiate if you have trouble walking. It is deep gravel. You could not use a scooter or wheelchair, and even walking was difficult for me. I had to stop and rest several times.
These photos are the ones I took while I stopped to rest. I got up to the cleared area around the lighthouse, and sat down to catch my breath.
