When you  go wear a pair of comfortable shoes and just a little bit on nerve. the trip up the 217-step winding staircase of "Old barney" is worth the 10-15 minute climb. the view from the top is spectacular, with breathtaking Island beach state Park to the north, the 18 miles of Long beach Island to the south and a bird's-eye view of Barnegat Inlet from every angle! this handsome 165-foot red and white tower, which was used as a lookout during WW I, was restored to its original splendor in 1988 and remains a symbol of the state's proud maritime heritage. The original 40-foot lighthouse was built in 1835 to mark a hazardous shoal as well as the fortieth parallel. a point crucial to transatlantic navigation. Its beehive-shaped Fresnel lens can be viewed at the nearby Barnegat Lighthouse Museum. six feet in diameter. the 12-foot-high lens is formed from 1,024 separate prisms mounted in bronze fittings. Listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places.
