When gold was discovered in California, lighthouse stations were designed to lead prospectors into San Francisco Bay. The third lighthouse and the first on the north coast of the Golden Gate was moved in 1877 to a lower elevation nearby. Today the Point Bonita Lighthouse is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, the largest urban national park in the country. It's still an active lighthouse maintained by the Coast Guard; the National Park Service provides access to visitors.
