We enjoyed ocean view and watching fisherman retrieve their lobster traps. Cost was reasonable compared to other ocean parking in the area.

We drove up to Halibut Point and spent the afternoon doing a picnic at the park. Lots to explore and lots to see, get ready for a little walking!

My son and I visited this park during our getaway to Boston. The scenery is amazing, and it is very accessible. Highly recommend if you are visiting the Boston area and have time for a day-trip outside of the metro area.

I use GPS or Google maps. As mentioned by another, parking is limited due to very small lot. Best go on a week day and even better in the off season!

Yes, the main trail around the quarry is quite smooth, so most larger jogging strollers (Jeep or Bob-types) would work fine. A smaller umbrella stroller wouldn't work so well. There are smaller side trails and trails that... More
