Halibut Point State Park
Miles of easy walking paths wind around a water-filled abandoned quarry, over scrub-covered bluffs, and along rocky cliffs. Sweeping views over scenic glimpses as far away as Maine and a self-guided walking tour lets visitors experience the rich history of Rockport’s historic granite trade.
