This is a very beautiful state park at the end of land in Gloucester. A historical interpretive trail around the Halibut State Park and Babson Farm Quarry. This guide will take you through the woods to a 60 foot deep water-filled quarry and then to the ocean to relax by the sounds of crashing waves.

I have been here a few times. Nice place to have a picnic. Love the quarry and walking out to the rocks. Atlantic Ocean view is awesome. Sitting on the rocks and looking out to the quarry is peaceful. There is a nice easy loop hike around the quarry the dips down in to a few different trails along the way.

I grew up near Rockport, and it's one of my favorite places in the country. The artists, tourist kitsch and maritime culture of one of the neatest fishing towns in New England easily make up for the crowds present most of the year. The Motif is one of the most painted buildings in the world. The park is a nice break from the crowds, and is an easy hike.
