Halibut Point is a uniquely beautiful coastal seascape. Looking seaward on a clear day, the view stretches from Crane Beach in Ipswich to Mount Agamenticus in Maine and the Isles of Shoals off the coast of New Hampshire. Formerly the Babson Farm granite quarry, the park is managed for scenic, historic and conservation purposes by the DCR and the Trustees of Reservations. An adjacent property, Sea Rocks, is owned by the Town of Rockport and open for public use. Here you can explore the park's trails and tidepools, picnic on its rocky ledges, enjoy its sweeping views, and learn about Cape Ann's historic granite industry.

Very unique property. The granite quarry is breathtaking. Gorgeous water color. The hike down to the rocky shores of the ocean is worth it. Dirt roads but still ok for strollers.

Great if you're looking for an easy hike. Easy to get to with a $5 parking pass for 24 hours. Views of the ocean from north shore Mass and you can even see parts of NH. It was cool chillin by the quarry too, great views all around and walk down to the ocean.

Great place for a family hike with the dog. Beautiful scenery.

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.
