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.

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.

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.
