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.

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.
