Beautiful unusual walk through a short span of wood into the view of a quarry, filled with sweet water and beyond the salt water of the ocean. The look out point has a plaque that gives orientation and names to the mountains and buildings of the further opposite shore in New Hapshire and Maine. Peaceful and relaxing strolling area.

This place is a family favorite for over 25 years. A must do! Great place for children to play in tidal pools and to jump from rock to rock. Beautiful sunsets. A place to get away from crowded beaches.

This area was really awesome to see. They really could use some better signage though. The quarry is pretty and peaceful. Past the quarry is the ocean. You can hear the sound of the ocean while sitting at the quarry.

Beautiful and clean park. However, there are no park employees and it was very easy to get lost with poor signage on some trails. My daughter and I explored most of the entire park alone, and got lost finding our way back. There was only one trail and one sign pointing back, however it led us to a dirt road... More

This place is one of the most amazing state parks I've visited. The views are spectacular and the granite beach is gorgeous. It gave this native San Diego girl a new perspective on beaches. It's a small hike to the ocean and I suggest wearing sneakers to climb the rocks, I wore flip flops and was fine but I moved... More

The park was a nice walk with really great views. There was an ocean overlook area, walk past an abandoned quarry.
