Halibut State Park is small, with limited parking for $5 per day, but well worth planning a visit to hike the beautiful granite ledges by the ocean. Try to arrive early or in the off season to get a parking spot. There is a granite quarry with a small building there to see as well. Lots of birds, seals and other wildlife as well.

We were lucky enough to have perfect fall weather for our hike through the Park to the rocky coastline. Don't miss the opportunity to enjoy the sea views and the scattered rocks and the gorgeous quarry!

very unique site - walking trails are very easy, the quarry is a great site, includes trails overlooking the ocean with stunning long-distance views, and trails down to the water - but, be careful along the rocks!

Fantastic park and must see views. $20 parking fee for out-of-staters is a little steep. Trails are for the sure-footed.

This is a great place to spend the day with your family or even just with your dog. Try catching it on a sunny day to really experience the views. Great views of the quarry from all around and breathtaking views of the ocean from up close and from great heights. When you go down to the ocean, you get to hear it roar with the large waves rolling in and crashing on the rocks. Easy hiking for all. Trails are smooth and pretty wide overall to ensure good social distancing. There are a couple of access points to hike down in the quarry which aren't extreme at all. Just require paying attention to your footing during the descent and ascent. Limited parking is an issue. It is only $5 but Halibut Point SP seems to fill very early on sunny days in spring, summer and fall. Sometimes you may get lucky and can catch it on reopening around 2:30/3 pm. There is no parking close anywhere outside of the state park.
