Truly hidden behind several homes, this point was spectacular on a sunny October morning. Huge waves from a hurricane we’re crashing the granite rocks creating lots of spray and great photo opportunities. Restroom was clean. Hiking paths. An art symposium was being offered that day...More

This a fabulous place. Years ago I was able to take the trails out to the rocks by the ocean. This time I did not find that trail accessible to the walker now used. The self guided trail is accessible. There are moderate to mildly...More

Come here and watch the surf while sitting perched on giant granite rocks. This was once an active quarry. Now you can hike a short path around what's left of the quarry and out to the rocky shoreline. From there on a clear day you...More

If you find the time, go school lie this gem. The views are awesome and searching the tidal pools was fun. Just be careful and watch your footing.

We enjoyed the views and the charge is worth it if you are planning a day outing. If just going for the ocean views, there are many better places. Rockport seems to love their fee revenues so we did the drive and went back to...More

This is a great place to see the Ocean in its raw force. There are some nice walking trails that aren't to hard to navigate, you'll need to be a bit cautious with small children and pets around the quarry, there are no guard rails...More

We are so glad we decided to stop here while driving on scenic Route 127. The state park encompasses an old granite quarry and a long stretch of pristine oceanfront. Trails are wide and flat. You can do a leisurely loop with several stops in...More
