I visited at 5am on a mid-July weekend. I was hoping to catch sunrise but it was too cloudy. Trails are very well maintained. Scenic vista, old quarry, visitors center with a tower for more views.

Very lovely and well maintained walking trails wind around a century old quarry and onto the rocky beach. Easy to follow.

Absolutely spectacular is the granite ledge of the coast weathered from the climate and Atlantic. Bring shoes for jumping and climbing from rock to rock.

For $6 a carload it is hard to beat this park. Some easy trails to walk. The best lead you to the ocean - either an overlook or the rocks that let you walk to the waters edge. Fun making a rock stack and climbing around on the large rocks

I really love Halibut Point. I sometimes forget about it, then when I remember it, I make a point to make a trip out there. It is a great place to cool off on a hot summer day. Easy walking paths around the quarry plus all the rocks that lead down to the ocean. Dogs allowed on leash is also... More

Very pleasant , doable hike which rewards you with glorious vistas of the quarry on one side and the ocean on the other. Great place to walk, picnic, take photos and just while away an afternoon. Careful though - don't forget the sunscreen!

This was such a unique place and we loved our visit here. The quarry was large, cool and had interesting features from historical mining. The shore area featured tidepools that were fun to enjoy and explore. Unique land features made for a pleasant day of walking.
