One crisp autumn day, we stopped at this park on a day-long loop tour of Cape Ann and the Gloucester area. We parked in a spacious lot and paid a fee of $2. An old World War II fire control tower served as the park's Visitors Center. Inside were informative exhibits of the park's natural and cultural history. Granite was quarried from this area for nearly 90 years. One of the quarries has become a rather scenic pond. Wonderful broad trails led around it and off toward the wave-wracked shore. At one trail’s end, we could see as far away as Mount Agamenticus and the Isles of Shoals in Maine. The setting was beautiful and serene. Be sure to bring a camera! We liked everything about our brief visit here.
