Hike was great but would recommend bringing lots of water and sunscreen. The quarry looks awesome but the best part is the rocky beach. Unfortunately the visitors center was closed at the time but would definitely go again. Ps. Beach is not for swimming, great...More

An old quarry on the edge of the ocean is now a lovely place to walk on the rocks. Bring a picnic and watch the sunset!

Super easy to get to, park, and gain access to the park. Small trails, some that are pretty overgrown, down to the sea rocks. Be prepared to go barefoot or wear good climbing shoes!

We had a wonderful time exploring here. The rocks at the quarry were amazing pieces of Mother Nature's sculptures. We got beautiful pictures of the sea as well as of the rock formations. Would not hesitate to go back many times!

Interesting walk in the park to learn about the historical granite trade in Rockport. Markers add to the interest (even though some are essentially place holders). It's worth it to take the path down to the ocean. A good way to spend an hour or...More

We had a great time! You have to time your access to the park because it fills up very fast. It was a warm day so it was nice to walk the shaded trails and then down to the ocean. There is no swimming in...More

Saw a blip in the paper regarding a free guided tour at the state park and decided to try it. It did cost $10.00 to park, as we are out of state people, but the free tour was well worth it. We have been coming...More

One of the most enjoyable walk you can take at any time of day. A full view of the New Hampshire and Maine coast line to the North and Eastern coast line. South towards Rockport and Gloucester. Great views of the Quarry and Atlantic Ocean.

I researched this park ahead of our trip and thought it might be a nice stop. I did not realize just how much my family and I would enjoy it. The trail was not difficult to walk, but it confused us when we came to...More

I use GPS or Google maps. As mentioned by another, parking is limited due to very small lot. Best go on a week day and even better in the off season!

Yes, the main trail around the quarry is quite smooth, so most larger jogging strollers (Jeep or Bob-types) would work fine. A smaller umbrella stroller wouldn't work so well. There are smaller side trails and trails that... More
