This was the first time we had visited this state park. We were looking to get a little exercise and see the ocean. A perfect spot for this. You do have to pay $10 to be able to park here. More, I believe, if you...More

Halibut Point State Park is great for a quick hike on a beautiful day. The parking is really easy - you can pay with card - and there is plenty of it. The walk itself isn't very long, but there are many spots to stop...More

This park is well worth a visit. It’s $10 to park your car. The old granite quarry is fascinating and the walks around it encompass a rugged beach and woodland.

I suggest reading up on the park before going. It was a quarry and there are different items still around that were made from the stone. The quarry is now filled with water and it is right on the ocean. There is also a light...More

Extremely interesting state park. Excellent outdoor signage explaining the history of the granite mining industry. A very short walk, flat ground, easy walking.

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!
