We visited in mid-week in late October with perfect weather and no crowds for the walk around the quarry lake and a couple of the paths. All paths are well maintained and easy to meander. Beautiful views almost anywhere you choose to look. The park...More

This State Park is incredible. The size of the boulders along the shoreline is awesome. Just a picture postcard of the the seacoast of New England looks like. Can't miss!

This state park has a lot to offer. It's a flat, easy walk to a huge old quarry that is truly awesome to see. Continue on to a scenic overlook of Ipswich Bay all the way to the Isles of Shoals off the NH coast...More

I've never been to a park that had both a beautiful quarry and the ocean right there. The granite structures were pretty cool. No charge for parking in November.

We visited for the first time after many years of travel to cape anne. This is a beautiful park with gorgeous vistas and a pretty and easy to manage hiking trail around a quarry. Picnic area also.

Even on an overcast day, the rocks and waves were beautiful. We loved climbing all over the rocks. The kids really enjoyed seeing the small pools formed at low tide.

This place has great hiking trails that lead down to a stunning granite beach, very easy to walk on. Birders check it out. Great black-backed gulls, northern gannet, harlequin ducks, other alcids. Fantastic place to bird watch.

This is a fantastic place to visit and even if 10$ parking is exaggerated, dont let that stop you... Black flies attacked through legging so be careful especially near quarry and ponds. Spend about 1:30 hour round trip to go to the ocean view point.

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
