Halibut Point State Park

Gott Ave.

(978) 546-2997

Halibut Point State Park, accessed by a poorly marked sign on the right, off Rte. 127; it's 1.5 miles north of the Yankee Clipper Inn. There's ample parking for a $2 fee. Follow the signs to the visitors' center, where you can pick up free park maps, and find the entrance to a few short walking trails. If you stay right at the trailhead and follow the dirt Woodchip Path for about 20 minutes down to the ocean's rocky shoreline, you'll be treated to the sight of a seemingly endless number of gigantic granite boulders. Take a seat and be hypnotized by the waves crashing in.
