This hike explores a former coastal granite quarry operation at a superlatively scenic preserve on the Massachusetts coast. Walk to a converted World War II observation tower, affording incredible views of the quarry below and the expanse of the Atlantic Ocean beyond, clear to Maine. From there, circle the quarry, exploring the workings of the operation. Detour to an elevated panorama from Halibut Point and then drop to explore the rocky seacoast. From there hike more of the quarry and the rugged shore before returning to the trailhead.
