Scramble across ledges scarred for eons by wind and wave and examine tide pools teeming with marine life. Bird watchers get an eyeful from this low coastal shelf overlooking dramatic surf. The weather-beaten bluffs here make up a low rocky coastal shelf covered in bayberry, greenbriar, and shadbush. During storms, waves crash over the rocky shore. Tidal pools harbor snails, hermit crabs, and sea stars. Trails: 2.5 miles of trails. Moderate walking. The reservation is a link in Rockport's Atlantic Path. When to Visit: Year-round, daily, sunrise to sunset. Allow a minimum of 1 hour, 2 hours if visiting state park and its visitor center and museum.
