Enjoy the Beauty of Nature at Rocky Neck State Park



Rocky Neck State Park offers a wide variety of activities. Whether you are an adventurer or more laid back, you will have a fabulous day. Are you looking to get moving? The park features several hiking trails. Venture through dense forests and marshes as you head to the lovely lookout point called “Tony’s Nose”. If you like geology, make sure you take the red trail! This route leads hikers to an impressive boulder perched on top of a rocky foundation. It’s more than 20,000 years old!



After all that effort, you can make your way back to the beach and lay down in the sand. (Don’t forget to bring a towel!) Unwind to the sound of waves crashing and feel the gentle sun on your face. You can walk barefoot along the water or have a picnic with your loved ones! There are a few tables available if you wish to sit down. Take a good book with you and get lost in this New England oasis.
