Kids will enjoy this tour of the Halibut Point State Park and Quarry with a focus on its stone-cutting history!

The panorama encompasses views from Crane Beach in Ipswich to Mount Agamenticus in Maine and the Isles of Shoals off the coast of New Hampshire. This glorious natural landscape is breathtaking and inspiring.

Kayak to Choate: Island Tour and Picnic

Take a guided kayak paddle to Choate Island with the Trustees of Reservations!

Circumnavigating an island is one of the great rewards of kayaking. Reaching the summit of a hill that offers a great view is one of the payoffs of a good hike. This adventure in the Crane Wildlife Refuge offers an opportunity to do both of these things in one outing. We’ll paddle around three islands, the largest of which—Choate (formerly Hog) Island—supports myriad birds and mammals including deer, fisher, coyote, and otter. We’ll land there and enjoy a picnic lunch on the lawn of the Choate family homestead.
