Beautiful land and view of the ocean and the harbor. But you have to belong to the park association which is like $50 to enjoy going to it, so not inexpensive. So, I rarely go. Most of the time I kayak to it and am just on the edge.

A real treasure. Beautiful walking park with tremendous seaside views. The walkways are large enough so that you wander through forests and meadows as well. A little hilly but doable by anyone of every age. You can spend as much time as you like... 1/2 hour if you'd like to keep it short or several hours if you're in a... More

This is a great gem hidden in Hingham that offers a secluded place to walk, run, or simply relax and admire the Boston or Hull skyline. It is hilly in places, but the views are worth it! Lots of shaded areas....a perfect morning out for a 3 or 4 mile loop.

I went to this trail keeping in mind it would be a shorter one. But, its not it takes 2 hours to finish the entire area. This trail is good for kids and families. This trail is good for mountain bike's, as the trail has gravels and bumps. Overall, wonderful experience, would visit again.

One of the most beautiful locations for a walk in the state. Views of Hingham Bay and as far as the Boston skyline . Trails lead to wonderful harbor overlooks. Bring your camera.

The trails are nicely laid out and you can stroll or walk as fast as you like. Benches placed here and there for a rest. A $6 pp charge to use the property might be a bit much (it is free for members but I don't know how much membership is) though for a rather average hike.

I took my parents here when they were up visiting Boston. We spent just under two hours walking along the different paths on the reserve, totalling about 3.5 miles in total--and there were still plenty of paths to explore. We saw a good variety of birds: robins, plenty of red-winged blackbirds, a swallow, a woodpecker, a red-tailed hawk, a bluejay,... More

Pay your $6 park fee, get a pass from the library or join Trustees of the Reservations and prepare for a great day. The paths are wide and varied and the views fabulous. You travel over an estuary, up a hill or two, out on a peninsula and get views of Boston Harbor, meadows and forest. Weekdays are calmer, but... More

We have taken our boat here several times. It is so beautiful and calm. You can grab a mooring ball or raft off to other boats. You can take your raft into shore to a walking trails on one side and then into restaurants on the other side. A great place to spend a Sunday afternoon.
