Went for the summer solstice celebration. It was a beautiful June day capped off with a red orange sunset over the Boston skyline. Walking back to the car, the lights of the carnival in Hull impressed the kids. fun music, little kids (under 10) running all over and making new friends, truly memorable. and the grounds are beautiful too- the...

It is a property owned by the Trustees of Reservations, which I didn't know since on the Boston Harbour Islands it doesn't mention it. For nonmembers it's a $5 entrance fee. Unfortuneatly my youngest was napping so we didn't stray far from the car which we parked just outside the entrance since we weren't going to go far at all.... More

We were looking for something to do on a beautiful afternoon and came upon this site while looking on trip advisor. It was truly a peaceful and beautiful walk through the woods and along the water, and the highest point had a great veiw of the Boston skyline. We saw deer on our walk and they seemed to not fear...

Out of the way, beautiful scenery of a countryside that reminds us of our pastrol beginnings and water views that display watercraft of many types. The paths are well maintained; benches offer a place to rest and the vistas welcome contemplation. Families, couples, individuals, and pets were out and about, but it was not crowed on a Sunday afternoon. A... More

Recently, we took a walk at this special place of protected land on the shores of Hingham. It is protected by the trustee of reservations. It is a beautiful piece of land that has excellent trails and views of the Hingham harbor and the Boston Sky line. If you have a dog, it s a great place for a walk.... More

This is a splendid place to walk on a hot summer day. You’ll be gifted with breezes fresh off of the harbor. The variety of trees bespeaks the miracle of creation. When we got there the catalpa trees were in bloom. There are few flowers more beautiful. The paths were initially designed by Frederick Law Olmstead. You get views of... More

I got up last Friday morning feeling totally drained and without any creative juice. I had nothing to offer or give the world. I knew I needed a break but where to go to get my mojo back? After reviewing some local spots, I came upon World's End in Hingham. About 50 minutes so it was well within driving distance... More

Not too easy to reach from metrowest, but worth the drive, and on a Friday morning until noon the entance fee was waived. As beautiful as everyone said, and dotted with benches and picnic tables. No mosquitoes due to the sea breeze. (though plenty of poison ivy on the mowed hay paths) We walked most of it in under 2... More

I brought my 7 year old granddaughter so we can play with our cameras. There are so many species of flowers, trees, birds, butterflies, animals, different waterways, meadows. We saw Great Egrets and a Doe getting their lunch. In 4 hours we only walked 1/2 of the trails. There is plenty of shade throughout with some open sun areas. You... More

It is a wonderful place. Very peaceful and restful to walk around and picnic. Our family relaxed and enjoyed the day as we trekked and rested for some packed lunch by the ocean. We had a wonderful picnic and had some quality family time together. We will certainly visit here again.
