There are multiple trails to choose from and different routes that you can choose to go. We wondered around on most of them, going about 4.5 miles. There were some pretty views at the top and a beach that you can go down too. The tide was out when we went so we could go down and look in the... More

Great walking trails. Lots of dogs if that is your thing. Wonderful tree coverage to keep you cool during a hot daytime walk.

Beautiful , scenic spot. I gave a "very good" because parking is difficult and if you are not careful you can get a parking ticket. If you have a kayak, you could kayak in from Hingham Harbor where you can get free parking and a place to launch your kayak.

This is such a gem. This Olmsted Designed Park is lovely to walk in, gorgeous views, lovely trees to walk through so close to the harbor, a lovely place to paint for artists. I love the history, and how it was once considered for the United Nations - The Trustees of Reservation run it, and it is part of the... More

Balance between nature with privacy. Panoramic ocean views with tons of small shady hiding from sun spots to enjoy. Love World's End. Always have felt the name itself speaks for your experience.

Grab a basket, blanket and sandwiches and enjoy the view with your favorite person. You have the choice to see, the bay, trees and much more.

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.
