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.

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.
