Excellent place to walk or take a dog walking. You can circle the Island, so it is impossible to get lost! Surrounded by water every view is beautiful

Just 17 miles south of Boston on Hingham harbor, you can enjoy a pleasant walk and take in some beautiful views. Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, this Trustees of Reservations property is pristine. A great place to enjoy with family or friends and of course your dog if you have one. There are plenty of benches spread throughout World's End... More

This is a beautiful area to get in touch with nature right in your own backyard. It's quiet and peaceful for walking, with a number of nice vistas for picnics, painting, or just to sit and relax. The scenery is varied, with both beaches and small forested sections, and the beauty changes with the seasons, as the year goes by.... More

World's End is a great place for a walk with fantastic scenery and views across the water to Boston and Hull. In the autumn the foliage is really beautiful and in the summer there is plenty of shade from the trees to enjoy a walk, even on the sunniest days! In the winter wrap up warm as the wind coming...

It is truly unbelievable that such a scenic piece of land has been left undeveloped for all of these years. So close to Boston and yet a world away with views of the Boston skyline from atop the hill. One of my favorite places to walk or snow shoe. Small fee, well worth it to preserve this treasure.

Worlds End is one of the nicest spots south of Boston to take a walk and enjoy the best of Nature. With views of bays, the ocean and the Boston skyline you can take a nice hike and get some outdoor activity just a few miles from several south shore towns.

Lovely place, but there are FREE locations that offer the same beauty -and then some - for FREE in this same area. The DCR (Commonwealth of MA Park and Rec) has MANY sites as does Audubon (free on Sundays since they don't staff their locations. Not worth the cost nor the travel distance when there are so many other locations... More

It is just funny that we live in the Boston area for the past 19 years and never heard of this beautiful park. It is a perfect place to walk, sit on one of many benches, relax, have lunch and enjoy spectacular views of Boston and the bay. Not a hiking trail, more of a beautiful and not too crowded... More
