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.

This is a gorgeous park on the water that is maintained by the Trustees of the Reservation, one of Massachusetts' premier environmental organizations. You can wander its wide paths and enjoy amazing meadows and views of Boston Harbor year round. There are lots of place to picnic. There is a nominal charge -- I think it is $5 per car... More

We walk the paths in all seasons and love this part of our world! Whether you need peace and quiet by yourself, want to walk the dog in a friendly area with others or a romantic stroll through the woods and around the shore, this treasure is just that. All year long.

By far the best place in Hingham. Worlds end is a great place for a hike. Plenty more of space in the park and has a great view of the boston harbor islands

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
