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

I cannot say enough good things about Worlds End. If you haven't been - you are missing a real treat! It is very close to the center of Hingham but it feels like you are miles away. There is a small charge to park but you can walk for miles and bring a picnic. We have been there several times.... More

Terrific view of Boston, the harbor around this historic point of land. Great laid-back feel, undiscovered by most hikers.

I expected lots of beautiful scenes (as displayed on the attraction's brochure) but there were quite few of them.

For a nice, short walk that brings you away from the city, the World's End is highly recommended. It is just a short drive (15-25 minutes, depending on traffic) south of Boston in Hingham. This coastscape has stunning views of the Boston city skyline as well as Hingham Harbour and Hull. It has lovely landscapes with rolling hills to rocky... More

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
