Love this place. Let's call the lover lane, great picnic area and nature walk. Awesome biking area if you don't mind lots of hills. Sea kayaking are the best see the view of Boston skyline.

Parking is ample. We paid $6 per person at the gate, which sits right before the parking lot. We thought the price was fair. This is a pretty easy hike. Some steeper hills at times, but tolerable for any age. Once you get a mile or so into the hike you have some beautiful views of the ocean and Boston... More

Finding it is a challenge, but once you find it, it is an enchanting walk about with water views, farm land, woods, rocks, and a transport to another dimension. Quiet rranquility in a heavenly place. Not a lot of parking, but go off peak time and you will get a spot. Costs $ but try a season's pass if you... More

My husband and I took a walk at World's End, which is a beautiful peninsula jutting out into the Weir River. If you like the Acadia carriage trails you'll like World's End, which has easy trails to hike on. There are pretty views of the Weir River and towards Hull and Hingham. It's a nice place for a picnic or... More

We lucked out! We went here on a Saturday around 4:30pm and got a parking spot. There were only a couple parking spots left and I think the guard turned some cars away after us. Beautiful place! We did not walk the entire loop because it was a 90 degree day and our dog was exhausted. There were benches scattered... More

I've been coming here since birth, and I never get tired of it. So much to see and explore. The beauty is unparalleled and every season there is something new to behold.

Hiked with an AMC group with a leader very knowledgeable about the property and a trustee member. The weather and sights were incredible- hard to best on the south shore- great ocean views, Boston skyline.

I live locally. Love coming here for long walks every time of year. Great views of the water and Boston skyline when the leaves are not on the trees. Falls is the best time here - so beautiful with all the foliage! On especially gorgeous days there can be too many cars for the parking lot, so you might have... More

Worlds End is one of the valuable Trustees of Reservations properties (we're family members for approx. $65 a year which keeps these properties going and available for all to enjoy). Big wide open fields, paths to get 'lost' on, beaches to skip stones on. It has it all!
