This is one of our favorite places to go, well worth buying a membership with the Trustees. You can see the Olmsted hand in the design, with sweeping curves and strategically planted trees. Take a walk in the woods or along a pebbled beach; enjoy...More

We enjoyed peaceful walks in the woods at World's End. The views are spectacular,especially at sunset. We enjoyed watching the deer. It's the perfect place to relax.

I love to walk, jog, hike, snow shoe, x-country ski, alone or with friends and family. I often find a quiet place to sit and enjoy solitude and the natural beauty of an undeveloped but well maintained Reservation.

Here is a place in my old home town where development never reached. I used to walk the hills and trails of this untouched peninsula as a boy and had to return 60 years later to see if it had been spoiled. It hadn't. This...More

World's End State Park (1 Replies)
We are considering going to World's End State Park and I have a few questions. 1 - Are there easy to moderate hiking trails? 2 - How nice is the scenery? 3 - What hotels are in the area? 4 - We have been to Ricketts Glen State Park but am wondering if there are other nice attractions within 30 minutes of World's End State Park? Thanks in advance.
