Worlds End Reservation Trail

Worlds End Reservation Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Worlds End, a figure-eight–shaped peninsula dividing Hingham Harbor and the Weir River, is well known for its spectacular topography and landscaping. Families have enjoyed hiking its tree-lined gravel roads and admiring its dramatic glacial drumlins since the turn of the century. In the late 1800s, the property nearly became a planned community with more than 150 home sites, but instead was farmed and then turned into a private park.

Three-quarters of a century later, it was again threatened by development. The public rallied and raised $450,000, enabling the Trustees of the Reservations to buy the 251acre parcel and make it available for public enjoyment. If you look across Boston Bay toward Hull at the clusters of homes vying for ocean views and beach frontage, you will appreciate the peaceful, natural setting of Worlds End."
