World's End with AMC

Come celebrate Halloween with this moderately paced walk of approximately 4-5 miles, exploring the landscape of a unique peninsula in Boston Harbor. Meet at 10:00 AM, World's End, $5.00 per person entrance fee for non-Trustees members.  Join us for breakfast at 8:15 at the Panera Bread in the Shops at Five on Long Pond Road and to carpool to the hike. (We will leave at 9AM for the carpool to the World's End.)

The terrain is moderately hilly (over the 4 drumlins), with a mixture of carriage ways and sometimes rocky paths. Boots or shoes with good traction are recommended. The reservation has stunning views, but is exposed to the sea and wind, so dress accordingly, in layers and with good wind protection, as well as sunglasses if it is bright out! 

Bring water, a thermos with hot drink, snacks or lunch. 

Directions: From Rt. 3, take Exit 14, Rt. 228 North for 6.5 mi. Turn left onto Rt. 3A (at traffic light), and follow for 0.7 mi. Turn right onto Summer St. (traffic light). At the major intersection with Rockland St. (another traffic light), continue straight across onto Martin's Lane. Follow for 0.7 mi. to entrance at end of road. After stopping at the entrance gate to show your Trustees card or pay $5, park in the first lot you see on the left. There are portable toilets to the left of the parking area, up a small hill.

Difficulty: C3C (less than 5 miles at moderate pace with moderate hills)

*$5.00 fee for Non-Trustees of Reservations members
