Spring Hike - World's End, Hingham MA

Let's get out to Hingham, MA and hike World's End. After we Finish the hike we will head into Hull to the Sea Dog Brew Pub for a late lunch and drinks.

Let's Meet at the Gate House NOT AT MY CAR. The Gate House is Easier to find on the property.

About World's End
Rolling hills and rocky shorelines offer sweeping views of the Boston skyline, while tree-lined carriage paths designed by famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted make delightful walking trails.

What makes World’s End a special place?
We think it’s the tree-lined carriage paths and sweeping views of the Boston skyline, only 15 miles away. The 251-acre coastscape includes rocky shores, broad hillsides, and open fields bracketed by pockets of woodlands. The property is ideal for walking, picnicking, jogging, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, or simply enjoying nature and the outdoors.

  • Dot

    Hi Victoria, I forgot to send you meeting spot, it would be better to meet by the gate house then in parking lot. The parking goes off in levels in the woods. Can you still change?
