Overview

Free entrance for members of The Trustees, but it's $6 per adult for non-members.
Rolling hills and marshlands sandwiched in between Hingham Harbor and the Weir River set the scenery for this beautiful run. Along the route, enjoy a series of easy, gravel paths that allow you to focus on the gorgeous scenery around you. Tidal marshes featuring egrets, herons, and other birds act as the foreground to gorgeous views of the Boston skyline.
Features: Birding — Fall Colors — Views — Wildlife
Dogs: Leashed

Description

Start from the park entrance by leaving the parking area to cross a wooden bridge over the beginning of the tidal marsh. From here, the gravel path splits, with paths going around both sides of Planter's Hill with easy uphill grades. Stay left to follow Brewer Road along Hingham Harbor before descending to The Bar.

On the other side of The Bar, another uphill grade climbs around World's End. Keep right along the Weir River side until a trail junction at the crossover with The Valley. Turn right to continue counter-clockwise around World's End with views of the Boston skyline in the distance, until reaching another junction with The Valley on the Hingham Harbor side of World's End. Stay right to continue around the bend before descending back to The Bar. After crossing back over The Bar, stay right for another uphill grade along Barnes Road that will bring you back to the tidal marsh bridge and park entrance.

Another option is Weir River Road, which starts from the back of the parking lot and winds through wooded paths with an option to run under a smaller path to a rocky overlook of the tidal marsh.
