“Wide tree-lined gravel paths wind around the northern half of the park situated in Hingham Harbor.”

The World's End loop circles a small hill that forms the northern half of the park. Wide tree-lined paths with easy inclines and descents allow for a range of activities from biking to easy strolling to trail running.
Starting at The Bar
, which is a low, thin strip of land separating Hingham Harbor from the Weir River, the path climbs gently uphill on the east side of the peninsula. Enjoy expansive views of Nantasket in the water beyond before intersecting with The Valley
, a connector that cuts directly across to the Hingham Harbor side. Turn sharp right instead to continue around the loop.
As this portion of the trail loops around, with open fields to both sides, the Boston skyline can be seen in the distance. At approximately 0.8 miles, you'll intersect with the other end of The Valley
connector. Again, turn right to continue around the loop for another 0.5 miles before descending back to The Bar
