“This wide tree-lined carriage path follows along the shore of Hingham Harbor.”

This trail follows the western side of the park along Hingham Harbor. A wide tree-lined path with easy inclines and descents allows for a range of activities from biking to easy strolling to trail running.
Brewer Road begins at the entrance to the park, crossing a bridge over the opening to the Damde Meadows tidal marsh. Egrets and other waterfowl can be spotted easily in the marsh. After crossing the bridge, an easy incline over Pine Hill will bring you to the Planters Hill Loop
after 0.26 miles. Keep left to continue along Brewer Road. The Planters Hill Loop
rejoins in just 0.15 miles, and after an easy descent you'll end at The Bar
, a thin strip of land connecting the two halves of the park.
From the end of Brewer Road, you can retrace your steps to return to the entrance of the park, turn right to return via Barnes Road
, or connect to the World's End
for a longer run around the northern half of the park.
