Here is a place . . . . . . where you can walk a Civil War-era fort, visit historic lighthouses, explore tide pools, hike lush trails, camp under the stars, or relax while fishing, picnicking or swimming-all within reach of downtown Boston. Youth programs, visitor services, research, wildlife management, and more are coordinated on the park's 34 islands and peninsulas by the Boston Harbor Islands Partnership.

I am not sure how this generated a moderate listing when all the trails are gravelled and level. There are some offshoots that head out to a small point but again, nothing to be classified as moderate hiking. We saw plenty of strollers and ballet flats if that's any indication about the trails. Also, the description labelled this as "lightly trafficked". We found the exact opposite. The parking lot was rammed and people were milling about in every direction. It costs $6 per person to get in so I would give this is a miss if you're looking for an actual hike. Otherwise a nice stroll if you've got young kids.

Nice area, very well kept. It allows LEASHED dogs but I would not categorize it as "dog friendly". Unless you have a dog that enjoys a nice stroll, not the best place for my rambunctious two. I was well aware of the need to have them on a leash but I was planning on letting them swim. They listen and come when called but I decided to forgo that plan because I felt like I was being watched the entire time I was there. Also this is not noted in the description, there is a $6 parking fee if you are not a member, which isn't a lot, but it would have been nice to know beforehand so I could make sure to have cash on hand.
Steve M. on Worlds End Reservation Trail
Great for a casual hike. Beautiful views.
So close to Boston and so beautiful! Easy walk with gorgeous views of the ocean bay. Beautiful meadows, nicely groomed carriage roads and trails. Great for all ages and dog walking. Nice benches are available to take a break or have lunch.
Plenty of parking. The fee is $6 per person to enter the park. Well worth it!
