Nice little trail. A good amount up hill. Gets your heart rate up, which I like. Tiny parking lot, but there is some street parking.

World's End is beautiful! Yes it costs $6 pp if you're not a member. It costs money to maintain green space. They just moved the gate this summer, so they are working out some logistics... the gate used to be at the entrance but the locals complained. Lovely spot for all - young and old, 2 and 4 legs. Views of Boston. You can get more than 3 miles if you take some of the side trails. Don't miss the Rocky area.

Who chargers people for a walk?

Beautiful place to walk around and enjoy, the views of the Boston skyline are pretty amazing and I’m pretty sure its safe to swim in some parts. The only downside is it’s not free

Bring bird seed to feed the birds. we saw many people hand feeding the birds. Great place for families. All kids should check out the Rockery Loop. Picnic tables for lunch.

This is one of those spots I would gladly head to over and over again with kids of any age! Equally great for adults who love hiking with plenty of loop options and interesting waypoints (my favorite were the pond loop and observation tower).

I would agree with other reviews that while you need have a little bit of patience, if you have sunflower seeds the chickadees will be eating right out of your hand… we also spotted loads of turtles, and a faun as well as other local wildlife! I was hiking with kids aged 6, 8, and 14. We got about 2.2 miles in and spent about an hour and a half hiking. Bring bug spray and be tick-savvy.... we had to pull a couple despite being careful.

Everybody loved this hike! We’ll be back for sure!

One of our favorite places to take the pups - gorgeous!!

Very nice walk with my two little ones. Very pretty views of the water.

Went morning weekday it was fairly empty. A lot of trails off the main one and it had nice changes in elevation.

Great trail! There are a lot of cool glacial rock formations, and there is one part where you go over a bridge through a swap that was lots of fun.

This place is beautiful and peaceful. Lots of bugs! Bring bug spray.

This place is great and well maintained!

I have been here several times, yet this is the first time with the new baby, so I'm carrying 'almost 2 months' on my front, and 'almost 22 months on my back' (it's always a good stretch on a couple of the hills) and I was really pleased that in a wooded area with water, there were very, very few bugs. Huge Plus For Me! Pleasant trail, as always.

Didn’t get a chance to make the hike as we were greeted by an individual explaining to us that we needed to go back to the gate as we were not members and would therefore need to pay a fee... To go for a walk. No where on the way in does it state that you would need to pay which was why we were so surprised and to be honest, annoyed enough to just leave. No thank you. Plenty of other beautiful places in the area to walk and enjoy.

It would’ve been nice to know it cost money ahead of time. No thanks. Bye.

Stunning and peaceful.

This is a really easy hike any time of year. I don’t know who is rating this as “moderate!” Beautiful scenery all year round.

nice views, lots of wildlife, and lots of birds! be on the lookout for poison ivy, and there are ticks here in the summer.

Hot spot for birding

Best trail ever if you’ve never held a wild bird before?! You can bring or buy sunflower seeds and chickadees will land on your hands as long as you’re still. Greatest experience ever will definitely be going back! Trail itself was really nice and was very beautiful but the bird are the best part great trail for kids/family’s!!

Spent hours roaming around, easy hike with beautiful views everywhere!

literally noone leashes their dogs 1 girl didnt even have a leash for hers was really annoyed with all the dogs coming up to mine when i clearly didnt want them to even cut my hand trying to keep my dog back. otherwise a very nice hike.

Check the tide chart before you go; you can get stuck if you go out before high tide. This is a beautiful, scenic walk from the visitor center (great for kids and adults) that has a wooden plank boardwalk out to the bay. During Summer the boardwalk is surrounded by beautiful, lush green sea grass. At low tide and sunset there will be small tidal pools that fill up and reflect the sunset colors which are fun to walk around. Be prepared for green head flies. You may see some turtles as well.

Nice easy but diverse trails

I have a walking group and this is one of my favorite places to walk. The views are beautiful, but I think the serene feeling that you get when you are there makes it even more beautiful. My first visit I saw 16 deer, a blue gray heron, a family of turtles and of course the chickidies that ate from my hands topped it off. Then there is the cave and the climbing tower. All seasons are great walks there but late October the trails are filled with autumn colors. I am thrilled that we found this place.

Been going here since I was a kid. Now I bring my kids. Fantastic educational programming as well. Being a small bag of bird seed. The chickadees are super friendly. The restrooms are much appreciated for families and don't forget to bring cash or a check book to pay admission.

Nice walk. Well planned park.

Nice trails, no markers but the place is small enough so it doesn’t matter. Rated easy for sure, but fun nonetheless. We also came across about a dozen deer, a really nice surprise.

Great little hike with our toddler.

lovely trail that's suitable for all ages.
