Tips

Rolling hills and rocky shorelines offer sweeping views of the Boston skyline, while tree-lined carriage paths designed by famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted make delightful walking trails. $8 per person for non members/$6 for members/Children get in free.

Take Summer Street East from downtown Hingham and then take a left onto Martins Street. Follow that to the parking lot for the reservation. I don't believe there are any fees charged to park here.

Excellent trail. Mostly all scenic views and some woodsy sections. All Beautiful! It should have been 5.1 miles, but forgot to activate record for a short distance.

Super easy trail for a nice, easy-going hike. Have been here on a couple of occasions and it's always great to see wildlife and a view of Boston skyline. It's a bit of a drive to get there from anywhere, what with it being in Hull.

Very well kept trail and easy walk. Perfect on a hot and humid day to have shade. Pretty views. With reservation system didn’t feel busy or overcrowded. Would go again.

Very nice easy stroll close to Boston. Would go again. Have to reserve in advance currently due to Covid 19 which is almost better as it wasn't very busy

A easy and pleasant walk in a well maintain path with beautiful harbor views of the city. Be advised there is a $15 entrance fee.

I’ve been here before in the off season and it was lovely, but just tried to go today and had no idea you needed to pre-book your tickets online! So make sure you plan your trip here out- can’t be spontaneous!

Beautiful trails and views of the harbor! Would definitely come back! A little brutal to be asked to wear a mask on a 4 mile+ walk, but understood during these times. Admittedly, it’s not well enforced so really your own call. Small parking area and currently need to make a reservation prior to work the day you are hoping to go.

Did this on a snowy day in December. Wasn’t crowded at all and only saw people in the parking lot. View was great and can’t wait to come back in the summer time.

Although it was a blustery day I really enjoyed this loop with my dog. Saw lots of sea birds - bring your binoculars. Was getting crowded in lot as I was leaving so go early to avoid the crowds.

Beautiful area with nice trails and shorelines. It gets very busy here on the weekend and parking was limited, we had to wait a while for a spot to open up. There is a cash entry fee if you aren't a member. Worth it!

Beautiful walk and a birders dream...I saw so many birds including bluebirds, downy woodpeckers, juncos, an osprey that nearly took my head off, and a pair of bald eagles! Very windy, expect it to feel colder than the ambient temperature. Will definitely be back
