“Traverse rolling hills on this bayside journey through World's End Reservation.”— Carl Lambrecht
Family Friendly Strollers with small wheels might be challenged by this trail's gravel surface, but for those on foot, it provides a fantastic family getaway.
On the other side of The Bar, another uphill grade climbs around World's End. Keep right along the Weir River side until a trail junction at the crossover with The Valley. Turn right to continue counter-clockwise around World's End with views of the Boston skyline in the distance, until reaching another junction with The Valley on the Hingham Harbor side of World's End. Stay right to continue around the bend before descending back to The Bar. After crossing back over The Bar, stay right for another uphill grade along Barnes Road that will bring you back to the tidal marsh bridge and park entrance.
Another option is Weir River Road, which starts from the back of the parking lot and winds through wooded paths with an option to hike under a smaller path to a rocky overlook of the tidal marsh.
