“This wide tree-lined carriage path follows along the shore of Hingham Harbor.”— Carl Lambrecht
Family Friendly An easy path with open space for picnicking makes this a great option for a family outing.
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 hike around the northern half of the park.
