Holiday Bucket List- Winter Trail Hike

World's End State Park in Hingham, MA

December is probably not the best month to hike a mountain.  However there are still plenty of other options to get outdoors, which brings us to number two on our Holiday Bucket List- enjoy a winter trail hike this holiday season!  All you really need to do is bundle up, get on some weather proof boots and find a park near you.


We recently visited World's End State Park in Hingham, whose name may seem a bit daunting yet is far from the contrary.  World's End is a beautiful park with a mix of different landscapes from rocky coastlines to pockets of woodlands and tree-lined paths.  Keep in mind, there is a $6 admission fee for nonmembers.  But if you find yourself making frequent visits to parks throughout Massachusetts, you may want to consider becoming a Trustees Member.


With  251 acres of land, this park has a ton of ground to cover.  We recommend allowing 1.5 to 2 hours at a minimum for your visit.  The trails are moderately flat and also welcoming to cross-country skiers once more snow settles in later in the winter season.  And if you just so happen to have a horse, they also allow horseback riding with a permit.


The park is situated on a peninsula giving you views of the Weir River and Hingham Harbor from most trails.  As you can imagine, World's End is perfect visit for all seasons throughout the year, but we especially love the beauty and serenity of this park during the winter holiday season!
