World's End Reservation

Hingham, MA

April 17th and December 5th, 2004

Main peninsula view from Rocky Neck World's End Reservation is a 400 acre coastal peninsula consisting of four drumlins upon which a residential subdivision was planned in the late 1800s but never constructed. Today it's fields, tree-lined cart paths, woodlands and shoreline cliffs offer great leisurely hiking opportunities and scenic views.

Group photo with Ryland We first travelled to World's End for a day hike in April 2004. Upon arrival we were greeted by Ryland (center), a Clark Alumnus from the class of 1954 who lives a stone's throw from the reservation. The sharp-eyed Ryland spotted our Clark University van as we passed his house.

Hiking up the cart path It was a beautiful spring day as we began hiking up the paths.

Rocky cliffs and grassy fields After lunch our group split up. Some explored the grassy fields and others headed for the rocky cliffs...

Group photo A second Outing Club group traveled to World's End in December 2004. It was a nice, sunny day, but very windy on the eastern exposures.

Boston skyline view The clear conditions gave us a great view of the Boston skyline.

Woodpecker The gate attendant said that 3 deer had just been spotted on the reservation, but we never saw them. We were intrigued watching this woodpecker though.

Lunch on the rocks A perfect perch for lunch.
