The gateway to the Weir River Woods was purchased a few years back with a grant to help conserve this beautiful parcel of land. Hiking through these short trails will bring you to some spectacular views of World's End and the river. You can visit the Hull Land Conservation Trust's website (www.hulllandconservationtrust.org) for maps and pictures of the Weir River Woods. You can visit our little 'Green' building on George Washington Blvd, Hull's green technology showcase. With solar lighting and heating, wind power, reverse osmosis water and water conservation through rain gardens, it is a multi-use facility and available for functions under the Weir River Watershed Association (www.weirriver.org).Remember while you are there to check out the Hull Artist Studio Connection to view gorgeous works of art from local artists when available.
Kayaking: With many areas to 'put in', Hull has some great relaxing and adventurous trips. If you have your own kayak or rent one here, you will be able to paddle the Weir River, visit area islands, or even go sea kayaking out in the open ocean. Ramps are located at Steamboat Wharf Marina, 'A' Street Pier, 8th St. boat ramp, and Pemberton Pier. Some of these areas have free parking, but please be respectful in residential neighborhoods not to block driveways or obvious parking spaces in front of houses.
Nantasket Kayaks - Hull's only place to not only rent a kayak, but you can sign up for a tour or even a lesson by one of their very qualified tour guides. They are located on Steamboat Wharf and can be reached via their website.
