Habitats and Wildlife
This launch ramp is located on the Weir River, and offers access to the Weir River Outer Estuary and Boston Harbor.
The Weir River finds its source at the confluence of Crooked Meadow River and Fulling Mill Brook, and then flows north through Hingham, with Tower Brook and Accord Brook joining it in its first mile. It gradually turns northeast and flows for another 1.4 miles, through Weir River Farm and eventually into Foundry Pond. The Weir River Estuary, designated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as an Area of Critical Concern, begins just below the manmade dam at the pond. The mile-wide estuary forms the border between Hingham and Hull, and empties into Hingham Bay.
