Walk around Walden Pond and the spot that was once home to the renowned author, Henry David Thoreau.
The Walden Pond Reservation is located south of Massachusetts Route 2 and (mostly) west of Massachusetts Route 126 in Concord and Lincoln, Massachusetts. The reservation is 335 acres and its principal feature is Walden Pond, a 64.5-acre body of water. A short way north of the pond the site of Thoreau’s cabin is marked by a series of granite posts. Portions of the pond’s shore are beach, while other parts descend steeply to the water from trails that ring the pond.
