Walden Pond State Reservation

Walden Pond State Reservation Professional Review and Guide

"Hiking doesn’t get any more straightforward or literary than circling 102-foot-deep Walden Pond in the very steps of Henry David Thoreau. This glacial kettle-hole pond is surrounded by Walden Woods, a vast, 2,680-acre tract of preserved forest land.


So close to civilization in today’s world, it still truly feels like you’re in the middle of nowhere once you’re on the trail. Thoreau’s cabin site is now merely an outline of what is the birthplace of America’s Back-to-the-Land Movement."
