Great Brook Farm Professional Review and Guide
"Circle the very pond beside which Henry David Thoreau resided for two years in the 1840s, writing his timeless treatises on nature’s value to mankind. The busy, popular destination offers trails aplenty. Our hike circles Walden Pond, stopping by the site of Thoreau’s Cabin. Leave Walden Pond for Heywood Meadow, a marsh, and then climb to Emersons Cliff, named for Thoreau’s friend Ralph Waldo Emerson. From there you complete the circuit around Walden Pond, passing the main beach area."
