Need a place to reflect on life? Do as Henry David Thoreau did and visit Walden Pond. The pond is now a state reservation. Visitors can fish, swim, or walk around the areas trails. A replica of Thoreaus home is available for viewing to the public. The reservation is home to 400 acres, including the 102-foot deep kettle-hole pond. The undeveloped wood surrounding the reservation is called Walden Woods.
You can enjoy a tour by one of the park interpreters to learn about the history of Walden Pond. To protect the area, only a thousand people are allowed on the reservation at one time. Dogs, bicycles, floatation devices, and grills are not allowed on the site.
