Learn about the poet-philosopher Henry David Thoreau, his stay at Walden Pond from 1845‑1847, and his enduring legacy. This program is for visitors of all ages. The tour will begin at the Thoreau house replica, near the parking lot.We will also walk a moderate ½ mile to the site where Thoreau once lived.
This is a free program but there is a $5 parking fee. No dogs are permitted unless they are working guides. In order to protect the water and landscape, Walden Pond has a visitor capacity; when capacity is reached the reservation closes for several hours.
