Spirit of Henry David Thoreau’s ‘Walden’ lives on at state park
Thoreau is perhaps best known for his book “Walden,” which was inspired by the two years he spent living simply in a self-built cabin along the shore of Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts.
 
This beautiful slice of nature still exists today in the form of a Walden Pond State Reservation. Often considered the birthplace of the conservation movement, this protected 335-acre park features hiking trails, a replica of Thoreau’s cabin and the 102-foot-deep kettle-hole pond, which is a popular swimming destination in the summer.
