Emerson – Thoreau Amble

Our certified town guide leads an interactive hike that follows a meandering natural path similar to the one Emerson and Thoreau strolled as they walked from the town center to Walden Pond and Henry’s cabin site. Reflect on the power of the natural world and how it influenced both Henry David Thoreau and the world in which he lived.

This tour departs from the Concord Gun House/trail entrance along the corner of Lexington Road and Cambridge Turnpike.

Tour is 90 minutes to 2 hours.  Wear sturdy hiking shoes as the terrain is rough.
