A Popular Loop Trail

At the entrance to Walden Pond, you walk down a paved path with a railing to the sidewalk that runs in front of the lifeguard house (top left). To the right of the lifeguard house is the main beach area (top right) where families, friends, and a few fishermen (below) spend the day.

People swim and kayak or row out on the pond. Sometimes in the winter we see a man breaking the ice to go for a swim. In the fall, there are a few trees that offer brilliant foliage against the evergreen backdrop.

Places to Eat

Papa Razzi (in Concord)

Excellent and unique Italian dishes. Pricey.

Leave Walden Pond and travel towards Route 2. Turn left on to Route 2 and travel several miles. Papa Razzi is on the right before you get to a traffic rotary.
