I walked around Walden Pond, last night, in the rain. It was a transcendent experience. If you have not already, please read Walden by Henry David Thoreau, before visiting this pond.

Nice and easy walk. I have run into off leash dogs when walking my lab but owners are usually quick to remedy.

Trail was in great shape with the exception of a few fresh fallen trees. Connected with the Tully Loop and took that for a while

Great place to go for a quick hike! Easy trail, simple to follow, my dog loved it!

Rocky trail with several scenic overlooks. Viewing platform at the top. Recommend good footwear. Avoid when rocks are wet especially links like the Bicentennial trail. Treasure this place so close to home.

Nice, easy walk around Walden Pond, great views of the water.

Great place for light hiking and casual walks
Good views over meadows

Please note that this is open to cross country skiing ONLY. No hikers.

great Trails, nice hills and a view at tipling rock, dog friendly but on leash.

We loved this, start at the location they recommend. Interesting river with an old mill, beaver lodges within feet of a river, two really pretty lakes, heap an ice cream at the barn in summer. Lots of trails to explore. A real gem

Hiked a variation of the Reservation Loop Trail from suggestion by Katharine Lange. Park at Visitors Center and follow Donbrowo Trail to ski area. Donbrowo not shown on my AllTrails app. Pass lodge and pick up Balance Rock Trail to Old Indian Trail. Balance Rock is an interesting large erratic. Avoid crossing active ski area by bearing right onto Semuhenna to West Side then back to Old Indian. Check out vista to SW not marked on map before final climb to summit. Down Harrington passed Vista well marked to Link to Jack Frost (very nice walk through large evergreens) to High Meadow (another vista) and back to Visitors center via Bicentennial. High Meadow to Bicentennial link not shown on AT app. About 5 mile loop in about 3 hours. Certainly would do this loop again. 40 degrees and 20 MPH winds made it chilly on top.

Did Mountain House Trail. Lot of people but nice trail.

Flat and easy. Also easy to accidentally follow the wrong trail. It’s pretty. Nothing amazing but nothing unpleasant.

trail and beach both make a great walk. easier to rest and enjoy the view on beach, perfect for a snack. very clean and popular but not busy when i visted on a beautiful early winter saturday. folks on kayaks and fisherman looked like they were having the most fun.

excellent hike for adults and older kids

Our barn recently organized trail ride to Beaver Brook. With the assistance of the Association staff, we planned two 90-minute loops on well-groomed, multi-use trails. We lunched at picnic table at Brown Lane Barn that also has parking and a turn-around for trailers. You can also access water for the horses here and a port-o-potty for humans, however, check ahead of time to make sure the water is turned on OR bring your own for the horses. The Association prefers riders to clean up after their horses, however, we came from a distance and arranged to make a trail maintenance donation instead. There is no entrance fee. The trails are very diverse and our experienced riders and horses were able to walk, trot, canter and gallop during the ride. There are bridges and a few steep areas along the route which should be factored into your horses' preferences;)

Nice to walk and jog

An interesting place . The trail to the right brings you to the falls. With the recent rain the falls were flowing nicely. However the trail becomes flooded at the falls .Someone commented that the beavers made a dam. I retraced my steps and took trail to the left . It actually is a pretty legit hike up a small hill . The trail isn’t well marked and I ended up just walking back on that trail. Not a bad spot overall

Beautiful day with 70 degrees at end of October. Who'd have thought. Parked at visitor's center, took Bicentennial to High Meadow Trl to Jack Frost then Mountain House Trl to summit. Pretty crowded at summit with clear views to Mt Monadnock, Mt Greylock and several other mountains and Boston in distance. On way down, we took Harrington Trl to Link Trl then to Loop Trl and finally Bicentennial which led us back to our car. Steep in a few spots, but not too difficult. I concur with the rating of moderate.

wicked coooool

Nice spot but way too crowded. Have to pay to park unless you have a DCR pass. It’s very pretty and historical but it’s like walking around on a busy street in Boston . I was here on Friday. It must be a zoo on the weekend

Easy walk on the beach or by dirt path around the pond. Path isn't very wide at times.

took bicentennial to high meadow to jack frost then Harrington up to summit. took pine trail down. pretty at the top but didn't like that the summit is accessible by car, kinda ruins it to get to the top and see a bunch of people and cars.

Beautiful pond and great hiking! Not a lot of people and plenty of opportunities for photos!

Recommend parking at visitor's center then taking the Donboro Trail--> Balance Rock --> Old Indian --> *Summit* --> Loop Trail back to parking lot. Gives you summit toward the end, something to look forward to! Views were truly spectacular, could see all the way from Mt Greylock to Mt Monadnock to Boston. Trails were well marked and clear. Food afterwards: Princeton Pizza House!

Loved this place. Parked off North Road . Was limited for time but in 40 minutes was able to do about 2 miles . Did the loops that stayed near the pond . Very pretty. Trails well marked . Will be back !

I can walk here from my house so I visit quite frequently with my dog. We love swimming after a trail run and picking wild blueberries in summer! In the winter, snowshoeing is also fun.
