There are hiking trails in the woods, great scenery,many varieties of plant life and trees…lots of birds and we saw a giant snapping turtle. Its only a few... More

This little gem has great hiking trails that offer pond-and wood-views, and a few nice places to have a picnic. The pond has it's share of frogs and wildlife so that it is pretty easy to introduce the little ones to local aquatic life. You might even be surprised by a Great Blue Heron as it takes off after getting... More

I took a hike through here having visited Walden Pond and felt that this area was more in the spirit of HD's philosophy. The trail was marked with stone tablets etched with quotes from HD, and there was a little history of the area known as Bristers Hill, which was farmed by an ex slave. The walk was very pleasant...

We downloaded a map from the Concord site, so the 5 and 8-year-old could choose which trails they wanted to follow.

This is _just_ Concord's Town Forest, a lovely bit of land not far from the town center and just across rt 2 from Walden Pond - but this is the "Fairyland" of the Alcotts and their contemporaries. With hiking trails, hills and a small pond, it is a favorite place for a short hike, and especially favored by those with... More
