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,...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...More

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