The Walden Pond and Woods App

The Walden Pond and Woods App is designed to offer visitors from near and far a comprehensive experience and understanding of the literature, landscape, and people who made Walden Woods the special place it is, today.

The first app tour is The Guide to Walden Pond. The content for this tour is primarily derived from The Guide to Walden Pond: An Exploration of the History, Nature, Landscape, and Literature of one of America’s most Iconic Places, by Robert M. Thorson. The Guide to Walden Pond app tour has 15 stops with photographs, historical and reflection segments, narration, and more. The tour takes you around the pond and is intended to provide on-site visitors, as well as virtual visitors from afar, a meaningful and informative experience about the iconic Walden Pond and Walden Pond State Reservation. You can purchase a copy of The Guide to Walden Pond: An Exploration of the History, Nature, Landscape, and Literature of one of America’s most Iconic Places in our online shop!
