This photo shows the path along the edge of the pond. The inlet in the
distance appears to be the opening to Thoreau's Cove, where Henry's cabin
was located, although there are a number of similar small coves around
the pond. To walk into town, Henry would have followed a path like this
from his cabin to the railroad tracks, then followed the tracks into Concord.
Today's path was rebuilt some time ago, and it is wider and flatter, with
simple fences on both sides to protect the plants, and stone steps down
to the pond in various places along the path.
The tour contines along this path, towards Thoreau's Cove.
