The dreamy name of the Hapgood Wright Town Forest's pond is entirely deserved!

The dreamy name of the Hapgood Wright Town Forest's pond is entirely deserved! This gorgeous pond has a storied history, reflected in the name of the Emerson Thoreau Amble that runs through the property, connecting Concord Center and Walden Pond. The Bay Circuit Trail also passes through this parcel. Choose from many trails that traverse the forest, hills and wetlands. This forest is especially beautiful in the fall, and a great place for leaf peeping.
