Description

This is a very interesting replica of Thoreau's cabin, as described in his book Walden. This cabin is located near a small pond on site. While there isn't much historical significance to this particular building, it is interesting to be able to set yourself back in the shoes of such an important author.

Short Walk: This building is a mere feet from the Scenic Loop Trail.

Family Friendly: It is a very short hike to access this gem, where you will find a small library of childrens' books.
