Horn Pond, Woburn, Massachusetts

woburn horn pond

Horn Pond is referred to as “Innitou” or “Mirror of the Spirit” by Native Americans. Today, many residents of Woburn and the surrounding towns start and/or end their days hiking, biking, kayaking, fishing, snowshoeing & cross country skiing around beautiful Horn Pond. You can find their adventures HERE. There are also community gardens and views of Boston from the top of Horn Pond Mountain. You can see the works of photographers that come from all over in the Horn Pond Photographic Society.

“The glacially formed 102-acre Horn Pond carries history in its waters and walkways, having once been the home of Algonquin Indians and later serving as the site for commercial ice-making businesses, sand and gravel operations, public beaches and the Woburn Parkway, a mile-long drive now open only to foot traffic.

The pond is surrounded by woods, marshes, fields and, on its west side, the 287-foot Mount Towanda, which was once used as a ski area. Hikers, joggers and nature lovers are often found on the two-mile walk around the pond.” – Kathie Ragsdale
