Hazel Brook Conservation Area, Wayland
Hazel Brook Conservation Area (48.4 acres) rewards your senses almost immediately by the sound of the rushing waters of Hazel Brook, soon followed by the sight of a beautiful pond.
Don't stop there, for a moderately easy hike uphill through the quiet woods leads you to a network of more than 65 miles of trails through Weston Town Forest and other public land. A figure-eight route through the property takes about one hour, plus any additional time you choose to devote to Weston town trails beyond.
From the intersection of Route 20 and Routes 126 and 27 in Wayland, go north on Route 126 (Concord Road) 1.2 mi. Turn right on Glezen Road. Go 0.7 mi (bearing left to stay on Glezen), to Hazelbrook Road, an unpaved road, and go 0.1 mi. and park on right side of road. If you reach Lincoln Road intersection, go back about0.1 mi. There is space for two cars parallel to the road.
