Hop Brook Natural Area, Framingham
This 16.5 acre reservation situated amidst residential properties, a pasture, and a hayfield, is mostly red maple swamp, and features about 1200 feet of Hop Brook, a large pond, and two small ponds.
In 2010, as part of his Eagle Scout Project, Matthew Barnes of Sudbury Troop 63 created an interpretive brochure and posted markers along the trail that correspond with the points in his writings and on the map.
