For the next 18-24 months, the Eversource Transmission Line Project, which runs adjacent to Hop Brook Conservation Land, will be under construction. During this time, the rail bed corridor will not be accessible to the public and trail connections between Hop Brook and Memorial Forest will not be available. The Town has worked with the contractor to permit two trail connections, shown on this map, during the time of year restrictions when construction cannot occur on this section of the corridor. Only these two crossings will be available for public use from May 1 through July 31, 2023. Hikers will need to stay either north or south of the rail corridor all other times of the year. Please use the respective trail heads (either the Hop Brook Conservation Land or the Women’s Federation parking areas on Dutton Road, or the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge on Hudson Road) to access these respective trail systems.

Residents may direct questions about the project to or 1-833-836-0302.
