Hopkinton State Park (detail / large scale), Hopkinton, MA 01748
CLICK HERE to preview the KMZ map in Google Maps
Hopkinton is best known as the starting point for the Boston Marathon, but Hopkinton State Park is one of the most popular State Parks in Eastern Massachusetts. The DCR map of Hopkinton State Park has two sides - a small scale map encompassing some of the less frequently hiked trails in the southwestern portion of the property, and a large scale map with detail of the trails and recreation areas in the main part of the Park. I have created KMZ maps of both, and by using the draw order of the KMZ files, both can be displayed on your GPSr at the same time and provide the benefits of both at the same time. [Well, it isn't quite that great. After loading both at the same time on my GPSr, I find that I must be zoomed in to the zoom level where the scale bar is 120 foot wide for this map to appear visible - at wider zooms (smaller scales) only the small scale KMZ appears. Oh well, it still functions, but not quite as good as I had hoped.]
This map is the detail / large scale map. My KMZ of the small scale map is available here.

This KMZ is created from the DCR map at:
See version history below for more information.
This KMZ map is set to Draw Order 28 so it will show 'beneath' your primary map on your Garmin KMZ-compatible GPS. It will show over my small scale map of Hopkinton State Park (as described above) but under my KMZ map of the Ashland Town Forest.
All of the images below are from a Garmin GPSMAP 78sc. The image on the left in each row is with no other maps displayed. The image on the right is with the Garmin 24K NE series TOPO map displayed.
I have posted this KMZ as freeware, so instead of paying me for it, send me a note if you found this file helpful!

Version 1.00 (2/20/2013)
Initial release using DCR map dated 2008
Area of conservation / recreation land: 506 acres or 0.79 square miles
NOTE: This is my calculation of the extents of the area(s) with publicly accessible trails on the KMZ map. This should be the area available for hiking or other recreation, but it will also include any portion of water bodies, marshes, swamps, etc. within the boundaries of the properties on the KMZ. It would also include inaccessible conservation land within the boundaries, such as a buffer zone of "Do not enter" land around a reservoir.
