Beden Brook, also Bedens Brook, Beden's Brook, or Beeden's Brook, is a tributary of the Millstone River in central New Jersey in the United States.

Course

The headwaters of the brook are variously given. The more southerly branch of the stream (the official USGS source at 40°23′4″N 74°46′34″W / 40.38444°N 74.77611°W / 40.38444; -74.77611) rises to the west of Hopewell, flowing east, turning south below Hopewell, and then east again to meet the more northerly branch (sourced at 40°24′57″N 74°46′18″W / 40.41583°N 74.77167°W / 40.41583; -74.77167). This rises on the southern slopes of Sourland Mountain, cutting a valley that defines the west side of Pheasant Hill. It flows south to the junction of the two headwater branches at 40°23′2″N 74°44′36″W / 40.38389°N 74.74333°W / 40.38389; -74.74333. The combined streams then flow eastward, passing through the Bedens Brook Club to the south of Blawenburg. Past Blawenburg, the twisting brook turns to the northeast, and Cherry Run enters from the south. The brook passes under the Georgetown and Franklin Turnpike (CR-518) and receives Rock Brook on the grounds of the former North Princeton Developmental Center. Turning eastward again, the brook passes under U.S. Route 206 and receives Pike Run before emptying into the Millstone River.
