New Fairfield Land Trust: Mead Property
13 Rock Ridge Road
US 84 east; exit 6 for Route 37 north; pass by the Federal Correctional Institution of Danbury; right turn onto Route 39 north; left turn onto Dick Finn Road;
Open Space from a new subdivision of 70 acres off of Dick Finn Road . Half of the forested area is a wetland with vernal pools. The surrounding area is dry and has an existing trail system used by hikers and bikers alike. These lands abut CL&P, Pootatuck, and the Nixon estate large area designated for conservation.
The hope is to create access both from the new subdivision, once built, and from the Pootatuck parking area on Shortwoods Road and enhance and maintain the existing trail system.
