This NFA owned 7 acre wooded parcel is located off Walnut Tree Hill Road within Rocky Glen State Park. It contains typical northern forest tree species including some very large hemlock and oak trees. The rolling topography leads to a steep cliff point overlooking the Pootatuck River and Black Bridge with a recently installed fence for safety. Down below and bordering the southern boundary is Rocky Glen State Park. From this end of the parcel you have view to the south across the rolling hills to Fairfield Hills. Access to this point is found from the park below and provides hiking access from Walnut Tree Hill Road to Rocky Glen State Park. This parcel is bounded on the north side by land owned by the Town of Newtown. Al’s trail, a 10+ mile long Town of Newtown trail that connects the Old Fairfield Hills Hospital campus with Paugusset State Forest North crosses the property as well.
400 feet below is the swift-running Pootatuck River and the Shorewood building, known to old timers as the Dutch Rubber factory or the Upper factory. Thus, the Wasserman property looks down onto some of Newtown’s most picturesque nineteenth century scenes. More >
