Sullivan Farm Property

Route 202 at intersection with Route 109, New Milford, Litchfield County, Connecticut

105 acres

undeveloped park land

7/07/2005.  I am not sure we found the property.  But I did check out the northeast corner of the intersection.  We parked in the large parking lot of a huge bank building.  On our right the land heads downhill to a cattail marsh.  To the left and right of the north end of the parking area is a large field. 

I followed a rough trail by heading along the parking lot out to the large field; turned right and walked along the north edge of the marsh; turned right again to head down into the marsh; took a small side path into the woods on my left only to discover that it is private property, no trespassing.  Walked along the north side of the marsh, turned left and walked along its western side, turned left again to walk along its south side.  Then walked out of the marsh to Route 109; turned right and walked the short distance on the road back to the large parking lot.
