Around Middletown in 80 Days: Day 6
Needing a day of R&R, Phileas Fogg took some local recommendations to journey just over the border from Middletown to visit Miller’s Pond. To get there From Route 9: Take Exit 11. Follow 155 West. Turn left onto Millbrook Road. Bear left onto Foothills Road. Parking area is on the right.
A quiet place, with no boat launch, this is a wonderful quiet location for swimming, picnicking, hiking and fishing. Phileas is sure to enjoy some napping. Millers Pond is unique in that its principal source of water comes from large springs which create a body of unpolluted water excellent for small mouth bass or trout. The original dam at the pond was erected some time before 1704.
