Public Access Policy Adopted
The Warren Land Trust has adopted a public access policy for the eight properties owned by the Land Trust. This policy does not apply to properties on which the Land Trust holds conservation easements, but are owned by the private land owners.
The Land Trust's own properties consist of more than 215 acres of land, including the Dorothy Maier Preserve on Sackett Hill Road, the Douglas Preserve north of the new Warren Town Hall, Sunset Pond on Cunningham Road, the Cashion Preserve on Route 45, the Eel Pond Preserve on Route 341, the Skidmore Preserve on Milton Road, the Coords Preserve off Angevine Road and the new Melius Road Preserve.
In an effort to balance public benefit and safety concerns with the preservation of the natural resources on Land Trust properties, these uses are permitted:
- Hiking and walking
- Cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing
- Horseback riding in groups not to exceed four (4) horses
- Scientific and educational studies, with written consent of Land Trust
- Recreational uses not prohibited below, with written consent of Land Trust
- Agricultural uses, with written consent of Land Trust
Uses that are not allowed on Land Trust properties are hunting, logging, removal or destruction of trees and plants, camping, fires, operation of mountain bikes, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) and snow-mobiles and any other uses harmful to the natural resources located on the Land Trust properties.
