The Trustees of Reservations, one of the largest conservation organizations in Massachusetts, will dedicate a new property in western Massachusetts this Saturday.

Mount Warner, rising 500 feet above the surrounding farmland in North Hadley, is a familiar landmark that is easily accessible to people seeking active and passive recreation on 160 acres of gently-sloping woodlands.

  Joshua Berk Knox, Superintendent for the Trustees of Reservations, leads visitors over a two-mile long newly constructed trail that loops through the woods on a crisp fall day.
