Our November trip takes us west to Leverett. Our current plan is to hit the trail Friday morning (at coordinates 42.49816, -72.47683). We will make our way to the Metacomet-Monadnock Trail (Section 14, our second segment) and hike south along Brushy Mountain to the Mosher shelter on Saturday. We will hike back the same way on Sunday. Estimated distance to backpack each day is 5 miles.

Travel There:

Meet at the Immaculate Conception Church parking lot at 7:15 AM Saturday for departure by 7:30 AM.

Travel to the trailhead is approximately 1.5 hours.

Estimated return to the church is 3:00 PM Sunday.
