In 2004, Harold and Eleanor Mosher donated sixteen acres on the south flank of Brushy Mountain to Rattlesnake Gutter Trust so that hikers could continue to enjoy the Metacoment-Monadnock Trail. That trail has since been moved closer to Route 202 and renamed the New England National Scenic Trail. The former (white-dot) trail is still in use and connects the Mosher Property to Shutesbury Road.
