What is the Mobbs Farm?

The Mobbs Farm Property, acquired by the Town of Jericho in 1970, is located approximately one mile south of Jericho Center on Browns Trace. The property consists of over 260 acres of both open and forested land and is roughly separated into two equal halves by Fitzsimonds Road. Mobbs Farm is open to all forms of non-motorized recreation, including: hiking, running, cross-country skiing, horseback riding, and mountain biking.

The westerly parcel of Mobbs, often called "Mobbs Valley", has 5 miles of recreational trails that traverse wide-open fields and both hard and soft-wood forest sections. Some of the trails also parallel Mill Brook where there is a pleasant bench to sit and enjoy the water.

The easterly parcel, often called "Mobbs Hill" has almost 125 acres of mostly forested land. There are four more miles of trails on the Mobbs Hill side of the property that tend to be a bit steeper than on the Mobbs Valley side, but equally as nice. Mobbs Hill has trails leading from both the Fitzsimonds Road and Browns Trace. The Browns Trace side of the Mobbs Farm property also contains the Town of Jericho town garage and a former landfill that has been closed and capped. Please note that all sections of the Town Garage are off-limits at all times to users.

Mobbs Farm can be accessed from the Fitzsimonds Road parking area. The Fitzsimonds Road area is located approximately one mile after turning off of Browns Trace. The Mobbs Committee intends to develop detailed maps to help plan your outing. Mountain bike and horseback riders are strongly encouraged to ride to the trails instead of using the parking lot.


MOBBS FARM MAPS BELOW:

The Mobbs Valley and Mobbs Hill maps are posted at the Mobbs Farm Trail head kiosk on Fitzsimonds Road. The maps identify some major trails by name and identify 6 key intersections. The maps at the kiosk are 16" x 21", while the maps at the intersections are 8.5" x 11". The maps posted at this website are scaled to 8.5" x 11" (3300x2550 pixels).

On the trails, there are two aids to navigation-intersection maps/markers and arrows on trees on two main routes. All "main" trails on the map are well used, and should be easy to follow. Some of the "secondary" trails have very little use, and they may be difficult to follow.

You can print just a portion of a map. For example, if you are interested only in the Americana trail on Mobbs Hill, you can zoom in on the trail, and in "File:Print...." select "Current view" for the "Print Range".

    Recent visitors to Mobbs may have noticed a narrow corduroy track winding through part of the Valley side. The Mobbs Committee is periodically operating a small grooming machine on select trails to smooth out snow lumps and holes for a more enjoyable winter experience for walkers, skiers, and fatbike riders.

    The benefits of grooming will extend into spring as the packed snow helps to protect trails from ruts and erosion. We hope that Mobbs users enjoy having the option of using a groomed winter trail when visiting. Please contact any Mobbs Committee member with questions or comments on our winter...
