December, 2021


December, 2021 featured some pretty wild swings in weather in the Green Mountain State. High temperature records were shattered as we experienced 60+ degrees, followed by days of low temps and 6 to 8 inches of snow. Pretty bizarre weather as we close out 2021 and look forward to the New Year! With the wild weather, accompanying high winds brought down an impressive number of tree limbs at Mobbs Farm. Special thanks to everyone who pitched in to clean up downed trees this past month. Should you encounter any blocked trails, please let us know by emailing the committee at: mobbsfarm@jerichovt.gov

Saying good-bye to the "dark days" with fire


A celebration of the Winter Solstice took place at Mobbs Farm with an impressive bonfire, attended by committee members, neighbors and Jericho residents invited to attend on Front Porch Forum. The fuel for the blaze consisted of old, hemlock beams that had been pulled up and replaced by Vermont Youth Conservation Corps. workers, when the old treads were replaced in the summer of 2019. The beams had been stacked up near a swampy area at the bottom of the Meadows section and ‘seasoned’ for the past two years. It was great seeing everyone at the bonfire and a festive way to clear the pile of debris. There are tentative plans to host another bonfire in the winter months ahead, so stay tuned!
With the arrival of new snow this month, the SNOWDOG groomer will be hitting the trails in the weeks ahead. Please be sure to yield to the groomer, if you are on the trails when they are being groomed. Kindly avoid walking on freshly groomed trails until they have set-up and hardened. This will ensure that the quality of walking, skiing, fatbiking and trekking will be topnotch for all visitors to Mobbs Farm! Special thanks to Christine and Dan Smith, who have been spearheading the trail grooming initiatives at Mobbs and teaching the members of the grooming team how to operate the SNOWDOG grooming machine.


While visiting Mobbs Farm, you may encounter new signs identifying boundaries of the property, so that you don’t wander onto adjacent, private land. Kindly respect our neighbor’s private property and even if a trail departing Mobbs looks tempting, please stay within the boundaries of Mobbs Farm while visiting Mobbs Farm trails, located in the heart of Jericho.
