Defenilty Great for families. Varied trails, kids can do most while still fun for better riders.
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.
