Description

Mobbs Valley is used by walkers, bikers, hunters and naturalists. Its variable terrain and ecological make up attracts a wide variety of wildlife. Singletrack mountain bike trails interlace with wider, level paths. The singletrack has been described as a "roller-coaster" of beginner to intermediate level. The loop is fast and super fun and may be tackled in both directions (although it was laid out to be ridden in the direction marked - please note that signage is scarce at this time). The Mobbs Valley trails were carefully thought out to take advantage of all the salient features of the topography, as well as all the variety mother nature has to offer (including a wonderful swimming hole!). Whether you're running with your dog or racing through the singletrack, you'll enjoy what Mobbs Valley has to offer.

Other Information

Mobbs Valley (and Mobbs Hill) is managed by the Mobbs Committee. Formed by the Town of Jericho in April 2007, the committee hosts trail days, actively manages the property, and is developing a comprehensive management plan for the property. The committee is also in the process of updating trail data and developing adequate signage for the property.

When I went there in June, several parts of the field were very soggy. Moderately traveled on the Saturday I was these: several families, a couple of individual walkers and a couple of dogs. Lovely views of a creek. Trail is well maintained.
These awesome businesses support our goal of connecting people to outdoor adventures!
