Trailhead

Going east on Route 15 into Jericho, turn left just after the Citgo gas station, immediately before the river. Continue a few yards past the Old Red Mill to the parking area.

Description

Old Mill Park is a 12 acre park located behind the Old Red Mill in Jericho. It features trails along a bubbling stream with huge boulders, waterfalls and pools, a knoll wooded with white pine and hemlocks and unusual rock formations. Parts of the trail are steep. Dogs are welcome ON LEASH ONLY. No bikes allowed within the park. Open daily to the public from dawn to dusk.

The Hilltop Loop is a little more than a 0.5 mile hiking trail that begins along the edge of the Browns River. As it follows the river's edge, it winds up the hill through the pines and circles through a stand of hemlocks on the hill's crest. The main trail has two spur trails, Pine Trail and Beaver Pond Trail, that lead to intimate views of the park's beautiful scenery.

Amenities include parking, information board, trails, scenic views, a bridge, a turnstile, picnic tables, and benches.
