The 5,286-acre Nockamixon State Park is in the rolling hills of scenic Bucks County, close enough to Philadelphia for a day trip, but far enough away for a vacation. Tohickon Creek, Three Mile Run and Haycock Run feed the 1,450-acre Lake Nockamixon, which is a rest stop for migrating waterfowl and a destination for boaters and anglers. Visitors can stay the night in a cabin or enjoy the many activities of the park for the day. Popular activities are picnicking, visiting the pool, hiking, biking and boating.
Great for biking, not so much for hiking.
Path is very narrow, and everything from the obstacles to bumps in the road indicate it was for cyclists. Everyone was nice but all but one person was a cyclist and I started to feel like I was in their way.
Apart from feeling out of place the trail was incredibly beautiful, almost entirely in the woods and shaded, and easy to follow. I won't be walking it again but if I ever get comfortable doing off-road biking I will certainly be back. Highly recommend this one to cyclists.
We group of 5 initially planned to go to Franklin Parker Preserve. But due to the weather, we had to change our plans. And i am glad we picked Nockamixon. Its one and half hr drive from jersey city. Though the Park office were closed on weekend the Rangers were very helpful in guiding us the way to trail.
Even though everyone are beginners in our group, we were able to complete Coldspot and Hammer trail (total of 4 miles) in 1 and half hour. The climate was just right neither cold not hot. We saw only a couple of bikers on the hike other than them there were no one else. But there were lot of flies in the woods. make sure to take insect repellent when you go. Keep some water for hydration and few snacks. Overall it was a good trip and we enjoyed a lot.
