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 mountain bike trail at the end of Tower Road off of 611.

easy hike, nice view of lake.

easy hike. Trail loops for 5 miles. It's also used as a biking trail.

This trail is mainly used for cyclists so you have to be on the lookout if you don't want to get hit. The best part of the trail is when it comes out to the spillway. I always take a detour and walk across to get an awesome view of the lake.

The walk along the lake side is shaded, the other side is pretty sunny( bring sunscreen) Starts off paved, then leads into the forested trails.

The lake view was pleasant. Trail path was quaint and easy. The trail didn't have any major challenges. This trail is fun for little ones and dogs. We hiked along Elephant, Church and Mink trail which pretty much connects with each other. Did not get to hike the trails across the lake though. Rented cabin for the weekend. Beautiful in the fall.

Great with my dog. We were not prepared for creek crossing today, so we did small loop twice. Have enjoyed on horseback, as well. Can be muddy.

Nice trail, relatively easy though. Very limited parking at the trail head based on direction from all trails. Parked in lot 2 and had to take a side trail along the lake to get to the trail head. Trail is wide and horses use it, so watch out for the "biscuits". It was also muddy in quite a few spots. If you go after it rains, your gonna get very muddy.

This was a really nice, well-defined trail. We did it with our two dogs after doing Haycock Mtn first. We will be back to test out more of this trail.

This park is great for easy, beginning hikers. It is beautiful during all seasons, especially the autumn. Grab a map and do all the various trails they have (they have way more trails than the loop listed here :D). WARNING: Check for ticks, especially if taking your kanine friend! I pulled off 5 ticks just from my dogs head on the car ride home! GREAT PLACE FOR beginner KAYAKING :)

I've been coming to Nocamixon my whole life as it was a tradition for my dad and his dad that he passed on to share with me. I have done this beautiful trail many of times and each time gets more beautiful. Very peaceful.

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.

Easy and enjoyable. Nice woods, waterfall. I gave it a 4 because it was a little muddy and slippery in places.
