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.

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.
