This park may experience temporary closures. Please check the following site for more information: https://www.dcnr.pa.gov/StateParks/FindAPark/NockamixonStatePark/Pages/default.aspx NOTE: Part of this trail is on a trail in a hunting region. Remember to wear your florescent orange. Nockamixon Park is 5,286-acres big featuring a 1,450-acre Lake great for canoeing, kayaking, or fishing. The lake is open to boating and fishing 24 hours a day and the park is open sunrise to sunset. The park has a good amount of attractions and can be slightly crowded in the summer near the more public areas. the park does not allow swimming in the lake but does offer use of the pool. Perhaps one of the greatest trails is the new mountain biking trail off of Tower road. While the trail is still considered to be under construction by Valley Mountain Bikers it is typically open (except for extreme weather). The trail is approximately 8.5 miles featuring varying degrees of difficulty. Depending on the bikers skill level it can take almost 3 hours to complete the whole loop but most bikers with a hand full of trails under their belt can get it done in under 2 hours.

What a great solo hike I had on this trail today, with all the recent rain, mud was expected but not too bad if you just watched where you put your feet, loved the creek crossings, waterfalls and lake views

I really enjoyed this trail. It was quite muddy in spots, but didn't take away from the trail.

Did this trail in the fall. Very nice scenery. The lake is really nice. Can get muddy in spots but overall worth it.

For the most part the woods are nothing but sticker bushes and all you can see is down the trail.

mud. just so much mud. like an exorbitant amount of mud. be prepared with either waterproof boots or some decent trail runners and wool socks and accept your fate. otherwise a very nice trail. but honestly the mud made it kind of fun. we went counterclockwise and came back on the trail next to the lake. we also added part of the quarry trail for some extra mileage. the creek crossing isn't bad - theres plenty of rocks to use to cross right to the left of it. the waterfall was very pretty and made all the mud semi worth it.
