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 an 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 (though there are many) is the new mountain biking trail off of Tower road. While the trail is still considered to be under construction by Valley Mountain Bikers (the club responsible for building this awesome trail) 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.

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.

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 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.
