    Tohickon Creek Professional Guide

    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "this short loop, one of the few trails open to mountain bikers in Bucks County, is a wonderful ride past some spectacular terrain above Tohickon Creek. The creek gets its name from the Lenni-Lenape Indian word "To-Hick-Hanne," meaning "deer bone creek." To this day, deer and other wildlife are abundant in the area. The creek is very popular with whitewater enthusiasts and offers a very challenging course during times of high water.

    A boat launch is located at the bridge over the creek in Ralph Stover Park. Noted author James A. Michener donated land known as the "High Rocks" to the park system. these shale cliffs above the creek are very popular with rock climbers and offer challenging fifth-class climbing to experienced climbers. Terrain: Singletrack, doubletrack, paved and pack-dirt roads."

    OK for mountain biking early on weekends or middle of the weekedays. Forget it on nice sunny weekends. Lots of hikers that use these trails. You'll need to stop quite a bit to yield the right-of-way. Otherwise nice, albeit, short trails. Surprisingly clean trails and park, compared to Round Valley or the Delaware Canal Paths.

    Great trail, not any extended climbs, but some steep lung and leg-busters. Good technical single and double track. Not for beginners.
