Nockamixon State Park -Top Rock Trail at Haycock Mountain

Nockamixon State Park -Top Rock Trail at Haycock Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"Haycock Mountain is the highest mountain in Bucks County. This hike is right across the way from the hub of Nockamixon State Park. Though it’s a short hike in distance, it is rugged in that it is a steep climb and involves some bouldering. It will certainly make you feel like a kid again as you scramble over rocks and is great fun for the family. Dogs are allowed, but your four-legged friend may have difficulty completing the entire trail due to the bouldering.

It’s a great idea to pack a lunch or a snack to enjoy when you get to the top because you will likely work up an appetite with the bouldering on the higher portion of the trail."

This is a little challenging, mostly just technical stuff. I hiked here with my nephew and he managed navigating the rocks and boulders without too many issues. Sometimes you just have to climb around and the trail isn't always clear, but you can find it again. There are lots of interesting caves and niches to check out and. We took a lunch and had a fun day.

A nice trail with a beautiful ending up on tabletop. Not long but a perfect clear the head hike with some fun bouldering at the top. Nice vista of lake Nockamixon. The red trail is clearly marked the blue and white are not marked very well.
