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.

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.
