    Lake Nockamixon ???

    I'll be visiting Bucks County soon and will have a chance for a ride, so I was thinking about checking out the Nockamixon trails for the first time.... any maps? Trail descriptions? Preferred routes? Any jumps or drops?

    I really enjoy high rocks and neshaminy, but would like to check out what is new if it is worth it.

    Thanks in advance!
    You better just go ahead and drop that seatpost down to the reflector... the trail gets pretty rough down there.

    No jumps or drops, smooth singletrack for most of the trail. A couple of rock armored creek crossings. Some roots and small uphills, no big climbs. A couple of big logovers. Some rocky sections past the access road past the dam. Go counterclockwise from the trailhead. About 7 to 8 miles total so far.

    7-8 miles of smooth singletrack sounds like a nice chance to get out! I'll probably bring the hardtail.

    Cool. Hardtail will be fine. That's what I've been riding there lately.

    Give us a review when you get back.

    +1 on the hardtail. I see guys on 120 front/rear trail bikes and can't help think their overkill for the terrain. To each their own.

    I ride a fs and it is overkill but, if I had a bike for each terrain I'd ride, I would be a very happy man.

    HT 29'er or even static are fine for this trail. Mostly small rocks/roots with nothing sketchy. (IMO)
