Haycock Mt

Average Rating:    (1.67 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

Short steady climb (approx. 1.5 miles); single track and rooty. Final ascent to the top of Haycock Mt takes a bit of boulder hopping (on foot). Best time of the year to ride this short trail is in the spring at dawn; if you make it to the top in time, you can watch the sunrise over Lake Nockamixen.

Summary:
I am at school here in PA and discovered this trail while driving. It is a beautiful area. I am more of a freerider/urban rider, but the trails here were tons of fun , you can just hop the logs and rocks. There are some great decents.

Recommended Route:
611 to 313 to 563

Summary:
After the gate you go through a small stream which crosses the fire road. The grass fire road to the water tower was bike ridable. The trail which is not for bike riding must be done on foot because you go over and under fallen timber, also you must climb over rocks. The trail to the top takes a left turn just before the green water tower. Follow the red-blazes. They are attached to trees. Also a timber type walkway guides you. There are some large boulders to see and climb on. Return the way you came or you may get lost. A note: this is adjacent to state gamelands.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Nearby Lake Nockamixon off of Route 563 offers both paved and off road trails which are great for biking, hiking and bird watching. Parts of the lake property where some good trails exist are in hunting areas.

Summary:
I attempted this trail on 03/27/00 and after the water tower the trail was unrecognizeable. Apparently a logging company was up there with heavy equipment movung trees because the trail is impassable. That sucks because the grassy fire road on the way up was fun.

Recommended Route:
The road is Saw Mill Rd not Swamp asstated in the review.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
High Rocks
