Hike through a boulder-rich, wooded area along the Tohickon Creek from Weisel Hostel to the Sterner Mill Trail

Ryan Schott

Features Fall Colors · Fishing · River/Creek · Views

Area is open to hunters during hunting season and is adjacent to an active game land. This trail used to connect the Sterner Mill Trail to the Quarry Trail, but the connecting segment is now closed with permanent signage stating "No Outlet"

Description

This hike takes you from the Weisel Hostel through a beautiful rocky forest consisting of deciduous and evergreen trees. There are excellent, elevated views of both the Tohickon Creek and Lake Nockamixon. Trail passes under the high bridge over 563 where fishermen often line the banks of the Tohickon Creek. Trail connects to the Sterner Mill Trail area.
