Pick the length that suits YOU!
Frick Pond Trailhead, Mongaup State Park
This woodland hike offers two choices, so both beginner and intermediate hikers can join in. “Tortoises” will enjoy a 2.2-mile loop around scenic Frick Pond, and the “Hares” will enjoy a brisk 4.1 mile hike.
Both groups will head out together; then the Hares veer off halfway around Frick Pond, at the intersection known as “Times Square,” for 1 mile uphill on Big Rock Trail, followed by 1.7 miles of gentle downhill on the Flynn Trail back to the trailhead. We’ll try to arrive back at the trailhead at the same time!
Pick the hike length that best fits your ability.
