Tortoise and Hare Hike
October 8, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
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 gently downhill on the Flynn Trail back to the trailhead. .
Pick the hike length that best fits your ability. We’ll try to arrive back at the trailhead at the same time! Trail surface includes rocky terrain with some tree roots along the way.
