      You are invited to join a Tortoise and Hare Hike in nearby Mongaup State Park, in celebration of the 16th annual Catskills Lark in the 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 scamper, with a little more uphill. Pick the hike that best fits your ability. The trail surface includes rocky terrain and some beautiful old pathways through the woods.
