An 8 mile tour of most of Frick Park's singletrack descents

Jason Lampenrider

Overview

Frick Park is a tight network of nicely maintained singletrack and fire road trails shared with hikers. Ample and free street and parking lot parking is available at various locations around the park, including the main free parking lot in Lower Frick (access to this parking lot is off Hutchinson St. at Lancaster Ave. in Regent Square).

While the park is not big, you can easily put in a few hours of trail exploration with minimal repetition. More experienced riders could enjoy repeatedly climbing Falls Ravine Trail fire road from Lower Frick parking lot, then choosing from the various singletrack trails back down. Riders enjoying fire roads will have a nice series of loops in the park as well.

Description

This Ride of three loops maps out four of Frick Park's singletrack descents in the following order:

Iron Gate: a relatively smooth and swooping singletrack, dirt descent with a few exposed roots and tight turns.

Roller Coaster: several swooping and fast mini descents followed by rapid rises. Watch for the nondescript start of the trail off to the left of the fire road. Follow it along, crossing the doubletracks in various places.

Bench Trail: short, tree roots galore.

Bradema: encounter a bit of off-camber trail, log rolls, small exposed tree roots, and a switchback turn, entirely under a canopy of trees.

The loops begin and end at the Lower Frick parking lot and use the Falls Ravine Trail fire road as the main climb. Pick and choose, or do all 3 loops for a fun ride of 8 miles, 1000 feet of vertical, and a great taste of the park's singletrack.
