This loop hike through Frick Park involves only a few hills and will allow you to see the tiny Hot Dog Dam, an even smaller pond, and, if you’re lucky, people playing lawn bowling at the only site in Pennsylvania where that game still goes on. Expect to see lots of people and dogs, too. Many hikes take you through areas of solitude. That’s not the case here. Frick Park is always busy with a multicultural crowd of joggers, lawn bowlers, bicyclists, high school cross-country runners, and skiers. This hike begins on the South Clayton Loop Trail near Frick Environmental Center. It’s not marked, but if you walk to the end of the parking area, keeping the composting area and Meadow Trail on your left, you’ll find it by a water fountain.
