Frick Park - Tranquil Trail
Tranquil trail is an easy and well maintained 1.1 mi. out and back trail through the heart of Frick Park. The parking area for the trail head can be found at the bottom of Frick Lane, a windy rode off of Hutchinson Street. There is a port-a-potty about .25 miles from the trailhead. The trail head begins at the end of the parking lot by the soccer field. This walk takes you alongside Fern Hollow Creek from Lower Frick Park to the Homewood cemetery/Point Breeze neighborhood. There is a bench or picnic table every 100 meters or less. This graded trail is mostly flat until the end where it becomes inclined about 1 mile in until you reach Homewood Cemetery and Reynolds St. You can choose to turn around at any point or arrange to be picked up at the end by the Frick Museum. The babbling creek creates a tranquil environment for this immersive and easy walk through the valley of Frick Park. This trail is alongside a creek and should be avoided if there has been heavy rainfall in the area.
