Frick's Trail Description

Not to be confused with the well-known Frick Park across the state in Pittsburgh, the 1.5-mile Frick's Trail is among the newest link in a system of multi-use trails being developed in the suburbs north of Philadelphia.

Located in Hatfield Twp. in eastern Montgomery County, the trail begins at Sterling Drive just north of the School Road Park and extends southeast through an area of open space to Orvilla Road. Following a short on-street concurrency through a development via Independence Way and Downing Drive, the trail resumes off Downing Drive and heads southeast, past a restored wetland into the forest. This portion parallels a creek and a series of concrete "stepping stones" connects the path to the nearby historic Frick's Meetinghouse and cemetery.
The trail's eastern terminus is at a well-marked trailhead off Line Lexington Road. In addition to beautiful scenery, the Frick's Trail connects several communities and developments and provides a non-motorized link to nearby Hatfield borough via the Chestnut Street Trail, to which it connects in School Road Park.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at School Road Park and at the eastern trailhead off Line Lexington Road.

Frick's Trail Reviews

peaceful and scenic

I live fairly close to the trail, and I decided to finally walk it, it was truly beautiful and they have off-trails into a pond and a gazebo. I love it

it’s been paved

As of Aug 2023, Frick’s Trail has been fully paved. This is a very nice trail, half shady, half sunny. Two portions are connected by sidewalk thru a residential neighborhood. Mostly flat, one hill at the School Road Park end, but not bad. Be careful crossing Orvilla Road.

scenic but very rough ride

First some corrections to the map of the trail. The trail starts just north of the bridge over a small stream on Sterling Drive. Then it crosses Orvilla Road at Independence Way. (You can see these on the street level views). The trail is very rough, i would have given it a one star rating except for the scenery. We combined riding the Liberty Bell Trail, the Chestnut Street Trail and the Frick's Trail, together they totaled about 7 miles. We turned before crossing the creek and rode thru a park before finding our way back to the trail so I'm not sure of the exact mileage.
