Added by Jean-Claude Linossi

Moderate trail in the Franklin Mountains with very good views of the west flanks of the mountains. Abundance of wildflowers in the summer.

Hike both trails and enjoy some very good views of the Franklin Mountains and the abundance of wildflowers particularly at the end of the summer. In the fall, enjoy the many beautiful grasses. The trails are not too steep  but long and are a pleasure to hike in sections. Bikers would not have any problems biking the whole length of the trails. Here is a map of Franklin Mountains.
