The park conducts tours open to the general public. These ranger-led tours are conducted on the first and third weekends of the month. Reservations are preferred, with tours limited to ten persons. If attendance allows, others will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. For reservations, call the park office. Tours depart from the park's front entrance at 8 a.m. during the summer months and 9 a.m. during the winter months. Special arrangements for clubs, scout groups, school groups, or any group of more than 8 persons is available, depending upon staffing. Please call the park office for more information. The park reserves the right to limit the number of hikers in a tour group or to cancel trips due to weather conditions. For all tours/general hiking in the Franklin Mountains, wear good shoes, preferably hiking boots, weather-appropriate clothing, and travel in pairs. Always bring plenty of water and snacks. Cell phones are advised if available.
the caves were wonderful, however I only got to see the one to your right because of safety reasons. I'm not physically fit, it took me about an hour to get up there and an about 30 minutes back down. but overall it was a beautiful trail that got me into hiking. I'll definitely come back later!
Took our dogs here and they had such a fun time. The hike is a bit challenging. It's not as easy as it seems but it is a short hike. There's a lot of loose gravel and rocks so make sure your shoes have a great grip and protection. The view is amazing and you can deff take great pictures. Plenty of photo opportunity for sure!
Our first hike ever and with a 7 and 9 year old! Very steep and rocky. Extremely hot too! (End of September.) Go early! We crossed a lot of hikers and dogs. A few were turning back and one hiker was carrying his dehydrated puppy-foaming at the mouth. The views are gorgeous though and the kids liked the lizards.
