Trail was lovely, originally went up the wrong one which I instantly knew wasn't this one cause it didn't have water and went straight up and was very exposed and dry. But luckily wasn't far from this trail so once we got here it was a nice scenic break. Lots of little animals in the introduction to the trail and lots of coverage, I'll definitely come here again. Only thing is it's not as difficult as I usually like my hikes to be, but if I want an easy hike this will be it.
We enjoyed it! The trails aren't marked very well, so not sure we did the exact Franklin Canyon trail, but had a nice hike nonetheless. It's not super crowded, and you can meander through the trails without really worrying about getting lost. The ducks and turtles at Heavenly Pond were cool to look at on the bench under the trees. They were very social so clearly they'd been fed before. Overall a great hike! I'd explore there again!
Easy, short hike. Most should be able to do this, but there is a section with stairs. The lake is okay to look at, but the turtles and ducks are the stars of this hike (near the end by a park bench). Would do again, especially to revisit turtles or to take friends.
Amazing!!! Lovely treasure hidden from the city. There are multiple trails. Be cautious we have seen rattle snakes and coyotes. Lots of picture opportunities. The lake has been used for many television shows over the years. Obey traffic signs - camera enforced stop signs. STOP tickets are $100
Great hike for all ages 3 to 103!
