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!
