Nice 1.3 mile trail from the outskirts of Franklin (Johnstown) to the Staple Bend Tunnel Trail, joining that trail right at the historic tunnel. Well maintained, only a mild incline near the end, benches and historic informational signs along the way, and a picnic table on the other side of the tunnel. Great for walking with kids or pets. 2.6 miles total to the tunnel and back, or 3.5 miles one way from this trail head to the parking lot at the far end of Staple Bend Tunnel Trail.
