Waterfall
“If you’re the type of person who likes some ‘bang for your buck’, then Franklin Falls is the hike for you. The two-mile hike (round trip) is perfect for children and families and the falls at the end of the trail is very impressive. When the water levels are lower you can walk to the base of the falls. The cool spray is much welcomed on a sunny summer day! Distance: 2.0 mile Elevation Gain: 400 ft. Season: Summer - Fall”
