A short trail through the forested hills of Upper Franklin Canyon.

John McKinney

Overview

Features: Lake [Add/Remove]

Description [Suggest Changes]

Starting from the parking lot for the Snooky Goldman Nature Center, you'll run over a wooden bridge, meet the trail, and follow it up to the nature center.

From here, cross the courtyard and you'll reach the Blinderman Trail. Follow the Blinderman Trail as it bends to the southwest. You'll quickly reach a trail juncture, at which point you'll want to stay to the right. The trail will then continue to the south before reaching another trail juncture, this time with the Franklin Canyon Vista Point Connector. Stay to the right to continue on the Blinderman Trail.

The trail bends to the east before meeting up with the end of the Franklin Canyon Vista Point Connector. From here, the trail turns southward, passes Wild Pond, and enters a eucalyptus grove before turning to the west. You'll quickly reach the end of the trail as it hits Franklin Canyon Drive. You can follow the same route back to the trailhead or return along the roadway.
