It’s hard work maintaining trails in the Franklin Park woodlands, but we want you to go hiking! The Appalachian Mountain Club helped the FPC youth crew build a “blazed trail” that is marked with yellow blazes on trees and rocks to help you navigate through the Wilderness, Franklin Park’s largest forest. We hope you’ll go exploring:
To follow the yellow blazes: look for them on trees at eye level or on the rock floor when you’re on a plateau. If you see a double blaze at a fork, go in the direction of the one that’s slightly higher.
All you need to go hiking in Franklin Park is a pair of sneakers and a sense of adventure. There are soaring rock cliffs, winding paths, and occasional signs of woodland animals.
Join FPC’s partner, Hike4Life, to go hiking with a friendly group and learn cool survival and nature facts. Everyone’s welcome!
