Description

This 2.1-mile loop takes you around Franklin Ridge on smooth doubletrack and provides great views of the surrounding hills and strait. The trail can be accessed from various area trails, and along the north side of the ridge you can choose to hike down any one of four spurs that provide some privacy for enjoying the views of the strait. The southern portion of the loop follows a creek up a valley on its way back up to the ridge.

A nice loop around the ridge that provides great views of the hills and the strait. The backside has you follow a creek up the valley to the ridge. 2.1mi
