Urban mountain bike routes are not easy to find, especially in a dense, heavily developed city such as Los Angeles. Trails are often restricted to foot traffic only, as is the case in some of L.A.’s parks (such as Griffith Park). Franklin Canyon Park is an exception—a bit of an oasis affording a pleasant and popular respite amid Los Angeles’ urbanization. Franklin Canyon Park is located in the lower, south- side slopes of the Santa Monica Mountains, making it easily accessible from Beverly Hills, Hollywood, and central L.A. Its accessibility to Hollywood is evident in the staggering number of TV shows and films that have been shot here.
