Franklin Lakes Trail

Sequoia National Park, California

Franklin Lakes Trail Professional Review and Guide

"As in many areas of the park, wildlife is abundant on this trail. It is not unusual to see several of the creatures that call the region home. At the very least, marmots will be present, as they are ubiquitous here. As the trail climbs, Farewell Gap looms ever closer, and the views of its stunning scenery are breathtaking. Tree cover is sparse in this alpine terrain, though many solitary pines grow along some sections of the trail. Snow remains in the canyon until late in the summer, and mule deer routinely graze on the alpine shrubbery."
