Upper Franklin Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This pleasant hike explores a stretch of the forest not often visited, despite its proximity to Montecito and Santa Barbara, passing Jameson Lake and following a nearly forgotten route along verdant Alder Creek. There is very little shade for the first 3.5 miles along Juncal Road; water (filter or purify) can typically be found at creek crossings."
