Franklin Lakes Professional Review and Guide
"Scores of hikers and backpackers travel the popular Franklin Lakes Trail to access the picturesque lakes, cradled in a dramatic cirque beneath the Great Western Divide. As with most trails in the Mineral King area, this one climbs steadily out of the valley. Rainbow-colored metamorphic rock in Farewell and Franklin Canyons provides optical delights during the stiff ascent to the lakes."
