Franklin Ghost Town

Follow an old railroad grade on this easy hike along the Green River near Black Diamond, through the history of the 1880's coal-mining ghost town of Franklin. It's an easy walk up to the abandoned and now sealed mineshaft, past a large coal cart bearing the town's name, and on beyond to the powerhouse foundation and cemetery. This is an interesting forested low-land walk that is good year-round and for the whole family.
