Franklin Canyon Hike & Dog Walk
We are so excited to welcome you back to the events you know and love. As our community’s response to Covid-19 continues to evolve, we will too. Any in-person events will include measures to promote safety and prevent the spread of the coronavirus. At this time, we are requiring that you show your vaccination card or a negative Covid-19 test result (taken within 72 hours) at the event. While we can’t wait to be together again, nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our members. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Franklin Canyon Park is a public park located near Benedict Canyon at the eastern end of the Santa Monica Mountains. The park comprises 605 acre, and is located at the purported geographical center of the city of Los Angeles. The park features the infamous 3 acre lake, a duck pond and over five miles of hiking trails. The lake and pond are visited by birds in the Pacific Flyway. Great views, including the canyons and Beverly Hills. Feel free to bring your dogs!
After the hike we will be having lunch at the picnic tables. Guests and family welcome! Lunch will be provided and attendees are welcome to bring outdoor games, such as bocce ball, Frisbee, etc.
Franklin Canyon Site Trail: The 2-mile loop trail around Franklin Canyon Lake is short, easy and perfect for families with small children. There are open vistas across the lake from the dam, dense foliage trails that feel prehistoric, a duck pond and plenty of turtles. While you can begin the hike from any of the numerous parking points around the lake, we will begin at the large dirt lot on the west side of the reservoir.
We will be meeting at the picnic tables at 9 AM and the hike will begin promptly at 9:30 AM.
