Franklin Greenway Trail Description

The Franklin Greenway Trail (also known as the Franklin Historic Trail) is 3.4 miles of paths threading through Franklin’s parks while connecting community amenities such as schools, community centers and the Franklin college campus.The trail is paved and off-road for most of its length although there are a number of street crossings.

The trail begins on Creekwood Lane between Story and Woodfield drives and initially goes south before curving widely and heading east. Tangential to the bend is a loop of trail, but there is a branch that avoids the loop and continues towards Blue Heron Park and Wetland, with its kaleidoscope of wildflowers.  The pathway ducks under US 31 and skirts the perimeter of the Franklin Greenlawn Cemetery before it begins to follow the course of Young’s Creek. Across S. Main St. and the bridge over Young’s Creek, the trail takes you to Province Park. After E. Monroe St. the trail starts to parallel another waterway, Hurricane Creek. Passing near the Boys and Girls Club, the path passes through the open grassland and riparian woodland of Morgan Park. The trail ends along E 100 N.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at Blue Heron Park and Wetland (405 Driftwood Ct) and Province Park (389 E. Monroe St.).
