About Franklin Canyon Group Hike Tour

Located in the geographic center of Los Angeles, just minutes away from Beverly Hills, few hikes offer a better combination of natural beauty and historical significance than the trails at Franklin Canyon.

The park traces its beginnings to 1914 when William Mulholland and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power built a reservoir in upper Franklin Canyon. The family of oil baron Edward L. Doheny used the canyon as a summer retreat and a place to graze and water their cattle. The park has been used frequently for filming and was featured in the opening credits to “The Andy Griffith Show.”

Within the park boundaries are chaparral, grasslands, oak woodlands, a three-acre lake, a duck pond, expansive picnic grounds, and over five miles of LA hiking trails. The lake and pond serve as permanent and seasonal home for birds in the Pacific flyway. This hidden oasis, just 10 minutes from downtown Beverly Hills makes a perfect hiking experience for any group.
