Length: Approx. 6-15 miles
Trail Type: Single track
Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced
Trail Description:

There are a variety of trails throughout the rolling wooded terrain in this 280 acre park. The intertwining trails are twisty, turny and challenging, including 1 to 2 miles of short climbs, some steep climbs and ascents, and some fun along the streambed. One trail goes along a cliff by the river, so be careful not to fall in.

Al Stoller reported on 10-28-2011: Franke Park is now marked, has been mapped, and has new trails for more advanced riders.
