Hiking With Dean Message Board Group Main Forum › Franklin Canyon Parking

Franklin Canyon Parking

Group Organizer
Canoga Park, CA
Post #: 340
For newbies to Franklin Canyon parking can be confusing -- there are 5 parking areas. So here are some tips and instructions for Saturday's hike. We will be meeting in the lot at the end of Lake Dr near the big lawn. If you must park at another lot (and many of you will), stroll down to meeting place.

Please read the directions to trailhead in hike description, click on the venue name for Google Map and examine the maps and illustrations I posted in Photo Album. We will be meeting in the southern most parking lot at the southern end of Lake Dr.

After getting onto Lake Dr you will pass two small lots. The first one is by the Franklin Cyn Dr stop sign across from an old house that was once used by DWP staff.

Keep driving (or park and walk the rest of the way. It can also be used for overflow if main lot is full).

Farther down you will pass this sign next to another small lot:

Keep on driving (or park and walk the rest of the way. It can also be used for overflow if main lot is full)

You will soon reach the third (or fifth if coming from Valley) parking area and our meeting place.

There is a parking spot for a bus -- please perpendicular park the cars in that space, there won't be any buses. See my red hash marks in picture above.

Restrooms and water is available.

Parking in any one parking lot is limited so please carpool as much as possible.
