The northern part of the proposed trail is within the Los Padres National Forest (LNPF) and is part of an existing forest service public trail (the Franklin Trail), which has been removed from public use, but remained in the public trust. The new proposed Franklin Trail would be built as a multi-use trail for hikers, bicyclists, and equestrian uses. The trail would have a natural surface and would be 4-6 feet wide.
