Hike Franklin Ghost Town

Black Diamond, Washington

Description

Added by Ragen Derrick

Easy-Moderate hikes to beautiful swimming holes and water falls. Cliff Jumping & Rope Swing.

Visited here in August and the water was possibly the coldest I've ever swam in. A great half-day trip as the hikes are easy and the spots are quick to get to. The falls are located just to side of the road with a couple of different places to park. There's a $5 or $10 entrance/parking fee. A great spot to hangout and swim. There's a few cliffs to jump from at your own risk and a rope swing. The falls are beautiful, but you'll only get a real view if you swim around the rocks as that's where the path will end - or - you can make your way to the rocks a bit further out, if you prefer not to get wet, where you'll also have a great view and a perfect photo op.
