Franklin was a significant mining town in the 1800s, but no more. All that remains are foundations, a cemetery, some artifacts, and bits of coal everywhere. Be careful as you explore - the primary mine opening is covered but there are others in the area that may not be covered. You could step into one if you're not watching. On your way to the cemetery, toss a rock in the mine shaft and listen for how long it takes to hit the bottom. It will take a L-O-N-G time!
Sadly, the townsite was raped and pillaged by loggers in the fall of 2007. Many of the artifacts were buried by bulldozers, and loss of the tree canopy has allowed the blackberries to run rampant. The original container for this cache fell victim too. Mercifully, the feature at the hide location survived and the cache was resurrected.
Parking at the trailhead is a bit unfriendly but you can park farther down the road. I have included coordinates of a pullout in the waypoints. The trail will take you all the way to the vicinity of the cache. Don't worry about the NO TRESPASSING signs near the trailhead. They refer to the area beyond the trail, which is private property. Stay on the trail and you'll be fine.
Please rehide the cache completely and securely to protect it from muggles!
