090718s-003.jpg Formerly known as Larkin Woods, Franklin Gulf Park is a 637-acre, Erie County-owned, undeveloped park in the Towns of Eden and North Collins.  It is primarily a wooded area that has impressive topography and scenic natural features, such as creeks, ravines, waterfalls and ledge outcroppings.  The topography is dominated by the “gulf,” a steep gorge which is practically inaccessible.  There are a couple of marked trails that take you to the best parts of the park.

Geocaching is a popular activity in the park. See our own series of geocaches we placed in this park.

This photo album is from a couple hikes Frank Jr and I took in the park this past winter and this summer.
