The Town of Franklin offers many seasonal activities and events. Many trails to hike on, lake and streams to canoe on and the New York State owned Buck Pond for camping pleasures.

In the winter, The Town of Franklin offers a whole new experience and beauty. There is Cross Country Skiing and Snow Shoeing through pristine wilderness, snowmobiling on the Corridor Number 7 as well as back country trails, skating at Kate Mountain Park and the list goes on.
