Franklin is a small village of approximately 2600 in Delaware County, which is located in the beautiful foothills of the Catskill Mountains. This region of dairy farms and forests and small, quaint towns also offers over 700 miles of streams for fishing and over 11,000 acres of reservoirs and other waterways for boating, canoeing, swimming and other water sports. In addition, there are miles and miles of scenic trails for hiking and mountain biking, including the Catskill Scenic Trail, a 19-mile "Rails to Trails" project that stretches from Grand Gorge in the northern end of the county to Bloomville, in the center of the county. For a more challenging ride, try the Plattekill Mountain Resort located on Route 30. The Catskill Mountains also offers challenging downhill skiing, and snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, ice-skating and more. Or, if you like to golf, Franklin County has several courses that run through scenic woods and ponds or with great views of the mountains. The region's rural heritage is celebrated year round with festivals, county fairs and other special events, and roadside stands and farm markets are full of fresh produce, eggs, apple cider, pumpkins and fresh maple syrup. Historic sites, such as a vintage train ride or a working saw mill give visitors a glimpse of bygone days and Franklin, as well as other nearby villages, offers unique shopping, antique stores and cozy restaurants.
