The trail made its way past two small caves; they are in actuality rock shelters.
The views got even better and the trail climbed some steep cliffs using chains bolted into the rock.
Soon the Ron Coleman Trail would bypass the summit of South Franklin Peak. Since my objective was to summit the mighty peak, I set off sans trail and followed a lightly-used social trail to the fenced-in summit. I admired the view for a bit and then retraced my steps back to McKelligon Canyon and my car.
