Franklin Mountain State Park 

 

Anthony is a great access point to continue on, or take a break from, a lot of the trails that wrap around the Franklin Mountain State Park. By offering cyclist and hikers an opportunity to get off the trail and enjoy some food, take a break in the shade, and restock on water,  access from this side of town is ideal for park goers and Anthony Residents to go and enjoy natural outdoor activities. Part of Anthony’s future plan is to work closely with Franklin Mountain State Park to create another point of access to the trail areas east of Anthony, TX.
