Franklin Chthonics occupies most of two former dairy farms.  Almost everything we describe here is on the main property, including all the structures and ponds, but the adjoining property is actually the larger of the two and has a longer system of roads and trails.  That figure-8-configured system wends its way to the top of a mountain where an abandoned bluestone quarry abides.  The trail system on the main property, however, is much more developed, with a number of subsidiary paths and various sorts of features along the way.  These features include an old farm garbage dump with many rusting artifacts, a rope line for traversing a steep ravine, a bullet-riddled 40’s car with an oak tree growing through it, (possibly) two crude graves marked with rusted scythes, a massive moss “entity”, a yellow platform for viewing sunsets.
