Description

The French Trail connects the West Side Trail with the Northwest Trail. At approximately 0.3 miles, this short trail can be used to connect from the West Side Trail to other trails along the west side and northern areas of the park.

Beginning at the park headquarters, the easiest way to access the French Trail is by running the West Side Trail. At about 0.5 miles, you'll reach an intersection with the French Trail beginning on your left. White plates on trees blaze the trail. Although the trail is generally easy to follow as it progresses up a rocky path, the trail markers are not numerous. You may also spot blue triangular blazes that indicate this is part of the regional Bay Circuit Trail.

After a right turn at approximately 0.25 miles, a descent brings you to an intersection with the Northwest Trail. Turn right to descend down a rocky path to the Pond Walk, or bear left to continue on the Northwest Trail and connect with other trails such as the Granite Hills Trail (Upper Loop).

The trail is generally easy to traverse with no significant inclines or declines. Rocky terrain and tree roots are common on these trails.
