“A tough but beautiful up and down trail easily accessible off the 199.”— Bob Durie
Also note that the trailhead is not marked on the other side where it meets French Road.
The trail is listed in the Smith River National Recreation Area as being 2.8 miles each direction, and there are two trees marked with a 1 and 2 respectively indicating the mile markers.
If you're looking for a fun jaunt up the French Hill with occasional views of the Smith Valley and Gasquet, then this is it.
