French Creek Trail, Oregon

   
The French Creek Trail has been bypassed by logging roads at lower elevations. The trail now starts at about 4000 ft. on the way to Byar's Peak. There are some boulders on the road, one in particular had barely enough room to get by. Great views of Detroit area and Three Sisters from the ridge. Says J. D. Adams

French Creek Trail is 17.8 miles long; it's longer than many backcountry trails. The total elevation difference for French Creek Trail is 4,067 feet which is higher than average. This backcountry walk should take you about 2.5 days, so it's a good thing if your backpack is big enough to do the job. This is a two-ended trail with two trailheads, so if you can get a ride from someone, you can backcountry trek it just one way. Some parts of French Creek Trail are much higher up than other parts of the backcountry trail, and that means that some parts of the backcountry trail could be very different from other parts of it. This is a hiking trail that is quite long, so make sure you bring plenty of supplies.
