Yesterday on my trip up to Lake Isabel i kept telling my self, "Your going to sit on your recliner and watch TV."
(Shameless plug. Here and Here Volunteer's needed! )
Well i didn't sit on my recliner and watch TV. After reading janwalker's Boulder river report. I decided to check out French creek road. Found that the previously reported tree was trimmed out.
I have a good idea who trimmed out the tree. Note the chain saw on the back of this pickup.
I was not feeling very ambitious so i did not hike down the Boulder river trail. So i headed back down French creek road. The road has taken a beating. It's full of pot holes. And one culvert it failing. The hole is big enough that if an unwary driver hits it thinking it just another pot hole there going to trash there car!
Both trekking poles are extended equal legenth.
The sink hole
Since it's easy to not see the sink hole I added an entire roll of flagging to mark it's location
What does this have to do with FrenchPoint. Well Frenchpoint is up French creek road. Getting there is simple. Just walk up the second gated road on the right past French Creek CG. The road to Frenchpoint it just before the sink hole. Yep....another off the "beaten" path TR There are views to be had. But in a few years the will be gone, after the trees regrow.
SR 530 below
It's too bad that the FS just does not have truck loads of cash to throw around. If they cleared an acre on the top and dropped a Heybrook style look out there. This would be a popular place for the view. At least i can dream.
Round trip distance just under 2 miles
Elevation gain, an whopping 550 feet.
