French Pete Trail

May 16, 1976

We left in three cars under leaden skies and arrived at our destination in bright sun. Considerable construction work is occurring in and around the trail head. The Forest Service is realigning the first ¼ mile of the trail from a recently paved parking lot. Consequently, this portion required some bushwacking and careful observation of ribbon markers. Soon we were on the main trail and followed French Pete Creek over several well-constructed log bridges with several stops. A new bridge has been constructed at approximately two miles and new portion of the trail built south of the river. Many backpackers and overnight campers were in evidence as we made our way nearly five miles from the trailhead. We ate lunch on the bank of the creek where sun and shade lovers were equally at home. We retraced our steps under increasingly gray skies until a few drops of rain were felt near the end of the trip. Some trilliums and dogwoods were in bloom and spring was in evidence everywhere. Hikers on this pleasant day were, Donna Baker, Bob Capron, Chris Depee, Bobbe Dyer, Jean Eckstrom, Earl Erickson, Tony Jones, Deloris Knapp, Diane Rowe, Pat Skinner, Bob Walden, and Ralph Nafziger, leader.
