Set against the desert foot of the dramatic Sacramento Mountains, this park features historic exhibits and a fully restored 19th century ranch house.
This is an enjoyable hike along the dry river bed with a small stream and the historical cabin ruins of Frenchie. We took this short hike on a March morning before the heat of the day hit. There are a lot of loose rock and overhanging trees that provided much welcome shade. It is a good warm up before you try the much more challenging Dog Canyon trail with very little incline. Beware of the wildlife in the area .
