Easy hike along French Pete Creek, through old growth timber. The French Pete Creek trail is in an old-growth forest valley in the Three Sisters Wilderness. French Pete Creek flows beside the trail. The forest is made of gargantuan Douglas firs and 1000-year-old cedars.
Lovely old growth that is well maintained and out of the way. There is a paved parking area that is just across the French Pete Campground, highly recommended.
Great old growth! The bridge washed out about 5 miles in years ago and they never replaced it, so the hike is not that long. Great flowers in the spring.
