Frenchman’s Bar and Trail Hike

Hike Distance: 6.5 miles

Elevation Gain: 134 feet

I had forgotten that some of the Clark County parks were going to start charging $3/day for parking, and didn’t have dollar bills.  I ended up parking in a location next to the Vancouver Lake boating club, and then walking on the Frenchmen’s Bar Trail to the bar itself.  The Columbia River water level had receded a bit so there was actually more beach on which to walk.  The occasional rain shower blew over me but I was well prepared and rather enjoyed it.  Very few people on the trail, as expected on a weekday.
