Frenchmens Bar & Trail Hike

Hike Distance: 5.2 miles      Yearly Hike Distance: 660.9 miles

Elevation Gain: 171 feet      Yearly Elevation Gain: 61514 feet

I’m having to stay close to home this week as we’re expecting visitors this next weekend and it’s weighed heavily on the activity level.

A nice little hike in the Frenchmens Bar area made for quite the nice day.  I wanted to park at Frenchmens Bar but there were no envelopes to leave money for the entrance fee, and I didn’t want to possibly get a ticket.  So, I parked at a location between Vancouver Lake and Frenchmens Bar that doesn’t have a fee.

The water level of the Columbia is still quite high, and I was limited to where I could explore along the beach and trail system.  It really wasn’t very restrictive and resulted in a wonderful short hike.
