The Centennial Trail French Creek Trailhead serves as the starting point and is located on the eastern end of the French Creek Horse Camp. Take Custer State Park Road #4 east off of Highway 87 to get to the horse camp. Drive through the horse camp to the trailhead.
This trail is a mix of torn up horse trail, drainage ditch, steep fire road, and gravel. Very little maintenance is done but the signage is acceptable. It serves as a possible ride if you are in the area but don't come from too far to do this one.Thank |
