The French Creek Canyon trail on the northern end begins at around 10,500ft via the Tipple trail #293. There is also a spur from the Lake Marie parking area south of WY 130. The trail goes steadily downhill and passes through open meadows and spruce-pine forest. It winds along French Creek and passes Sunshine Falls. The trail crosses a tributary of French Creek the bridge. The upper end of the trail can be steep and loose. The trail will eventually end at FR 236, and FR 236 connects to FR 225. You could connect to Tie Hack Trail for a longer ride. Otherwise, turn around and ride back up. Alternatively, start at the bottom trailhead on FR 236 and ride up, then back down. There a few signed intersections with trails to other parts of the Medicine Bow Peaks area. 5.3 miles one way, or 10.6 miles out-and-back.
