The trail parallels the West Fork of French Cabin Creek to its headwaters and junction with the Kachess Ridge trail. The trail itself starts at the end of FS road 4308-132, but that road is officially closed half a mile earlier.
The trail shares its first few feet with an abandoned road, but quickly becomes single track with old-growth trees sheltering it from the sun. A half a mile from the trailhead, the trail briefly leaves the trees and provides views down the French Cabin Creek valley.
Blueberries begin appearing in this area, but don't really become widespread until near the end of the trail. It's in the formerly clearcut a quarter-mile before the junction with the Kachess Ridge trail that the berries are everywhere.
At the end of the short trail you can turn north and hike for three miles to Thorp Mountain with its lake and lookout, or south half a mile to a pass between stone towers and views into the Silver Creek valley.
WTA Pro Tip: Do this hike one-way with the Kachess Ridge trail and French Cabin Mountain for a nine-mile shuttle hike.
