Wanting a good walk on a rainy day we took this trail, it was muddy, with many puddles to navigate, but not really surprising, considering it was raining! Generally a trail for riding horses.

I wished we would have taken more time to hike the creek. Bring a map and plenty of water. Enjoy the scenery.

Just a brief stop for pictures of the creek and bridge. Had a restroom and a sign describing the area's history. Good place to stretch your legs.

Despite a very dry spring in the area the creek still had some water in it! Great area to explore and hike around!

First, let me say that fishing this creek is a major activity there. For me,since I spend so much time on back roads in the general Custer area, I have seen a lot of French Creek. In some places it nearly disappears and in others,...More

This campground is our first pick when staying in the Hills. The campground is great for exploring and there are lots of things to see and do. A general store and restaurant are within walking distance.
