Yankee Mountain Trail #3318 is a most difficult 3.7 mile hike at an elevation of 1,840 feet. This trial is recommended for the most experienced hiker to use their wilderness skills. This trail is not recommended for backpackers and horses because of trail conditions and lack of water. The trail is deliberately not maintained so hikers can have an alternative to the usual wide, smooth, and obvious routes. A good hike for day hikers. There are various size logs down and in spot the trail is very brushy. The higher you hike the more scenic the trail becomes. This trail overlooks the French Pete Valley. The last portion of the trail is not locatable just so hikers can use map and compass skills.

Directions: From Blue River, Travel east on Hwy. #126 for 4 miles and turn right onto Rd. 19 (Aufderheide Forest Drive). Proceed 11 miles to the French Pete Trailhead parking lot. The trailhead is at the beginning of the parking lot.
