French's Mountain is located just north of the Belgrade Lakes. From route 27 turn onto Watson Pond Road, parking can be found on the side of the road, at a small turnout. The cache is located on French's Mountain Trail. The trail, and surrounding area is under the stewardship of the Belgrade Regional Conservation Alliance. Nestled between these hills and pristine streams, are acres of wetlands and five undeveloped ponds which glimmer in the sunlight like gems in a crown. This region encompasses more than 6,100 acres and is known as the Kennebec Highlands. The trail is short but somewhat steep to the summit, with an elevation gain of around 150'. You will be rewarded by beautiful views at the summit, of the surrounding lakes and ponds. Be careful as the trail can be muddy and slippery in cold weather.
Caution there are extremely steep and dangerous cliffs at the top
Cache is a medium sized ammo can hidden away from the summit and the dangerous cliffs. Enjoy the views, bring the family and a picnic lunch. Thanks to Haffy for placing this cache in such a beautiful area.
