Connie thought this whole little town has burned down, from the Carr Fire (2018) but I am still think otherwise. Plan to visit soon and make my updates on this page. French Gulch California is a small, rural mountain community in Northern California. Located on Clear Creek, French Gulch is situated in between two major recreation lakes - Trinity Lake & Whiskeytown Reservoir.

    Small canyon with historic buildings set near 2 large lakes, a river & creeks. Big area for off roaders, due to east access into the backcountry. 2018 Wildfires may have scorched much of the area.
