I recently hiked Frenchman Mountain on the east side of town. It’s commonly referred to as Sunrise Mountain, but that’s not it’s official name. The hike itself was pretty brutal. It’s not terribly long–2 miles maybe–but it features two of the steepest trails I’ve yet to climb. It starts with a pretty brutal grade until you reach a false peak about halfway along. From there it drops down into a saddle followed by another really steep gradient up to the peak. Brutal. It’s been five days since I hiked it and my calves are just barely recovered.
