Starting on a shelf at the edge of the Columbia River, head east on an old jeep track. Closed to motorized travel, it’s obvious from the tire tracks that scofflaws can’t read or don’t care about this regulation meant to protect this fragile environment. Managed by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, Frenchman Coulee is part of the multiunit 192,000-acre Columbia Basin Wildlife Area, consisting of outstanding sagebrush-steppe ecosystems, including the nearby Ancient and Dusty Lakes. A popular hunting area, be sure to don orange when hiking here in the fall.
