6B Wednesday, Aug. 12, 2015 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter ance Frazier Falls dried up early this year and Beckwourth District Ranger Deb Bumpus is taking full advantage of the situation. "We're going to accomplish some much needed maintenance, including widening and repaving the trail," she said, adding that, "the trail would be closing soon for a few weeks to accommodate the work." Additional work is also occurring on the Lake Davis trail with another 2 miles of trail being added, thanks to a Secure Rural Schools funding match and the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship volunteers. With the 2-mile addition, the trail will now total 7 miles. Sections of the trail have been adopted by the Portola Rotary Club, the City of Portola and the stewardship group. The non-motorized trail is open to hikers, bicyclists and horseback riders. Call the Beckwourth Ranger District at 836-2575 for information about other recreation and volunteer opportunities in the area. Frenchman Lake improvements begin A new water system is being installed in the Frenchman Lake campground, boat ramp and picnic area, necessitating a closure of those facilities. The Frenchman Lake boat ramp had recently been closed due to extremely low water conditions. Frenchman Lake is located near Portola within the Plumas National Forest. While there are no boat launch facilities at this time, campgrounds are available at the lake. Spring Creek campground will remain open until construction is completed and Frenchman Lake reopens its facilities later this fall. Frenchman campground is the only campground left open, year-round, with no services or fees, at Frenchman Lake. Boat handling docks are available at other nearby lakes. Call the Beckwourth Ranger District at 836-2575 or visit for more information. Join the thousands of child care centers and family child care providers already reaping the benefits of CACFP!
