It is possible to ford french creek with a high-clearance vehicle even though the bridge is out. The limiting factor is going down to and coming back up from the creekbed, not the actual crossing itself (which was about 4-5" max today). A skilled 2wd car driver may be able to make it to the creek on FS 727, but it is definitely rougher than the other roads. Subarus should be OK fording with care. The mileages in Roach‘s books seem to be high by two or three tenths.
