my wife and i went today and it was simply beautiful. beautiful day to be on top of the rock. we climbed to the top hung our feet off the edge and ate lunch while overlooking the forest below. hawks flying directly in front of us made for the perfect setting for a picnic in the sky. if you haven't been to this place yet GO GO GO GO! you wont be disappointed. easy trails. plenty of room for kids to play and pets. just be safe on the drive up. the roads get very narrow with alot of turns!..be safe take your family and enjoy the beauty this place has to offer...and please...clean up after yourselfs. " you pack it in...you pack it out"..dont ruin it for the rest of us....be safe!

Born and raised in Plumas County, I can tell you for sure this is a great trail and NOT on private property.
2017 is one of the best years to view the falls due to maximum flow in Indian Creek!
Please respect this place and pack out your trash, etc. Thanks!

Gorgeous views, wonderful hike.
Depending on time of year it can be very windy. Carry plenty of water for the backside as the only access to the lake is a short distance.

Great loop to take. Hiking or Horseback riding from the parking area at Bucks summit. Following the PCT to Spanish Peak Lookout. (Great place to have lunch) The View is awesome up there. Take plenty of photos. The continue back to the PCT continuing north bound to the Right Hand Creek trail.
This is a nice trail the few people use. This trail crosses Right Hand Creek trail a few times. It has plenty of switch backs coming down to Bucks Lake intersecting the Mill Creek trail. If riding horseback be careful here the upper crossings are NOT horse friendly instead of taking the first trail to the left .. go to the right take the lower trail then turn back left and cross closer to the lake out of the big bolders which is much safer. Beautiful ride or hike

What a beautiful trail which follows along the shore line most of the way. Right hand creek crossing is good for hikers to cross but not for horseback riders. If Im riding i drop back down the trail and use the lower crossing in the creek where the rocks are smaller with a gravel base. This section needs to have some branches cut back but you can cross here safely with horses. Note: if the lake is full it will make it harder to see or to cross this section until later in the summer. However if you do cross you will come out just a few yards from Right Hand Creek trail that leads to Bucks Summit. If you continue along the lake it will take you to Mill Creek where again you will have a creek crossing, follow the trail on the other side to mill Creek campground or turn right uphill continuing your trip on the mill creek trail to the PCT / Tree Lakes. Beautiful country with few people on the trail.

went the counter-clockwise route and it was so worth it! beautiful hike with places to stop and take in the views. i encountered other people but had most of the hike to myself. definitely recommend this loop if you stay in the area!

This is a really pretty hike

Beautiful little hike, somewhat steep but short. Lots of people bring dogs so a leash is necessary. Great swimming hole in the summer, but quite popular. No facilities, so plan ahead.... And plan to pack out any trash you bring in as well.

Steep but well maintained. This trail takes you through a beautiful section of the Plumas National Forest. At the top you get a very rewarding view. I recommend hiking early in the morning as several sections of the trail do not offer much shade when the sun is high in the sky. This hike is fairly difficult because of the steep grade, but don't let that discourage you. It is worthwhile.
