This trail is not anywhere close to Nevada City. It is in Yuba Gap off of Hwy 20 and Bowman Lake Rd just off of I80. I just hiked this a few weeks ago. Beautiful place and lots of small lakes. Park at the Lindsey Lake Campground and hike back by following the gravel road past the steal guard gate. Lots of branched off trails from there and great scenery. Im up there every chance I get. Carr Lake and Feeley Lake are just a mile away plus Grouse Ridge and the old rangers lookout and campground there too. Tons of hiking in the local area. Lots of adventure along with a local waterfall that is 500ft or so high next to Fuller Lake which you drive by on the way there which is also part of the Spaulding Lake Trail.

Used this as the first and last leg of a loop down to Penner and Island lakes, up through the Grouse Ridge Trail. This trail has very doable ups and downs, lovely lake views, and beautiful wildflower meadows. Bring plenty of bug spray if you stay at Lower Rock Lake—buzz buzz.

Backpacked into Rock lakes from Lindsay lake. The trail is a fairly good 4x4 road to Lower Rock lake. Easy hiking with slow uphill grade. Lots of water and lakes. Beautiful scenery once on top. We went in Mid May and there was still a little snow around. Strong winds and one night we got lots of thunderstorms and hail. Lots of camping options in this area.

Was a most awesome hike, and the perfect weather to do it. Most interesting yo find out that all the campsites beyond the gate at Lindsey campgrounds on up past Rock Lakes are free to stay at. Many of the sites are overlooking the Lakes and shaded!

Started from Bowman Road, so ended up waking mostly on a gravel road, through a campground and past a couple homes. The middle mile, at the lakes, was much better and off the road. About 1/3 of the way was shaded, and the flies were terrible. I probably won't do this trail again, but might make my way to the lakes via some of the other trails in the area.
