Welcome to Bucks Lake
This clear mountain lake is cherished by locals in the know. Surrounded by pine forests, it’s excellent for swimming, fishing and boating. It’s about 17 miles southwest of Quincy, via the white-knuckle roads of Bucks Lake Rd (Hwy 119). The region is lined with beautiful hiking trails, including the Pacific Crest Trail, which passes through the adjoining 21,000-acre Bucks Lake Wilderness in the northwestern part of Plumas National Forest. In winter, the last 3 miles of Bucks Lake Rd are closed by snow, making it ideal for cross-country skiers.
