Bucks Lake Wilderness
Located in the northwestern portion of the Plumas National Forest, the 21,000 acre Bucks Lake Wilderness was established in 1984. The wilderness has a broad diversity of vegetation and topography. A few small lakes and ponds are located throughout the area. Ground cover varies from brush fields to conifers, oaks and pure stands of red fir. Bare rock slopes, cliffs, quaking bogs and small mountain meadows are found at the higher elevations. Elevations range from 2,000 feet in the Feather River Canyon to 7,017 feet at Spanish Peak. The top of the escarpment, which the Pacific Crest Trail crosses, commands a spectacular view of the forest to the east and north. Mount Lassen is visible on clear days.
