Buck Lake Trail

Buck Lake Trail – 14N40


Buck Lake

Located off the Rubicon Trail about a half mile out of the Tahoma staging area, it runs up to Buck Lake and then on to the Ellis Peak/Lake Trail. The drive to Buck Lake isn’t too bad but the trail above the lake has one spot that will challenge most drivers.

The upper part of the trail is in the distance:

The trail goes along side Buck Lake with a short spur that goes down to the lake and to a few official camp areas with BBQs.


Great views of Tahoe from above Buck Lake.


This trail has been adopted by the North Tahoe Trail Dusters.
