Bucks Creek to Mill Creek Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Generally, this is an easy, 5-mile, lakeside stroll through shady forest. However, when snowmelt swells the feeder streams emptying into Bucks Lake, a couple of fords can be quite treacherous—check with the Forest Service for current stream conditions in early season.

Even later in the summer, you may want to pack a pair of sandals or old tennis shoes for the fords of Mill Creek and Right Hand Branch Mill Creek. Aside from these two potential difficulties, the trail is a pleasant walk along the quiet, east side of Bucks Lake, near the boundary of Bucks Lake Wilderness, with plenty of fine views of the lake backdropped by forested hillsides."
