Jamison Lake Professional Review and Guide

"Of many possible hikes into the famed Lakes Basin Recreation Area, this one offers mining history, mountain vistas, and a waterfall, as well as lakes. The steepest part of our entire trail climbs the hillside beyond the mine, sometimes by aid of stone steps. Just as the gradient begins to lessen, we pass the signposted junction with the Smith Lake Trail (keep right), and shortly thereafter cross the state park boundary into the Lakes Basin Recreation Area of Plumas National Forest. Reaching our first mile, we come to a little spur fork that leads back to the banks of Little Jamison Creek, whose pretty waterfall splashes some 30 feet down through a ravine."
