Buck Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The trail to Buck Lake can lead far into the backcountry by synching up with many different trails. But Buck Lake itself is accessible by a short, fairly easy approach and makes a great trip for those who want a shorter day hike or an enjoyable outing with kids.

While the lake is murky and not a great place for swimming, bird life flourishes near the water’s edge and your odds of seeing elk or mountain goat are good, as they use these trails more than we do!"
