This easy 1.4 mile trail is located northeast of Crescent City. It offers great fishing.

Follow Doe Creek Trail for about 0.6 mile and take the Buck Lake Trail to a high elevation lake. Enjoy excellent fishing in the quiet solitude of the Siskiyou Wilderness.

The Siskiyou is a light to moderately used wilderness with most use concentrated along major trail systems and mountain lakes, particularly Young's Valley, Doe Flat, Buck Lake, Devil's Punchbowl, South Kelsey Trail near Elk Horn Bar, Summit Valley, Little Bear Valley and Kelly Lake. The most heavily used area in the wilderness is Kelly Lake. Remember, travel in wilderness areas is restricted to foot or horseback.

Directions: From Crescent City, Take Hwy. 101 to the junction with Hwy. 199. Go east on 199 ten miles past the Visitor Center to mile post 24.85. Turn right at Forest Service Road 16 (also called FS 17N05), and stay on the paved road for about ten miles to the intersection with Forest Service Road 16N02, turn left and continue about five miles.
