Awesome hikes to about 5 other lakes north, northeast towards the Nevada border. Good fishing and beautiful scenery. Says Shawn
This lake is one of the great places here in the Northern Sierra Nevada. You find the 7.5-mile-in-length Cisco Grove to Spaulding Reservoir segment of Yuba River - South Fork close by; this is a class IV-V(V+) whitewater bit. The Cisco Grove to Spaulding Reservoir segment of Yuba River - South Fork is proposed for expert whitewater boaters
exclusively. A category IV-V, 13-mile-in-length whitewater section can be found on nearby Yuba River - North Fork, the Wild Plum Campground to Downieville segment.
