Trail description: Loch Leven trail leaves the South Yuba river canyon, crossing the ridge above to reach the glacially formed Loch Leven lakes chain, small bowls in the granite. The trail is open for hiking early June to November, weather permitting. The trail is not marked for winter use, and is difficult to find in winter.

The trail works its way upward on a moderately steep grade to the southwest to the UPRR tracks, then trends southeasterly.

Granite outcroppings and glacial erratic are numerous along the first portion of the route, and the trail can be difficult to follow on the bare rock sections. As the trail ascends, it crosses minor hogbacks and depressions, generally trending upward. Prior to the railroad tracks, hikers see the markers for a buried telephone trunk line, and petroleum pipeline that they cross. Near the tracks, a small bridge spans a creek that flows swift and cold in early season.

The railroad tracks are on the original 1860s route of the Central Pacific railroad, built by hand with Chinese labor. It remains a major freight and passenger route in and out of California.

After crossing the tracks, the trail becomes steeper, going from 6,000’ to 6,800’ in 1.25 miles. At the top of the ridge, the trail descends gradually into the Loch Leven lakes basin. The trail in the basin is primarily level, but follows the topography.

At the south end of lower Loch Leven, a trail junction continues left to middle and high Lochs, or right to Salmon Lake.

Fishing is generally good, and camping is dispersed throughout the basin. Campfire permits are required for campfires, backpacking stoves, BBQs, and lanterns.

Trail Type:

Counties Trail is in:

From Wentworth Springs Road, 11 miles east of Georgetown, turn north on Volcanoville Road. Go approximately 1.5 miles to Rubicon Road. Turn right and go approximately 2 miles down to an uphill spur road with a signpost with Nevada Point Trailhead on it. Turn right. The road ends shortly at the trailhead. The trail winds down to a footbridge crossing Pilot Creek (1.4 miles). The trail continues another 0.2 mile to the Rubicon River where the bridge is washed out. Dangerous water currents in the Rubicon River at this point make crossing on foot or horse very difficult (not recommended). Across the river the trail is very difficult to follow, with several landslides, fallen timber and the trail is heavily overgrown with brush. The trail ends at Dad Young Springs Road, 1.5 miles up from the Rubicon River.

Nevada Point Trail leads to the river from Road 13N41 and is very steep and arduous. Contact the Georgetown Ranger Station for trail conditions before attempting this trail.
