By far one of the most scenic lakes regions in California, Gold Lake is part of the Lakes Basin Recreation Area. Plenty fishing, camping & hiking trails in this part of the forest. It's essentially the Northern Sierra or Gold Country North, since Historic Hwy 49 ends nearby. Gold Lake Road is closed in winter, but the snowmobiles have access. Cross country skiing & snow shoeing are also great here.
