2022 UPDATE: Most of this National Forest has been devastated by recent wildfires. Much of the forest in between Bucks Lake and Oroville is now totally toast. That’s a whopping 50 mile stretch, hence 318,935 acres. Expect campground closures, damaged trails and heavy logging activity. Charred forests also exist all the way around Indian Valley and Lake Almanor, and along Highway 70, east of Quincy, CA

PCT – Pacific Crest Trail is burnt from Bucks Lake to Lassen!

Wild & Scenic Middle Feather River is burnt 40+ miles, from the town of Quincy to Lake Oroville.

CREEK FIRE 2020: Much of the Sierra National Forest was badly burned in a recent wildfire, but this Dinkey Creek area was spared. The huge fire moved the other direction – from Shaver Lake north and then eastward.

That means this Dinkey Creek Area may become more popular, along with high elevation lakes – Courtright and Wishon Reservoirs – now that this the only unburnt region around.

At least the nearby Sequoia trees in the McKinley Grove didn’t go up in flames.

NOTE: Much of the Sierra National Forest may be closed to the public (for years) due to forest hazards, loggers working, and general fire cleanup. Contact the local USFS Ranger station at Tollhouse to find out what areas are indeed open.
