Buck Creek Trail - This trail is open to foot and horse traffic only since it is located within the North Fork Umatilla Wilderness. The trail follows Buck Creek for 3.5 miles, crossing the creek numerous times (30) as it winds through the forest. Users should use caution on creek crossing during the spring run off periods. The trail is easy going as it climbs only 800' to where it merges with Lake Creek Trail #3079. Lake Creek Trail continues approx. 2 more miles up the Lake Creek drainage before leaving the wilderness area. Once the trail has left the wilderness area, it continues for another 2 miles until it reaches Forest Service Road #3150. This portion of the trail goes through clearcuts and burned areas. Potable water and vault toilets are available at the Umatilla Forks day use area.
