I still can't find my pics, but I ran across these photographs taken back in the thirties. Taylor lake is a very pretty very small lake. Kinda hard to get to, its not very well signed and you are on about five miles of dirt roads to get there. Gets a little rocky right near the lake but not bad. No facilities. A road winds around up the back side to the lookout. The lookout is no longer manned, just used for a repeater site now.

This is in the Plumas National Forest. Northwest of Antelope lake. Northeast of Quincy.

You can either take the direct road from taylorsville, or the way I usually go (since we camp at antelope) is about 7 miles from the lake (antelope lake on the road to taylorsville) you turn off and start going uphill. Theres a couple more ways if you want to get deep into the forest.
