The Loch Leven Lakes are located in Placer County, California. Three larger lakes and several smaller ones are centered at and can be found on the "Cisco Grove" and "Soda Springs" USGS topographic maps.
The Loch Leven Lakes are a popular day hike, with the U.S. Forest Service rating the trail's use level as "heavy" and its difficulty as "moderate". The Loch Leven trailhead is near the Big Bend Visitor Center (just off Interstate 80), and the trail climbs 1,070 feet (325 m) in 2.5 miles (4 km) to reach the first lake, with Upper Loch Leven (also known as High Loch Leven) another 1.1 miles (1.7 km) beyond.
