Carson Pass, North Side

Drive west (turn right) onto Rt. 88 from Pickett’s Junction. Ascend past Red Lake, up onto the highest point: Carson Pass (8,500’.) Drive a short distance beyond Carson Pass and turn into the parking area on the right, at 8.9 miles. Look for artists in the right side parking area. Take the short trail out of the west side of the parking area to views of Round Top Peak, the Elephant’s Back, and wonderful old Western Juniper trees and boulders. A parking fee/per car is required at this location. Best to carpool!
