Drive west (turn right) onto Route 88 from Pickett’s Junction. After Carson Pass, start down the hill and look for the sign on the Left: ELDORADO NATIONAL FOREST….WOOD’S LAKE, (10.3 miles from Pickett’s Junction.) At this sign, turn a sharp Left onto a narrow-paved winding road that travels over two small bridges, past the trailhead and camp parking into Wood’s Lake, (1.4 miles). Drive all the way to the Lake where you’ll find picnic tables and a restroom. Park in the designated spaces.
