Scout Carson Lake Professional Review and Guide
"A lovely, small, near-timberline lake is the goal of this trip, which passes through interesting geologic scenery along the way. An optional 1-mile round-trip detour to the 9408- foot summit of Thunder Mountain offers an expansive 360-degree vista of the Carson Pass region. The route continues with fine views of the surrounding volcanic battlements on the way to Scout Carson Lake. A 1.7-mile section of the Horse Canyon Trail between the junction with the Thunder Mountain Trail and the spur to Scout Carson Lake is open to motorcycles. However, they seldom travel that far up the trail from Silver Lake."
