Head up Blue Lakes Road near Carson Pass, but make certain you have all your ice and supplies, because it’s a long way back to town. The nearest shopping is at Woodfords, or up over the pass and down at Caples Lake—but they don’t have much. For the first 7 miles off CA 88 (Carson Pass National Scenic Byway), you’ll breeze along the nicely paved Blue Lakes Road by the West Fork Carson River. Then the road turns to dirt for the last bonejarring 5 miles to Lower Blue Lake.
