Carson Pass to Fourth of July Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This 14.5-mile loop provides nonstop mountain vistas and features three very pretty alpine lakes, all good for camping, swimming, and fishing. Snow usually flies early on Carson Pass, but if you happen to catch the autumn window between summer and snow, expect to find much of the hike’s plant life draped in showy golden hues."
