Carson Pass Scenic Byway Stretching from the Sacramento Valley of California to the Carson Valley in Nevada, this 58-mile byway winds its way through the western slope of the Sierra Nevada, reaches the summit at Carson Pass, and ends up on the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada. One of the most visually dramatic of the trans-Sierra highways in California, you will witness views of ragged volcanic skylines, cool green meadows, mountain lakes framed by timber-covered slopes, adventure-filled rock valleys, and distant mountain peaks. Outdoor lovers can go camping, boating, or fishing at one of the many lakes and recreation areas along this route. Winter recreation is just as fantastic: try snowmobiling, sledding, cross-country or downhill skiing.
