Hiking
Some of the best high sierra hiking trails start from Carson Pass, visit the ranger's station to get a look at the variety of trails, and choose one that appeals to you. All of them are beautiful, and many lead to high sierra lakes.

Another lovely trail to explore, it's about 4 miles round trip with some decent uphill hiking, ends at this gorgeous lake, where you can have a picnic lunch and hike back.
