A moderate hike (approximately 2.5 miles from the Carson Pass trailhead) brings you to scenic Lake Winnemucca. We saw many families, dogs, and recreational fishermen on the day we hiked to the lake.

The Golden Trout Wilderness has supported native populations of golden trout (California’s state fish) for thousands of years in the drainages of the Upper Kern River. This wilderness contains all of the Little Kern River’s drainage as well as the North and South Fork of the Kern River plus 117 miles of streams; the Golden Trout Wilderness is a true trout haven.
