Blue Lakes Road
10.65 miles South of Carson Pass

Tamarack Lake Road
Hiking a tenth of a mile South of the Blue Lakes Road we encounter a junction sprouting a trail leading to our Right, South to the Tamarack Trailhead.
The road out to the Tamarack Trailhead is located a short ways down Blue Lakes Road where we crossed it on the Pacific Crest Trail.
The dirt road to the Tamarack Trailhead continues South from the Tamarack Trailhead paralleling the course of our PCT route, but along the South shores of Tamarack, Lilly Pad, and Summit Lakes. This dirt road ends on the East side of Wet Meadow Reservoir.
Trail to Tamarack Trailhead from the PCT
.75 of a mile South of this trail junction to the Tamarack Trailhead along the Pacific Crest Trail backpackers encounter the creek draining East from Tamarack Lake.
Tamarack Lake is an eight-mile up this creek to our right, to the West.
This creek dies during late Summer of dry years.
