Highland Lakes

Highlands Lake

Day Trip into Highlands Lakes on Ebbett’s Pass

Highland Lakes is one of those hidden paradise found in the Sierra just 10 miles off the beaten path, but accessible seasonally by most vehicles.

A Twin set of lakes set at  the end of Highland Lakes Road, seven miles off Highway 4. The twin lakes are set in a spectacular high alpine valley, close to the top of Ebbetts Pass at an elevation of 8,600 feet. U.S. Forest Service campgrounds are located at Bloomfield, where the road changes from paved to a rough dirt road (with some washouts), and two scenic campgrounds at Lower Highland Lake. Trails to Folger Peak, Hiram Peak, Asa Lake, Hiram Meadow, Spicer Reservoir, and the Pacific Crest Trail at Wolf Creek Pass depart from various points in the area.
