Silver Lake is nestled deep within the heart of the Sierra Nevada at the base of Carson Peak, just below the confluence of Reversed Creek with Rush Creek. California Route 158 traverses along the eastern shore, while a row of fine summer homes and cabins lies across the lake to the west. Silver Lake is also home to one of the Sierra’s oldest fishing and vacation resorts. The Silver Lake Resort was originally known as “Carson’s Camp,” and has been famous for quality mountain recreation since the 1920’s. The Rush Creek Trailhead is located near the resort at the north end of the lake, providing trail access to the Rush Creek Basin, The Ansel Adams Wilderness and Yosemite National Park. The Rush Creek Trail interconnects with the Pacific Crest Trail system and the John Muir Trail, and the local backcountry is fabulous. At the trailhead, the Frontier Pack Station is on hand to provide horses and mules, with packages ranging from local day rides to extended pack trips into the wilderness.
