Mostly down hill on the way in. Would recommend staying the night and exploring the East Fork Carson down past soda cone.

The trail from Highland Lakes to Asa Lake is poorly marked. We missed the Asa Lake turn off. FYI it's about 75 yards past the "Entering Wilderness" sign. At this point the trail starts downhill and the split is hardly noticeable because the left fork (the one you want to take to Asa Lake) looks more like drainage or creek bed, so it's very easy to assume the trail you've been on just continue on to the right. Take the drainage one that veers off to the left.
On Laborday weekend the Highland Lakes campground was completely full.
