Its dramatic volcanic backdrop lends outstanding panache to Round Lake, already rich in wildflower gardens and historic connections to the first trans-Sierra expedition of explorers Kit Carson and John C. Fremont. No wilderness permit required but campfire permit required for stove or fire. Parking fee required during summer at the Meiss Lake and Carson pass parking areas. No bikes are allowed on the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), but bikes do approach Round Lake from the north.
