At 4.3 million acres the Toiyabe National Forest is the largest national forest in the lower 48 states. The Carson Ranger District manages over one million of those acres in Nevada and California. Many habitats and ecosystems exist within the boundaries of this Ranger District. Fishing enthusiasts enjoy sparkling mountain streams and glacial lakes. Visitors can observe native wildlife and explore the high elevation desert of the Great Basin, flower-filled meadows in the springtime, and snow-covered mountain peaks of the Hoover Wilderness. There are many activities that provide relaxation and enjoyment. John Fremont crossed via Carson Pass in 1844. Soon afterward in 1849, thousands of people flocked to the western foothills of the Sierra Nevada in search of gold, bypassing the Eastern Sierra almost entirely.
