Sierra Wilderness & El Dorado Maps:

California Highway 50 climbs eastward, up to the High Sierra and it is a popular route over to Lake Tahoe from Placerville. Passing the Union Valley & Ice House Reservoirs ending up at the Desolation Wilderness boundary, the southern entrance to the Tahoe region, this Sierra Highway is often closed by winter storms. Plenty great camping, fishing & backpacking in the area.
