Ebbetts Pass (East side)

 Ebbetts Pass (East side) 

The pass is registered as a California Historical Landmark. Named after John Ebbetts, a California pioneer, who traversed the pass in April 1851 with a large train of mules.Glacially carved valleys, granite outcroppings, basalt columns, ancient volcanic peaks, deep river canyons, majestic stands of Giant Sequoia, open meadows, pristine alpine lakes, precarious drop-offs, hot mineral pools, swiftly flowing streams, cascades and rivers, and some of the most dramatic and breathtaking views of the Sierra Nevada mountain range—these are just a few of the natural wonders awaiting you as you travel the Ebbetts Pass National Scenic byway. Unlike any other Sierra pass, it is silver that built Ebbetts Pass. With the discovery of silver on the western slope of the Sierra Nevada, Native American trails were transformed into dirt roads by fortune seekers heading west.
