From the wonderful book by W.N. Davis page 35: "In the return to Lassen's, which the party reached on May 24th, the Pit River was followed south to the bend below Big Valley, from which point the men crossed the country beyond Hat Creek and, along the headwaters of the north fork of Battle Creek, advanced into the valley."
Swartzlow page 23: "Fremont then returned to Lassen's Ranch by a different route than that he had followed northward, crossing the Cascade range immediately north of the present Lassen Peak."I can't lay my hands on Kit Carson's autobiography at the moment but he may have also mentioned returning by a different route.
