A couple of options come to my mind....
Carson Pass (CA 88) to Echo Summit (US 50)
Echo Summit to Emerald Bay (relativly short, very nice, lots of granite
in desolation wilderness, but only
partly on the PCT)
Echo Summit to McKinney-Rubicon Road (just past Richardson Lake) (longer)
Echo Summit to Barker Pass Road (if you're feeling really energetic)
These last two end on dirt roads of varying quality.
Squaw Valley to Soda Springs. (This would be nice too --
lots of ridge walking)
