Trail  Sucess!

Hiked up with my dog, who is named Lola. It was her birthday. The hike up is easy and the views of Castle are pretty good. Otherwise nothing too eventful to report on this one.

Dayhike  Sucess!

Fun dayhike with my wife, some friends and their dog. There was a bit more snow than expected but we all made it up the snowy portions without spikes. Very windy at the top so we signed the register then ate lunch in the four-sided rock wall. A friend and I split off to bad Lola North while the rest of the crew went back down the way we came up. We met back up in Cold Stream Meadow and headed back to the car.

Big Brown Bear  Sucess!

Summited Lola and Lola North. We saw a BIG Brown Bear on our descent. He was lookin' right at us, seemed all flex with his hair stickin' straight out before he quickly turned tail and disappeared.

Third time's the charm  Sucess!

Third time's a charm! I had been out on this trail twice in 2016 but hadn't made it to the summit due to snow. We had a nice cool morning start (37 degrees around 8:30). After getting to the Mt. Lola summit, I tagged the North Peak since I knew it's the Sierra County high point. Nice weather, but there was some smoke and haze in the air. On the way down, we ran into a woman who had two large but friendly goat-rams. Super cute!

North Ridge  Sucess!

Still a few patches of snow in this drought year. Lots of wildflowers and lots of sun with a little breeze.

From Castle  Sucess!

A longer-than-expected slog over from Castle, then a long slog back to Donner Pass. Trip report.

North Ridge  Sucess!

Did this with Aj expecting a long day. However, due to the dry conditions we were able to drive to the Mt Lola Trail signpost. This saved us about 10miles of slog. The road was snowy and icy in parts, but passable in a passenger car. A nice warm day with clear views.

Two Lolas  Sucess!

The trail is easy to follow, the only possible confusion is when it follows a jeep road for awhile. Shortly after the broken down bridge it goes off to the left. Coming back I notice bike tire tracks on what appears to be a use trail on the left side of the road, but I didn't follow it. It appeared to merge with the trail again right where it first met the road.

I also hiked over to North Lola, which is at the far end of the ridge between the two peaks. There are summit registers on both peaks. Round trip time was 4:24.

Footbridge  Sucess!

Took the rough dirt road to a dilapidated old bridge marked "footbridge" on the topo map, at 7600'. Looked like others had driven across but I didn't risk it. From here the summit is appx 2.5 miles and 1600'. A nice woodland trail past beautiful Cold Stream Meadow, up to the summit with great views of the northern Sierra, from Freel to Sierra Buttes and beyond.

Mt Lola Trail  Sucess!

Generally no more than a few inches of snow. Snow was hard and some ice, but footing was good. No need for snow shoes. Really strange for January. Very cold and windy on summit ridge. Overall a great hike.
