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!

Lolas  Sucess!

Fun explorations without a map on Lola as I succeeded in beating the sunset and nabbed two COHPs.

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.

Mt Lola Trail environs  Sucess!

We were able to drive quite a ways toward the summit of Mount Lola along a rough road that ran more or less parallel to the trail. It was a pleasant ridge walk from Pt 8944 north of the peak to the summit. This was part of a trip with fellow Cohpers to climb various county highpoints in the Tahoe region.

L-O-L-A Lola  Sucess!

Well I'd left home just a few days before,
and I'd never ever tagged this cohp before.

Mount Lola Trail  Sucess!

Hiked up in the the afternoon with my wife, starting from the trailhead. There is a dirt road that goes up quite far but the trail only touches it a couple of times; most of the route is a hiking trail. We were happy to find snow still on the east shoulder and above the NE bowl. We had a good camping experience at Findley Camp on Jackson Meadows Reservoir, which is very close to English Mountain.

Snowy ascent  Sucess!

Continuous snow after the first half mile of the trail. Took the snowboard to the summit and snagged a couple turns on the way down. Tons of snow for almost June.
