Mt. Lola Trail  Sucess!

Tagging another OGUL peak (and didn't realize that the county highpoint was also up there, so I'll likely be heading back at some point.

Summit was nice, the trail was fairly noninteresting- all under tree cover and everything had long since dried out this summer.

Pics are here.

Complete solitude on Labor Day weekend  Sucess!

Hiked from the trailhead on Henness Pass Road. Didn't see a single car on my way in or out, not a soul on the mountain in or out, which surprised me on this long weekend. Hiked cross-country to the Sierra County highpoint on the north ridge. Instead of hiking back up to Mount Lola on the way back, I sidehilled through the talus bowl on the southeast side of the peak and climbed past a small snowfield en route back to the trail.

Very enjoyable outing, amazing clear views in all directions, solitude was very nice. Very warm, almost no wind, perfect conditions.

Oh Lola  Sucess!

Hiked up from Perazzo Meadows via the Cold Stream trail. What glorious views from this humble summit! Then on to Lola North and down the wonderful north ridge cross country. I love this uncrowded part of the Sierra.

Main Trail  Sucess!

Great dayhike! Windy and cold with patches of snow. Followed the ridge to the north before returning crosscountry.

Mount Lola Trail  Sucess!

Relatively straightforward hike to the summit. We encountered a mountain biker at a surprisingly high spot on the trail--I'd be very impressed if he biked all the way to the summit.

Mt. Lola Trail  Sucess!

Took the day off work to bag two county highpoints with Sady. Ended up driving a PG&E worker out who got stuck with his 4WD. Drove him out to Nyack. All in all a cool hike with some cool views of the Sierras. I will be sure to go back. Also did Lola North.

Mt. Lola Trail  Sucess!

Nice and easy hike to the summit from the Mt. Lola Trailhead. Super gusty winds at the summit almost knocked me over a few times. Tagged Lola North then headed cross country back. Didn't see another soul.

Beautiful Day

Moderate climb on a beautiful Monday. Didn't see anyone else the whole day. 5.5 hours start to finish, with a 20 minute rest at the summit.

Solo Trip  Sucess!

My first real solo peakbag. I saw 1 person in 10.7 miles. Good hike, 40 MPH gusts at the top. Also bagged Mt. Lola North, then X-countried east back down to the trail.

Via Mt. Lola Trail 08.19.06  Sucess!

Just a touch of snow - stunning views, much solitude. Couldn't get Barry Manilow's "Copacabana" out of my head... "her name was Lola... she was a showgirl..." made me want to lobby to change the name of "North Lola" to "Mt. Rico". Register almost full - bring a steno sized notepad if you're planning a trip here soon.

Mount Lola  Sucess!

Fled the heat (100+ F) in Reno up to the mountains for a hike to Mount Lola. There is still plenty of snow above 8400 feet, enough to lose the trail near the ridge, but it was no issue to go around or over the snow. It was partly cloudy a bit hazy to the South around Lake Tahoe, because of the unusually high monsoonal humidity and possibly smoke from wildfires, but we could just make out Lassen Peak on the horizon, 94.6 miles away NNE. The wildflowers were out in force, especially in Cold Stream Meadow. This has been one of my favorite hikes since moving to Reno.

Nice short afternoon hike from White Rock Lake after climbing English Mountain in the morning. There are way too many ATVs out there.

What should have been an easy hike was made more difficult by booze and food from the night before. In the summit register from 8/17/05 it said "Lion Kill just off trail, be careful". A few snow fields still visable.

Route Climbed: Mt. Lola North Direct and North Ridge Traverse Date Climbed: 2 July 2005  Sucess!

A longer day than expected, mostly because of more snow than expected (ie: more than "none"). Last 400 vertical feet on Lola North was a hairy snow slope in hiking shoes (not even boots) and fingers for ice axe. Last visit to Lola North was 2 weeks ago, at least two other groups summitted Lola proper today, braving endless snow field crossings. So much for July!

Route Climbed: Mt. Lola Trail Date Climbed: July 8, 2004  Sucess!

A very enjoyable summit which I had all to myself. I had to kill a lot of mosquitoes on the way up but the trail is a delight with the stream nearby most of the way. Some snow patches to cross near the top but that adds to the alpine feeling. Nice view spot. I must have had the 7th in my mind as I dated the summit register with that lucky number. Lola is the highpoint of Nevada county so always nice to pick up when you chase county highpoints as I do.



I went north and tagged the summit of Sierra county highpoint, North Lola and crosscountried down to the trail, hitting an old logging road about 500 feet down on the east side.

Met my summitpost friend, Keema as i was nearing my vehicle at the trail head. Small world indeed but I did have a close call with a downhilling mountain biker that nearly

sent me to the promised land. Great hike.

Still a fair amount of snow on the way to the top, but I was still able to follow the trail blazes. Tagged the N ridge on the way back.

After a failed first attempt a few months earlier, Matthew and I returned for a second effort and found the weather considerably more cooperative. A very enjoyable winter outing. Trip Report
