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.
I enjoyed our second visit to the area a good deal more than the first.
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
