Truckee, California

Mt. Lola and White Rock Lake Professional Review and Guide

"An infrequently used trail north of Lake Tahoe leads strong hikers to a far-ranging view of the northern Sierra and southern Cascades from the tallest peak between Lassen in the north and Freel to the south. Those with extra time and stamina have the option of a fine extension to picturesque, island-studded White Rock Lake. Backpackers have several campsite choices, either along Cold Stream or around White Rock Lake.

The general vicinity offers a number of forest service campgrounds. The signed trail begins at the far end of the parking area. From the trailhead, follow singletrack stream to the left, you continue upstream trail on a moderate climb through a on a mild grade through mixed forest, mixed forest of western white pines, lodge- breaking out into the open at Cold Stream pole pines, and white firs."
