The Sierra Canyon Hiking Group Thursday hike was to Mount Lola. At 9,143 feet I believe Mount Lola is the highest peak between Mount Lassen and Mount Rose. We hiked up from Henness Pass Road off of Highway 89. The hike was 5.3 miles each way with 2,500 feet of elevation gain. It was a very easy to walk on trail but the trail did go steadily up, up , up. The quiet and color on the way up were the kinds that make me love hiking.
The 360 degree view from the top was stupendous as you can see here.
As we reached the top a single hiker arrived from the south. Apparently you can also drive a rough dirt road to Independence Lake and have a much shorter hike to the top from the south.
