Mountain Biking Mt. Lola Trail

  Add a review
#870 of 1,005 mountain bike trails in California
#21,992 in the world

This trail climbs moderately upward through thick coniferous forests, through open meadows, along Cold Stream, to the top of Mt. Lola (the highest peak on the Tahoe National Forest). Panoramic views of the Sierra Divide can be seen from this vantage point. The trail continues down the south side of Mt. Lola to White Rock Lake and then on to the Pacific Crest Trail where it terminates.
Campsites with water are abundant for hiker or equestrian use, except within the last 3/4 of a mile of the trail ascending Mt. Lola's summit. Fishing for native trout along the trail is generally good. Plants and wildlife are plentiful. source: fs.usda.gov
