Hike from White Rock Lake to Mt. Lola via the Mt. Lola Trail. Tahoe National Forest, Sierra County, California, USA. The forest road to White Rock Lake has been improved recently, but still requires high clearance–avoid when wet. To find the Mt. Lola Trail from the lake, go to the dam at the southwestern end of the lake. The trail is about 50 ft south of the spillway. The spillway was dry, but if the water is high, you will have to find a crossing point downstream. The nearest footbridge is on the Pacific Crest Trail, about 3/4 mile away.
