Lane Mountain is an easy drive up summit, although, I would recommend a high clearance vehicle as the road up can be kinda rough. In the sprit of SOTA, I didn’t drive up all the way, but parked just below the top and hiked up. At the top is a communications site with several microwaves. You can walk around the fence housing the facility for great views of the surrounding areas. Once there, I immediately heard a couple friends I was camping with on 2M; it was nice to get them in the log. Worked 40, 30 and 20M. After exhausting chasers, I packed up and headed home to Los Angeles.
