Stolle Peak is a tree-covered summit located 6 miles SSW of Warm Lake and W of Stolle Meadows. From 1934 to 1950, it had a fire lookout. There was not much left of this structure when I visited the summit in 1988. There have been fires in this area since 1988. I don’t if recent fires have burned the summit. The trail to the summit has not been maintained for many years. Please note that while older Forest Service maps identified this peak as Stolle, the current USGS map identifies this peak as the Cougar Rock Benchmark. USGS Rice Peak
