great hike if acclimatize. bring your base camp to 3000 feet for 2 nights and leave early on the day to go on the summit. not technical if you climb the last part of the summit from the north.

I am in awe of this beautiful place. The trails are easy to see and the surroundings are spectacular. The waterfalls are a feast for the eyes and soul. I like that you can drive to the upper, lower and other points in between. Picnic tables and places to sit are a nice touch. Also, thanks for the well stocked... More

This is the place to get lost in the big trees and waterfalls. A must for all the over stressed lives we lead. Get there and happy birthday to our Parks They are what makes American Beautiful

Amazing nature site. Serene, surreal, magical! However, quite a few rules which limit one's experience.

I live here but often stop in to get information on specific trails and to get answers about specific regional questions. I have spoken to Don a few times - he knows the mountain and this area like no one else. All the rangers here actually get out and walk the trails and know what they are like in different... More

We drove from downtown Mt. Shasta to the top of the mountain (7000 ft. Elevation) where the trail head is to get to the summit. It was such a cool drive. The scenic overlooks were breath taking. There isn't a soul out there. Pristine Forrest surround you and you feel really connected with nature. I enjoyed being so up close... More

The drive through here on Interstate 5 is awesome. There are many roads that go off into the forest; great for exploring. But even if you stay on Interstate 5 you won't be disappointed. The best views of Mt. Shasta are heading south from Yreka.

Beautiful forest. There are trees all over the place. Even after the Cali drought it looks as if the forest was untouched. I highly recommend it.
