Kids can go and play in the snow. the roads were closed after Bunny flat and we parked there. Two restrooms are available there. A lot... More

What a majestic mountain. We drove 8 hours to hike this mountain. Unfortunately, it was raining and surrounded by clouds, so we didn't get to see the vista, but even so, the trails were well-marked and the signs were helpful. They had snow the week before, so the top of the mountain was closed, but we still hiked for a... More

If you are in the area, this volcanic peak is worth a stop - breathtaking views, plenty of photo opportunities, lots of things to stop and see. Plan a day trip, check the weather (especially in Winter), and pack some snacks, a good camera, and comfortable shoes. The views are well worth spending a day here!

If you are in the region, you won't miss it. It stands like a giant and can be seen from almost anywhere in the entire region. There is an easy drive up to the mountain leading to a trailhead. It's worth going up there.

Wow!! Just simply Wow!! I got to do a hike with friends. We were reminded safety first so we kept view of everyone in our group. Stayed on the trails and didn't vier off. We were also told to respect the mountain, much like Hawaii, you don't take anything from there out of respect. Other than those few rules that... More

Love this place! Gorgeous, easy hiking trails, golfing, spa treatments and beautiful, fully furnished cabins. The restaurant was good, even though the service was slooow. We will be back. Can't stay away from Mt. Shasta and McCloud!

The Visitors Center was very helpful showing us places to go and the kinds of things to expect. We drove up to the old ski area which is as far as you can drive up Mount Shasta. There were lots of trails to hike on, but we were not our for a climb. Many camping areas we did not explore.
