One of the spectacular volcanos in the west. This one is easily seen from I-5.

This is well worth seeing. We have driven to the 8,000 foot level a couple of years ago. Too much snow this April. Just looking at this majestic mountain is awe inspiring, though

This sacred mountain lived up to what I expected. Serene and beautiful. Can get a bit busy at weekends with bicyclists. An easy if stiff hike to the top is rewarded with grand views. Enjoy !

The temperature was about 95 in Jujly when this came up on the horizon. Truly a Work of God. It is just breathtaking. Mt. Shasta stays with you for many miles you will find yourself looking in the rear view mirror when you pass it

One of the most impressive views in the world. It feels a very special vibe, lots of positive energy and sense of well being. The view is amazingly beautiful. Definitely one of my favorite places in the world.

Absolutely one of the most beautiful mountains in the world! Second tallest mountain in the state of California by less than 200 feet, and this mountain is all by itself unlike Mount Whitney which is in a large mountain range. One of my favorite places...More

Visited in the summer. Nothing to do at the summit but drove up there to have a look. Town was small and quaint but didn't stop for too long

We drove up as far as you can to the parking lot. Wonderful views, above the tree line. What an undiscovered spot and what a cute town!

We stayed a week in this area and explored the town. Relaxed and full of crystals! The mountain view was just incredible and such a good meditation focus. We were here to relax mostly and this place helped to do that.

If you want to climb the summit, it is a two day trek, as you have to camp up on the mountain so that you can make the summit in time. You will require full snow gear, including crampons, which can be rented in town....More

Do you have snow tires and or chains? Going over the hill into Oregon is steep. Right now it's not snowing, but check before you go. Bring the chains, they charge a lot up there. Mount Shasta is fine right now, they are... More
