Drive up the mountain was exciting. With the drought and the heat there is less snow, but the view is gorgeous. You can drive up to about 8500 ft above sea level. The trails were well marked. Many people took the trail without paying (Shame on them). the alpine flowers were a joy to look at. Well maintained. I saw... More

The park areas are well-labeled - the hiking ranges from easy to difficult - something for everyone. Don't miss it!

My husband and I enjoyed a couple of visits to the Office in Alma Rd Mt Shasta. The Trail maps and information about the forest were immensely helpful during our time in the area. Staff were friendly and well informed. The garden outside was a treat as well in the Autumn foliage.

We hiked up to Castle Dome - absolutely amazing!! Do it if you are some combination of: fit, determined, curious and awed by the natural environment. The hike takes most people about 4 hrs. with stops for amazing views near the top. Bring your own water in the summer.....1 Qt. per person.

The Shasta-Trinity National Forest is beautiful! The hiking trails are wonderful. Easy access for persons with disabilities to get to the lookouts. No entrance fees.

We hiked up to the base camp, a cute little hut at 8000ft. Would have loved to stay overnite with a big fire, but too chicken to do it! About 1.5 miles up. It's a pretty easy walk, but give yourself enough time to get down before the sun goes down. The views of Mt. Shasta and the mountain ranges... More
