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.
