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

The trails on the McCloud River Loop are always a joy, even if the water is lower than most years. Well maintained and swimming holes for the young and old. Fishing, camping, great golf, all close by in McCloud.

We drove down I-5 to Mt. Shasta and our first views took our breath away! The mountain and surrounding cinder cones only got more beautiful and breathtaking the closer we got. It was like Mt. Shasta was pulling us to her!! We hiked Black Butte the next day. It was a hot hike (bring a hat and lots of water)... More

This was our first trip to this area of California. We read the Trip Advisor reviews and recommendations, so we were excited for our new adventure. Our trip to this forest was our most favorite. We took Hwy 89 to find the forest and then looked for signs to the McCloud waterfalls. Drive past the Fowler Campgrounds. We first found... More
