We drove to the Bunny Flat trailhead on Mount Shasta to hike the Horse Camp trail up to the spring by the Sierra Club cabin. The first part of the hike is uphill in the sun, so be sure to get an early start when the air is cool. The trail gradually enters the forest and ends at a cool spring with clean water.

This place looks like something you’d see in a travel magazine. It’s a great place to fish, hike, canoe, etc and enjoy the beautiful scenery. One of the most serene places in all of California.

This is a great Forest with lots to do. Campgrounds were excellent. Waterfalls on McCloud River were great.

In May it is still cold and some roads ate still closed. This is as close as we got but it is impressive. Go in the summer or early fall.
