Impressive view. Very nice place to spend the day or for camping. The sunset is amazing, you can walk until the mountain with no special cloth, very even paths Recommend

This mountain never ceases to take my breath away. If you are self aware, you will feel this magical place in so many ways. No matter the time of year, it gives pause and refreshes the soul

Friendly neat small town just off the interstate, named after the rather impressive mountain just nearby. We stopped on the way north heading for Oregon, just to overnight somewhere quiet with some facilities. Ended up staying for a week! Rented mountain bikes, kayaks and did a lot of lake swimming: Siskiyou is really beautiful, easy to park and not too... More

Visit often as we live in Redding. Mt Shasta Ski Park is a treasure with such reasonable rates and perfect for families. They have a variety of runs from one perfect for beginners and others challenging enough for everyone. If you go during a weekday you will most likely have no wait times. The town is fun to wander with... More

We spent the last year living in Northern California, and yeah, it was great that it was always "nice" out--but it was winter and we wanted to see some snow, gosh-darnit!! We drove as high up as we could and tromped around on top of four or five feet of densely-packed snow, my wife alighting on top of it like... More

Went there in November after fresh snows. You need to have a four wheel drive. On my way down I saw that a car had skidded off the road. the views are simply breathtaking. Kids can go and play in the snow. the roads were closed after Bunny flat and we parked there. Two restrooms are available there. A lot... More

What a majestic mountain. We drove 8 hours to hike this mountain. Unfortunately, it was raining and surrounded by clouds, so we didn't get to see the vista, but even so, the trails were well-marked and the signs were helpful. They had snow the week before, so the top of the mountain was closed, but we still hiked for a... More

If you are in the area, this volcanic peak is worth a stop - breathtaking views, plenty of photo opportunities, lots of things to stop and see. Plan a day trip, check the weather (especially in Winter), and pack some snacks, a good camera, and comfortable shoes. The views are well worth spending a day here!

Thank noworries2000
