Extreme Hiking / Hiking in Mount Eddy, Mount Shasta City, California USA

Trails:
Short, Medium
Mount Shasta is located in northern California, east of Interstate 5 along SR89, between Mount Shasta city and McCloud city, California, USA.

Mount Shasta is inside Shasta – Trinity National Forest. Mount Shasta is the second highest volcano in the Cascade Range. On the west of Mount Shasta, Mount Eddy dominates the mountain range across the valley. It is a conifer forest with granite rocks, alpine lakes and many small streams, offering a different hiking experience.

Hike trails are divided to short (15-45 minutes) and medium (1-2 hours) trails. Short trails are Box Canyon Dam and Trail, a ¾ mi/1.2 km trail, offering a wonderful view of the canyon and Castle Shore Trail, an easy ½ hour, 5 mi/8 km trail, with 6400 ft/1952 m elevation.

A medium hike is Castle Lake Trail, a 2-3 hour, 3 mi/4.8 km trail, with 6000 to 6200 ft/1823 to 1890 m elevation, which is strenuous at first and then turns into a moderate, rocky path. Best time to hike is early June to October. Mountains create their own weather, so better be prepared and informed about the weather, before you start your hiking adventure.
