Castle Crags State Park, located six miles south of Dunsmuir on I-5, offers swimming and fishing in the Sacramento River, hiking in the back country, and a view of Mount Shasta. There are 76 developed campsites and six environmental campsites. The park features 28 miles of hiking trails, including a 2.7 mile access trail to Castle Crags Wilderness, part of the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. The Pacific Crest Trail also passes through the park. Castle Crags State Park is named for the 6,000-feet tall glacier-polished projecting rocks to which game hikers may climb for a great view of the area including Mount Shasta. Visitors should be aware of how high altitude may affect them.

Majestically stunning.

Very cool. Has views of Shasta throughout hike. Would recommend.

Awesome hike with stunning scenic views of the Shasta mountain with James, Stephie, Lulu!

Very vigorous but worth the hike! When you get to the trail end, be sure to climb to the top of the dome!

One of the best hikes out there. Strenuous but well worth the views from the top. Incredible.

Well maintained trail. Stunning views of Castle Crags and Mt. Shasta. Some patches of mosquitos along way (note to self: bring repellent next time :-). Was here on a weekday, crossed paths with approximately a dozen other hikers. Highly recommend.

Definitely worth it!!! Stunning view when u reached to the top.

Beautiful hike!

The trail head is just off of I5 and you can park for free. As you face the PC trail sign walk left a hundred feet or so to the trail head. The hike was great. Well worth the 2 hour drive. The trail is rated moderate but I would say it is between moderate and hard.
