The Whiskeytown-Shasta-Trinity National Recreation Area is a United States National Recreation Area in northern California. It has a total of 203,587 acres (82,389 ha) of land, which is divided into three units, Whiskeytown, Shasta and Trinity. The recreation area was established in 1965 by the United States Congress. The National Park Service manages the Whiskeytown unit. The Shasta-Trinity National Forest surrounds the Shasta and Trinity units, so they are managed by the United States Forest Service. Recreational activities available include camping, fishing, swimming, boating and hiking.

It’s a relatively flat route, really nice views of the lake and surrounding hills!

Just Beautiful. While it is rated moderate - I would say moderate for those that hike regularly- but can be challenging if you’re not in shape there are several inclines that are steep - but I would not say hard or difficult. It was well worth the hike in and back during the fall cooler temps was refreshing. It is a workout for sure. Took tons of pictures and video of the sites. Just gorgeous.

Another beautiful whiskeytown waterfall! Well kept trail, a little slippery in spots, but a great hike with an amazing payoff at the end.

This hike was so worth the three hour drive!! Absolutely perfect weather!! Some of the most beautiful scenery!!! The trails are clean, very little litter! People are super nice!!
I’d love to do this again!!

Great trail to go hike only bad thing we came across was people chain smoking cigarettes the whole time we were hiking

Peaceful quiet, dogwoods and trees turning colors, easy walk from the upper parking lot.

Beautiful trail, just lots and lots of poison oak. The mosquito's were pretty bad at this time as well.
