Twice last year, and made it on top of the dome. It is a magical area.

One of the most beautiful hikes I've done. If you are looking for a challenge this is a must do. Bring lots of water and snacks, especially if you have kids. We did Bob's Hat Trail.

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.
