If you want a 360 degree view of all things Shasta (Shasta Dam, Shasta Lake, Mount Shasta and City of Shasta Lake), look no further. This highest spot atop the mountainous spine separating Keswick Reservoir from the City of Shasta Lake affords expansive views of the upper Sacramento Valley, the Sacramento River canyon below Shasta Dam and the western mountains. Flanagan Trail starts at the Flanagan Road parking lot and climbs up and over the ridge to the Upper Sacramento Ditch Trail. Chamise Peak Trail starts up the Flanagan Trail before turning right at the pass and continuing up to the top of the peak (1628). Great views from the top.

Great hike for our German Shepherd and the perfect amount of time (~2 hrs) for a late afternoon hike. We went in late December and it was warm thanks to global warming.

Easy to find parking. I'd say an easy hike if you are in shape. The view at the top Chamise Peak are worth it. It took me less than 2 hours at a leisure pace and hanging out at the top for a while.

Awesome view once you get to the top!
Gradual climb the whole way up for 2.4 miles, not easy for someone out of shape but had great weather and was able to take my time. Definitely going on this trail again!

The views at the top are worth the hike! You can see Shasta, Lassen Peak along with chaos crags and brokeoff mountain, and Sacramento River! The hike up was nothing special, but it was peaceful and not too steep. Took us about an hour and 30 min.

Trail is well maintained, plenty of shade on the hike up, trails are clearly marked and a bench up top! Not to mention beautiful views of the Sacramento River, Shasta Dam, Shasta Lake and Mt. Shasta. Not much to see on the way up but still well worth it.

Had a great hike with a good friend. Thank you Christine for hiking with me. The trail was so beautiful a little hot but love this trail. This is my 3 rd time on this trail. The view wasn't great there was smoke in the distance. Will hike this trail again.
