This is a really nice hike. Since I like to do things the hard way, I hiked up instead of down. The location of this hike allows several options - today I parked near McBride Springs campground (where the trail crosses Everitt Memorial) and hiked an out-and-back on the upper section. (From the campground, follow the trail that says "water" to find the trail.) There are some patches of snow left, and really nice view of Mt. Shasta and the Eddies near the top. The trial is unsigned, but easy to follow. In a bigger snow year, there would be a lot more snow on the upper part of this trail, which might make it more difficult to follow.
