I’ve done this trail several times after work with my dogs. I enjoy that it is less popular than others. Fantastic vista of the Shasta Valley when you get to the summit. You’ll be able to see Mt. Shasta, Whaleback, Sheep Rock, Herd Peak, Haystack Butte, and Eddy from the top. It does get hot and I’ve seen my fair share of snakes in the summer, so be careful where you step. Enjoyable and fairly short hike. Highly recommend doing this trail in the winter.
