Pretty easy and peaceful trail. 5 mi Out and back from parking lot across from golf course to river delta until the bridge goes in after the melt (I’m told in June ). Never too crowded.

Nice easy walk. Some snow runoff. Great Eagle Scout Bench project by a Mr Niles looks up to a snow capped mountain.

Great hike! Had to walk through knee high water at one point, but it felt great after doing 5 miles! Didn’t see very many people on the trail early in the morning, but around 1pm started seeing more people! Definitely recommend this hike for anyone!

The Mount Shasta Trail Association now no longer encourages use of this trail because of a dangerous condition. The Black Butte Trail is one of the oldest and most well used National Forest trails near Mt Shasta. Unfortunately, because of the severe reduction of trail maintenance funding in the last few years, the trail has become dangerous. There is a short section of trail where a wire basket retaining wall has partially failed and will continue to fail. Part of it has collapsed across the trail, and the remaining part is hanging out over the trail at a sharp angle. If it were to fail while someone was hiking by, there could be tragic results. There is no practical alternate off-trail route because of extensive large boulder fields. Consequently, the Trail Association no longer provides information on how to reach the trail nor details about the trail. We suggest you explore other trails in the area. The Siskiyou Outdoor Recreation Alliance (Mountain Runners) is working with the Forest Service to find a solution.

We were out on a short snowshoeing day. Beautiful area. Not to steep. People out in cross country skies as well. Brought the pup, couple others did the same. When the fog wasn't to thick you could see the mountain.

Awesome short hike with a magical pay off. No trail head so it was a little tricky to figure which direction to start out. Moderate incline, neat to see the old ruins. The falls were amazing, freezing as we went in January.. so dress accordingly, gloves I’d recommend. So worth it tho!

Beautiful! Secluded. I would say moderate for the incline. Took some side trails. Falls are magical.

lovely little hike! slight incline in dense forest. wide path great for kids. quick payoff for a beautiful waterfall. easy access down to dip your toes.

quiet trail and perfect for snowshoe and cross country. we hiked it and it was still very enjoyable.

This is a walk on the closed snow road. It's good for a stroll with kids and dogs in the winter. The sledding is awesome but didn't feel like a hike at all.

Good conditions, some parts are a little slippery and hard to find footing with the snow so bring poles if you have them

Didn’t see Shasta due to clouds, but it was a nice morning hike
