Mt Shasta, California Map

Beautiful views of Shasta! Tough and rocky hike, but well worth it. Full exposure, so be prepared for sun and wind.

Best views you can get for such a short hike. Trail isn't marked 100%, but it's fairly easy to navigate. i suggest hiking above heart lake for an even more breathtaking view!

***I will delete this as soon as the road is clear.

There is a large boulder slide blocking most of the road leading to this place. (I went around in my tiny Prius but anything barely wider will not make it) drove several more miles until I was 5 miles away from starting point (according to this app) and there was a foot of snow covering the road. Today is May 4th 2017, I am going to try again soon as it is supposed to be warm up here for a while.

I just wanted to post something recent so people wouldn't waste their time/gas as I did heading up there today. Well.. not so much gas in the Prius but you know what I mean. :) happy trails!!!

I know this trail would have been worthwhile, so I'm giving it 4 stars. we tried to hike 5 days ago and it was ice covered in parts, which wasn't a big deal for me until we got to a steep and icy part. I was not equipped with the proper footwear to make it safely across the ice so we stopped and turned back.

Great trail but gets hot in summer.. bring a lot of water

We hiked this route last September. We start 1am midnight. We got all our gear ready. It was only half mile & will be in the summit, but we had to turn around due to weather was in favor for us that day, wind & clouds was getting crazy. We checked the weather before we go but we just never know, it's changes every second specially you are in the highest altitude. Better be safe than sorry! . Worse hike I've ever been. Better Train yourself & plan before u do this hike. Definitely going back to reach the summit. View is amazing when u reach to the top!
