A quick, mostly flat trail around the perimeter of the COS campus through well maintained forests. There are glimpses of Mt. Shasta but very few of the developed campus. You'll feel like you are in the woods. Show more

As of September 2020, trails in this area are closed due to wildfire. See park page for more information. Park at a turnout on 40N40 (Note FR 17 has virtually no off pavement parking near where the trail crosses). This historic section of the Sisson-Callahan trail is obvious for the most part. There are spots where having a preloaded map in your phone/gps app is very helpful, there is NO Cell Service. However you can still find old tree blazes cairns and even orange painted rocks (in 2020) to find the exact route. The trail fords the Trinity River near where it is formed from High Camp, Chilcoot, Deadfall and Bear creeks. It then starts climbing up the south facing slopes (crossed over by FR17), fords beautiful Bull Creek, switchbacks up the hill then passes along/through several meadows ringed with huge mature trees, before reaching Bull Lake. At Bull Lake make sure to circle around it to get over water views of Mt Eddy and Mt Shasta.Show more
