  • Visited in the summer. Nothing to do at the summit but drove up there to have a look. Town was small and quaint but didn't stop for too long  more »
  • We drove up as far as you can to the parking lot. Wonderful views, above the tree line. What an undiscovered spot and what a cute town!  more »
  • We stayed a week in this area and explored the town. Relaxed and full of crystals! The mountain view was just incredible and such a good meditation focus. We were here to relax mostly and this place h...  more »

  • The gigantic volcanic peak has multiple personalities. Every side displays a different look-- from a perfect pointed peak, to glaciers, to barren rubble strewn slopes, to a down-sized Shastina growing off its west side. I think the north face is just beautiful. It's a long way up to that 14,000 plus summit.
  • A lovely place for everyone! Perfect for adventurers from around the world, hikers, hardcore spiritualists, hippies, yuppies, animal right activists and environmentalists, natives and okies alike. It doesn't matter to the mountain. It silently beckons to all walks of life. I make my trek to Shasta routinely and have been doing so since 1983. It's like going to visit an old friend.
  • I first reached the summit in 1977 (14,180 ft) Since then I've stood on top four more times. It's a beautiful mountain to look at, and from the summit it's a beautiful area to see.
  • Beautiful beautiful space! There are so many gorgeous places along the way up Mt. Shasta. Plenty of hiking and camping options .. we only drove to the top though, didn't hike on. Many people do though!
  • Found this place amazing when i got here in Sept 2017. I enjoyed the hikes, trails, camping, wood fires. Felt extremely relaxed watching the clearest milky way ever! Will definitely come back. Town was lovely and people were super cool. Stayed at Panther Meadows and driving to the halfway point watching the sunset at night. Peaceful and tranquil place.
