At a lofty 14,179 feet, Mount Shasta is one of the tallest mountains in the American West. It is a grand volcano, soaring over 5,000 feet above the tallest neighbor, and presides majestically over northern California. Flanked by the Klamath Mountains on the west and the Cascade Crest to the east, the Mount Shasta region offers numerous exceptional hiking opportunities, both on the great mountain and in the ranges that surround it. Whether one is looking for wild hikes with crashing waterfalls and massive glaciers or the quiet solitude of alpine lakes and meadows, the Mount Shasta region offers spectacular hikes that will challenge and satisfy hikers of all skill levels.
