    • I am glad that you found the site useful! If I can help or offer in other suggestions for your trip, don’t hesitate to let me know. I hope you have a good time!

      • Hi Bubba,

        Can I and where do me and 2 female golden retreivs camp along the mccloud river today , 11/8/2015 3:21PM. I am in Redding driving up now.


  2. This is a fantastic resource Bubba and you really have done a beautiful job! I moved to Mt. shasta a few years ago and have been hiking and exploring. Now you have given me some exciting new places to check out. Thanks so much. I will be sharing this with my friends.

    • Thanks you very much for the feedback. I really appreciate it. I hope that the site really does prove useful for exploring this tremendous place. It is amazing how many great places we have up in this area and that so many of them receive such little use. Please feel free to let me know if I can improve something or if there is something I missed!

  3. I have been hiking this region for years but your site gives me scores of new places to visit and new places to explore on my old favorites. Thanks Bubba. One nice addition would be a print ready pdf of the hike text and map to print and take on the hike. I usually copy and paste this into a word doc. and can fit everything on 2 sides of a single sheet of paper. Thanks again, I’m recommending this site to all my friends and posted it on my Facebook page.

  4. Good day if anyone is going to be hiking Mt Shasta this week I would love to come along.
    The weather is changing quickly & I was hoping to take a hike with someone or a group
    that knows the area well.
    We will be leaving the area probably next week so again this week anytime would be awesome.

    Bubba if you know of anyone would you please have them contact me at
    The website & photos are beautiful!

    • Thank you very much! I really appreciate that. I am currently working on a page covering the entire McCloud River Trail from Algoma to past the Lower Falls, so there will be more stuff on hikes in the McCloud area too!

  5. Hey Bubba, I’ve been following your pages, hikes and photos on SummitPost for some time now. Very detailed information and fantastic photos. I finally got to meet you (not the best circumstances I suppose) just north of Yreka on Hwy. 263 at the Pioneer Bridge. Just wanted to comment on your website in saying that something like this was long overdue. Excellent page for everyone interested in hiking the region (even us locals). Thanks for the fantastic info. and keep it coming.

    • The conditions were certainly unfortunate but it was memorable. Thanks much for the feedback on the site. I really appreciate it. Give me a holler if you ever want to hit the trail!

  6. Impressive job on this website. We are planning a trip out there. Your “Many Lakes” trail (under the article about 5 great views) sounds like it might be perfect for us. Can’t find it by that name or mt 7149 on your list. How do we find the “many lakes” trailhead and/or is there any other info that we should know about that trail?

      • Thanks. When I looked through your lists, I didn’t catch that “seven lakes” is a specific area name for what I’m guessing is a more generalized area that you refer to as “many lakes”. I will have to study the geography a bit more, to get it in my brain better ….and print out the info to carry with us …but I think this will be an excellent choice for our major hike while we pass through Shasta area on our way from Sacramento on up to Oregon. The info on your site is better than any trail guide I’ve ever seen.

        One more question: is the road up to Gumboot trailhead OK for a regular car? We will be in a rental car, small sedan type, Nissan Versa or Toyota Yaris, something like that.

      • The road up to Gumboot is paved the whole way. The last stretch is narrow and one lane and has a real dropoff so drive slow and careful. It is not bad, but you don’t want to tear through there. Also, the road forks well into the canyon. Stay right to get to the trailhead. If you go left it goes to Gumboot Lake, NOT THE GUMBOOT TRAILHEAD. Stay right and you will be OK. Just to clarify, the Seven Lakes Basin is a distinct entity named for obvious reasons. I named the mountain Many Lakes Mountain because, in addition to the Seven Lakes Basin, it looms above the Cliff Lakes Basin and the Mumbo Lakes Basin as well. There are 14 lakes in three separate basins below the mountain. Even by Sierra Nevada standards, that is a lot.

        Just a thought for if you are coming through the area after July 1. The road up to the Old Ski Bowl on Mount Shasta will be open and the trail to Squaw Meadow will be open. Do consider that one. It is tremendous.

        Thanks for the kind words on the site! I really appreciate it!

  7. Love your site! I’m an avid day hiker and have become more so throughout the year. I have a German Shepherd and I’m finding it difficult to find dog friendly trails. I prefer to let him off leash. Are there any trails that don’t allow these friendly wagging tails?

    • Really enjoy your site,I live in Scott Valley where there are lots of great hikes.Going to go on some hikes in the Shasta and Castle Crags area now thanks to this site.By the way that road on the Goosenest hike is named after Bob Rath he lived here in Scott Valley for a long time and took many pictures of the wilderness in our area.

  8. We are back in Virginia and happy to report that we followed your directions and had three beautiful hikes in the Shasta/many lakes areas. Got straight to the trailheads without getting lost and enjoyed the vistas as we followed your trail descriptions. Thanks for all the free/excellent guide services!

      • Our first day, we did Panther Meadows along with some time on the Old Skibowl. We then drove up to the Crest at route 26, disperse-camped a little below the crest itself, and then hiked the “Many Lakes” trail the next day …absolutely gorgeous hike. Didn’t get lost for one minute.
        …and to say it again: This is simply the best hiking website I’ve ever seen.

  10. Thank you for this site–what an amazing resource! I am planning to go out for 5-6 days in mid-June. I’d like to cover maybe 80-100 miles, preferably low contact with other people (not sure if PCT would be crowded). Do you have any recommendations for a trail route? This would be greatly appreciated!!

  11. Thanks so much for following LivingDubois, and especially for your nice comments about my blog on wild life! Our interests seem to be the same, though for different locations. Makes me think I should be linking to specific information about hikes in the Wind River Valley. All the best, Lois

  13. I love the site! Wondering if anyone can tell me if there are any restrictions on taking horses on any of the trails? e.g. to Horse Camp. I’ve read up on several trails and none of them speak to horses either way. It might be my suggestion for the site…as I know horse people that love the area as well and would like to know more about the trail system….

  14. Hi Jay. I don’t monetize my site and if I did, I don’t think your video would fit with my readership or my style. I do appreciate the offer though. Good luck!
