Books by Bubba Suess:


This was my first book and one born out of this website. It covers the entire Mount Shasta area, making it the most exhaustive hiking guide for this part of California. Including all trails on Mount Shasta as well as the Trinity Divide, Castle Crags and McCloud River area, other sections feature lesser known areas such as the Shasta Valley and the Scott Mountains. This is an indispensable resource while exploring the Mount Shasta region.


Covering the northern 2/3’s of California, this book stretches from the southern border of Sequoia National Park and the Big Sur area north to the Oregon border. Including 80 trails covering 9 regions in the most beautiful part of America, this book is a visual feast that whets the appetite for hikers ready to explore spectacular trails.


The Wine Country, though known for its world-renowned viticulture, is also an incredible hiking destination. Blessed with a temperate, year round climate and an impressive array of large parks, this area beckons hikers to explore trails laden with awesome vistas, redwoods, rugged coastlines and excellent wildflower displays.

Grover Shipman’s incredible guide is exhaustive in its coverage of rock climbing in Siskiyou County. It features excellent photography, many of which are aerial. It also features a fantastic history of rock climbing in the area. A great resource that should be in every Mt. Shasta library, even if you are not a rock climber!

Not exactly Mount Shasta, but Black Butte deserves its due! This is a very scenic book that unlocks some of the mystery of Mount Shasta’s small neighbor.


Excellent guide to the wildflowers on Mount Shasta. It features the exquisite paintings of the legendary Ed Stuhl, one of the forefathers of Mount Shasta recreation!
