Shasta Valley Trails

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

The Shasta Valley is a large depression north of Mount Shasta that lies between the Cascade Range to the east and the Klamath Mountains to the west. Most of the valley is occupied by farms and cattle ranches. However, small areas administered by the Shasta Valley Wildlife Refuge and the Klamath National Forest. This is high desert terrain, dominated by sage brush and juniper trees. The hikes here are very different from the trails in other parts of the Mount Shasta area. Fantastic views, unusual geology  and plenty of sunshine are hallmarks of hiking the Shasta Valley.
