So many people know about big old Mt. Shasta that they pass up this wonderful state park. What a shame. The 6,000-foot glacier-polished crags offer a dramatic backdrop to fish, swim, and hike 26 miles of trails.
Besides accessing the Pacific Crest Trail, hike the 5.5-mile Crags Trail.
There are 76 developed campsites, as well as RV sites.
This rock climbing haven delights serious climbers and is said to be bested in NorCal by only Yosemite National Park.
