Mount Shasta Trail Association board member Barry Price was featured in a recent article in the Redding Record Searchlight. Barry shared two of his favorite trails in our region: Heart Lake and Girard Ridge:
Barry Price is a semi-retired lawyer and avid hiker who thinks nothing of polishing off 10 miles or so before lunch. So it’s not surprising that he considers the two-mile trek from Castle Lake to Heart Lake “a namby-pamby hike,” despite the spectacular vistas it affords.
“If you want to make it a little more interesting, climb up to the ridge above Heart Lake, along the trail that snakes up through the manzanita,” he said. “You get great views of the Crags from there.”
The piece also discusses hiking along Deadfall Creek and Squaw Valley/Cabin Creek.
