Mount Shasta Fourth of July Events, 2011

Mount Shasta and southern Siskiyou County is a great place to be on the Fourth of July weekend. I know many Mount Shasta Trail Association members live in the area and know all about the fun run, the parade, the fireworks, the music, and the booths, but we also have other members from outside the area and we want those folks to come up here also.

So below is information about hikes you can do this weekend, and also the official schedule of events. (Note that much of this is from a recent post on the Northern California Hiking Trails blog about Mount Shasta Fourth of July events.)

Snow-Free Hiking Trails

Some of the links are from this site, and some are from the Mount Shasta Trail Association (I’m on the board of directors).

Lake Siskiyou Trail. Nearby, flat, and plenty of good swimming opportunities.

Black Butte. Here’s an excerpt from 100 Classic Hikes in Northern California, third edition, on hiking the Black Butte Trail.

Castle Dome Trail/Castle Crags.

More Castle Crags area trails.

McCloud Falls. And more pictures of Lower and Middle McCloud Falls.
