Elsa Rupp Nature Trail and Mount Shasta Trail Challenge

The Elsa Rupp Nature Trail is a local favorite making its debut in the Mount Shasta Trail Challenge this year.   The trail takes you quickly into a peaceful forest complete with babbling brook.  An easy trail with almost no elevation gain but it is not quite ADA accessible due to some narrow bridges.Big Springs Creek is crystal clear and passes right through this park on the way to the Mount Shasta Fishery.   When you’re done with the trail, walk across the road and see where all this water is headed.   The hatchery is very unique and kids love it!


Dogs are welcome on leash.Please use caution on the bridges and the roots which can trip you.The trail and parking lot can be a little waterlogged coming out of the winter so be careful to stay on dry ground.“
