Trail Challenge 2024 – Yet Atwàm Creek Trail

The Yet Atwàm Creek Trail is new to the Mount Shasta Trail Challenge and an exciting option if you have never been.   This trail has been recently renamed by the Forest Service and is roughly translated to “Mount Shasta Valley”.

The last few miles of road before the Cabin Creek Trailhead are gravel but passable by most vehicles.  There is a restroom at the trailhead but cell coverage is very spotty so download your maps before leaving the town of McCloud.   Dogs and kids will enjoy this relatively flat trail with lots of river access.

This trail is one of the first to clear of snow and is also nice and cool on a hot summer day.  More remote than other trails on the Challenge so you may enjoy some solitude among the trees.   With any luck you may run into a Pacific Crest Trail thru hiker as this trail briefly follows the world famous PCT.   Feel free to ask them where they are from, what is their “Trail Name” and offer some “Trail Magic” like a candy bar.   The PCT bridge is on the great Trail Challenge sticker designed by our partners at Dragon Graphics!

The trail is rated moderate but has various lengths including a longer loop found on AllTrails or other trail apps.   The first 2 miles are easy rolling single track but then include some minor rock scrambling.   To complete for the Trail Challenge go only as far as you feel comfortable.
