Squaw Valley Creek Trail/Cabin Creek Trail Hike on Saturday, June 26

The Mt. Shasta Trail Association invites you on an easy to moderate hike on the Squaw Creek Valley Loop Trail (now called Cabin Creek Trail.)

We will walk along the surging waters of the clear creek as well as on the Pacific Crest Trail. We will pass boisterous waterfalls and long rapids and see beautiful wild flowers alongside the moist slopes.This picturesque, wilderness hike in the McCloud area is 8 miles roundtrip with an 1800 foot elevation gain.

Meet 9 am on Saturday, June 26th at the Fish Hatchery in Mount Shasta (central exit and then west away from the actual Mount Shasta). Bring lunch and water. We expect to return by 4 pm. For further questions call Joan Roemer 926-0647.
