Castle Crags Park

Notes by piero scaruffi | Other California destinations | California hikes
The park, famous for its rock formations, is located about 10 kms south of Dunsmuir on highway 5, about 20 minutes south of Mt Shasta.

A simple hike is to park at the Vista Point, walk to the Vista Point, then descent via the Kettlebelly trail to the Pacific Crest trail, turn left twice (past the Root Creek trail) and turn right into the Crags trail. This dead end at the base of Castle Dome (not an easy climb). One can return via Bob's Hat trail.
