Mount Shasta

— 2 nights
Mount Shasta is a city in Siskiyou County, California, at about 3600ft above sea level on the flanks of Mount Shasta, a prominent northern California landmark. Take a break from the city and head to McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park and Lava Beds National Monument. And it doesn't end there: take a peaceful walk through Shasta-Trinity National Forest, admire the majestic nature at Castle Crags State Park, explore the galleries of Mt. Shasta Sisson Museum, and contemplate the geological forces at Mount Shasta.
