Mount Shasta reviews
Driving up to Mt. Shasta is a pleasure, in itself (take Everett Memorial Hwy straight up to Bunny Flat which puts you right at the base). There are several turnouts to view the surrounding area... more »
The awesome view of Mount Shasta is visible from miles and miles away. If you want to hike on the mountain, many trails are available. Some trails are wooded, and some trails are more in the sun. more »
Mt Shasta is an amazingly beautiful place. It dominates the landscape for miles. To be sure Shasta is not an easy mountain to climb, yet it attracts many, many people and many first timers to mountaineering. Likely because of its elevation and its popular nontechnical routes. It does get very crowded even during the week.
Perhaps because I live soo close to Half Dome & El cap they do not move me as much as My. Shasta. Speaks to my soul this one does 🥰
