    Route Description for Dog Trail via Bunny Flat

    The Dog Trail via Bunny Flat is an excellent addition to your Shasta-Trinity National Forest hiking itinerary. Easy-going, scenic, and manageable by hikers of most skill levels and ages, this route attracts eager explorers year-round. Visitors can enjoy a more sequestered experience when hiking in the early morning before the horseback riders and dozens of adventurers arrive. Note wintertime treks require a pair of snowshoes or crampons!

    Setting out from the Horse Camp Trailhead, the Dog Trail via Bunny Flat follows the Horse Trail north to an intersection. Here, veer right, and you will be diverted onto the Snow Bunny Trail. This route travels eastwardly along the timberline. As you wander, you will likely be in the company of hikers with their pups, as this is one of the few hikes along the skirts of Mount Shasta that permit four-legged friends. Enjoy the view of Mount Shasta towering above and the Klamath Mountains in the southwest.

    You will ultimately reach the trail’s end at the Green Butte Trailhead. From here, turnaround and retrace your footing along the path back to the trailhead.
