    Route Description for Mount Shasta City Park Loop

    Indulge in the commanding views of Mount Shasta from the Mount Shasta City Park Loop. This short but scenic trail yields amazing scenery, including mountain views, vibrant flora, lush forestlands, and beautiful creeks. Note: there are many paths in this park, so we encourage the use of the trail GPS to easily navigate the network of routes. Open year-round; this path is muddy in the spring and slippery in the winter, so wear the proper footwear.

    Setting out from the trailhead, the Mount Shasta City Park Loop follows the rightmost trail around the park's perimeter. Hiking into the woodlands, you will cross a footbridge over Big Springs Creek, heading eastwardly. Soon the path will redirect you south, running parallel to the Freeway, so you will likely hear the sounds of vehicle traffic. Enjoy the shade of the tree canopy, and you will curve northeastward, back over the creek.

    At this point, the trail will guide you into the meadowlands, which expose views of Mount Shasta before delivering you back to the trailhead, marking the end of your adventure.
