    Route Description for Panther Springs Trail

    Treat yourself to unparalleled vistas of the Cascade Range and the Klamath Mountains along the Panther Springs Trail. This fun family adventure wanders along the outskirts of Mount Shasta, offering families and novice hikers the opportunity to indulge in the grandeur of the volcano without needing to tackle a technical trek. The well-marked path is rocky and uneven, so be mindful of your footing. Note the road to the trailhead is subject to seasonal closure, though the trail remains open year-round.

    Setting out from the trailhead off Everitt Memorial Highway, the Panther Springs Trail wanders east, gently descending into the meadowlands. In the spring in summer, the meadow blossoms with vibrant wildflowers, boasting a truly magical scene. No matter the season, you will be rewarded with wonderful views of the Klamath Mountains and Trinity Alps in the west.

    Continue exploring the alpine meadows via the Panther Springs Trail, and you will intersect with the springs that decorate the terrain. You will ultimately reach the trail’s end—turn around and retrace your footing back to the trailhead. If you are seeking a longer hike, meander along the Panther Meadows Trail too.
