Description

The Lake Siskiyou Trail is a nice, scenic trail around Lake Siskiyou near the city of Mount Shasta. The trail surface is hardpack with seasonal duff covering. The trail features spectacular views of Lake Siskiyou, the dam, and surrounding mountains. The Wagon Creek Bridge is a really nice suspension bridge. The trail is connects to the campground as well.

The trail is open year round but will be covered by snow in most winters. That said, it can be really fun on a fat bike with the right kind of snow. Also, the bridges over the Sacramento River inlet are taken down in the fall and put back up in the spring. The trail is used by hikers, dog walkers, runners, and horses, so be careful.

Directions: From the Central Mt. Shasta exit on I-5, go 0.2 miles west to the intersection of Hatchery Road and Old Stage Road. Turn left and go 0.3 mile to a fork in the road. Stay to the right on W.A. Barr Road. For the north shore segment, go 0.7 miles and turn right on North Shore Road. Go 1.0 miles and either park along the road or go farther along the road to designated parking areas. For the south shore segment, go 1.4 miles on W.A. Barr Road and either park next to the tennis courts or go 0.6 miles further and park in the designated area on the right across from the road to Castle Lake.
