Castle Dome Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Raking the sky, a jagged protrusion of granite bursts from the slopes above Interstate 5. Needle-sharp spires, bulbous domes, a mania of fantastical granite blades, Castle Crags is unlike anywhere else in California. Add to this views of Mt. Shasta and you have a hike that must be done."
