On a sunny day when the gleaming glacial-melt waters of Castle Lake lie still under the backdrop of Mount Shasta, the views from this short trail are worth a hundred-mile hike. Not far from Mount Shasta City, the Klamath Mountain stroll offers plenty of options, from a 1-mile out-and-back along the lake’s western shore to a backpacking trip down to Castle Crags.
