Horse Camp Professional Review and Guide
"This walk through the forested lower slopes of Mount Shasta is the first portion of the climb to the mountain’s summit, which stands at 14,162 feet. Shasta is volcanic in origin and rises like a near-perfect cone from the flat plains below. Historic Horse Camp, at 7,400 feet, is the usual staging point for the summit attempt and the turnaround point for this hike. The best time to wander in this area is in the fall, between summer heat and heavy snows. Terrain: Dirt path through sparse coniferous forest and along open rocky slopes."
