"This is a surprisingly long trail up Spring Hill, a prominent butte at the north end of Mount Shasta City. Vistas on the summit plateau offer great views of the Trinity Divide, Strawberry Valley, and Mount Shasta. The Spring Hill Trail is right on the north edge of Mount Shasta City. The hill is visible from most of town, a seemingly younger, shorter sibling to conical Black Butte and mighty Mount Shasta. Despite its prominence above the town, many do not know that a trail meanders up to the summit, offering great views along the way. Looking at the diminutive size of Spring Hill, you would not expect it would take a long trail to reach the summit but, surprisingly, the trail is almost 3 miles round-trip. The length is a result of the long, lazy switchbacks that are used to lessen the trail’s grade. The recent addition of a 0.4-mile loop around the summit plateau lengthened it further, and added a great vista. The quick trailhead access and the easy trail are ideal for a swift but enjoyable trip." Read more
