Kanaka Peak Loop Professional Review and Guide

"The splendid views from the summit of 2616-foot Kanaka Peak are well worth the physical effort. Make sure you’re clad in the proper footwear and have a set of trekking poles for the steep, ankle-twisting, knee-wrenching descent off the top of the mountain. The 6.5-mile Kanaka Peak Loop passes through a mixture of black oak woodland and mixed conifer forest, with small pockets of lush riparian foliage lining the banks of Paige Boulder Creek and its tributaries. The dense vegetation clears enough on top of Kanaka Peak to allow the wide-ranging vistas that span from Mt. Shasta in the north down the Sacramento Valley to the south. If possible, pick a day right after a storm for the best views, when cleansing rains have cleared the air of dust and pollutants."
