Mount McLoughlin dominates the views around the Klamath Basin and Lake of the Woods area and makes a worthy goal for any intrepid snowshoer. There’s nothing like looking down on the massive lakes far below. On a clear day the views stretch deep into northern California, where Mount Shasta appears as a small white triangle in the distance. To the north you can see the rim of Crater Lake. At well over 9,000 feet, this is the tallest landmark for miles and certainly the highest point in the Sky Lakes Wilderness. It was formed by volcanic action and has assumed an almost perfectly conical shape, which makes it pretty simple to navigate.
