This is the intro on Hike Mount Shasta. A wildflower strewn trail along the rim of awesome Mud Creek Canyon with views of Mud Creek Falls. Higher up, the trail provides a chance to explore verdant Clear Creek Springs in a stunning volcanic basin.


This is a 6 mile moderate to strenuous hike that gives spectacular views of the eastern side of Mt. Shasta along with Konwakiton Glacier, Wintun Glacier and Mud Creek Canyon and Mud Creek Falls.

The first .75 miles is a series of switchbacks through an old growth forest of Shasta Red Fir until we reach the clearing. A short hike will take us to the overlook to Mud Creek Canyon. Mud Creek Falls, one mile away will be our destination. We also have a couple of alternative trails once we reach the opening.

Here we will break for lunch, take pictures and enjoy the views.

Carpooling: The trailhead is 13 miles from McCloud, about 8 on forest service roads, while generally OK for most vehicles, they will be dusty. Be kind to those that drive. To reach the trailhead: 3 miles east of the main McCloud intersection turn left on Pilgrim Creek Road and drive 5.3 miles. Left on Forest Road 41N15 for 4.9 miles to Forest Road 31. Stay straight, crossing over Forest Road 31. Go 0.1 miles, stay left for .5 miles, left onto 41N25. Continue 2.2 miles to the trailhead.

You should bring: Hat/sunscreen, good hiking boots, lunch/snacks, lots of water, camera.

We'll either stop in Mt. Shasta or Dunsmuir for a post hike burger and cold drink.
