This is a lovely park. Lush mixed conifers with oaks. Cool old stone fireplaces. Oh, and the incredible Castle Crags, granite towers just below the incomparable Mt Shasta, queen mountain of California. Showers.
We took the easy Rivertrail, walked under I-5, beneath a moving train and across a surprising suspension bridge which swings over the Upper Sacramento River. Really had fun, 3 days and 2 nights. The campfire program was great. The Shasta Wildlife Adoption people brought amazing raptor birds; hawk - owls and beautiful foxes. Neato!
