5 MUST SEE, DO
» Eagle Refuge
Witness the largest gathering of bald eagles in the lower 48 states each winter at the Lower Klamath and Tule Lake national wildlife refuges, north of Mount Shasta.
» Days on the Lake
Rent a spacious houseboat and spend a few days exploring the almost limitless coves and bays of Lake Shasta, with its 365 miles of shoreline.
» Crystal Persuasion
Experience Mount Shasta City’s metaphysical side by shopping for a Lemurian Seed Crystal at The Crystal Room. But be warned that they won’t let it go home with you unless it’s a “good energy match.”
» Castle Crags
Do some exquisite hiking among the soaring granite battlements of Castle Crags State Park. It’s right off Interstate 5 a few miles south of Mount Shasta.
» Sundial Bridge
Stroll across the Sundial Bridge, Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava’s now-iconic cantilever pedestrian span across the Sacramento River, the centerpiece of the worthwhile Turtle Bay Exploration Park in Redding.
