Tips from locals
McCloud Falls has three separate falls to visit: Lower, Middle and Upper. Hikes for all abilities can be found here.
The third falls at this location can be hiked to (up a steep hill) from Middle Falls, or driven to. It is just a 2 min. stroll from the Upper Falls parking lot. There are latrines and picnic tables by the stream next to the parking lot.
Gorgeous waterfalls. One of three on this trail. After head into town for dinner at the brewery.
A side trip on the way to Mt. Shasta is Fowler Falls. Beautiful area with hiking trail betweenUpper & Lowed falls.
Three beautiful waterfalls about one mile of each other. A great spot to camp, picnic, swim or fish.

“Pluto's Cave is a partially collapsed lava tube on the northern outskirts of Mount Shasta. Its main entrance is located close to the 99-97 Cutoff. A pretty loop through interesting, volcanic, high desert terrain. Below ground, one can explore Pluto Cave, an ancient lava tube that extends over a mile under ground.”

“Fun park with a cool vibe, many different walks of life here, just doing there thing in funky Mt Shasta. The real attraction is the spring headwaters of the upper Sacramento River, some considering it to be sacred healing waters (some just filling up their water bottles due to it being perfect spring water ;). Cool playground for kids, an excellent spot to take a picnic.”
