Happenings in Mt. Shasta Area~South Gate & Beyond

There’s been a whole lot of stuff going on here in the North State.

New Bridge over Lake Siskiyou

Lake Siskiyou trail’s one of a kind bridge was designed by the same man who designed the Sundial Bridge in Redding, Ca. A lot of the credit for the bridge and the trail belongs to Mount Shasta landscape architect Tom Hesseldenz, who did all the original planning for the trail project, including bridges, parking areas and signage. Bridge planned to be completed by winter.
