Day Hiking Tours

Along the PCT trail.

Along the PCT trail.

Pack a lunch, bring your day pack and come explore the wonders of the second highest mountain in the Cascade Range with us. Hike the varied elevation terrains of 14,179 foot high Mount Shasta, including the Old Ski Bowl Trails, Gray Butte, the Sierra Club Cabin (Horse Camp) and much more. Discover hidden springs, meadows, old growth forests, alpine wildflowers, the mountain’s unique geological history, and the still peace and quiet to be found away from the maddening crowd.

Alpine Lake

Hike to this hidden lake.

Discover the many natural treasures hidden in The Eddys mountain range, Deadfall Lakes, Gumboot Lake, Lake Siskiyou, Box Canyon Dam, Castle Lake, Castle Crags State Park, and more. Enjoy the many enticing waterfalls of the Sacramento and McCloud Rivers and take a dip (if you dare) in their cool, refreshing alpine waters. Let us know what you’d like to experience, and we’ll do our best to help you accomplish that.

We offer a variety of low to medium impact guided hiking trips throughout the Mount Shasta area. Moving slowly over this magnificent terrain allows for a greater awareness of the incredible beauty offered with each step taken. Up the pace with a more challenging hike up to the top of Mount Eddy or Black Butte.

Robin Kohn guided me on Mt Shasta on two separate occasions this summer.  In July she took me part way up the Avalanche Gulch route to 11, 200 feet, as my goal was “to get over 10,000 feet”,  in preparation for another hike later this summer.  She REALLY knows the mountain and the area. Not only has she guided on the mountain for many years, been a ranger for the Forest Service, currently serves on Search and Rescue in Shasta, but also, Robin Kohn  published the book Mount Shasta Guide to Fun.  (highly recommended!) She has many interesting facts to share as well as knowledge that is helpful for mountaineering or hiking in general. Robin’s specific wisdom as it applies to the mountain of Shasta makes you glad that you hired her as your personal, or group, guide.

Robin made a point of really caring about what adventure I was interested in and accommodating the two days this summer that she guided me to fit my requests. In contrast to some other guide services I saw offered, Robin tailors your day that she guides you on to your priorities and tastes for what is fun for you. She did not say to choose from these options that are offered, but instead, having spent a phone call and a follow up e-mail asking questions and collecting information about what Mount Shasta fun I was interested in, she then made suggestions to fit.
