Everitt Memorial Highway

Description

Set out on a scenic drive on Everitt Memorial Hwy (A-10). You can get about halfway up the mountain by car. Vista points along the way provide plenty of photo opportunities to capture breathtaking views of the Sacramento River Canyon to the southwest, the Eddy Mountains to the west, portions of the Trinity Alps, and glimpses of Mt. Lassen to the south. Stretch your legs at the Everitt Vista Turnout with a short hike through Shasta-Trinity National Forest, where, from a lava rock outcropping, you can see Squaw Valley below the town of McCloud and the upper Sacramento River Canyon. The highway ends about 14 miles from town at Old Ski Bowl Vista and Panther Meadow, where more spectacular scenery awaits. Hiking trails begin nearby for those interested in a longer, more challenging jaunt. Shasta Mountain Guides (530-926-3117) offers various trips, as well as courses in mountaineering, rock climbing, and skiing. Call the Shasta/McCloud Management Unit of U.S.D.A. Forest Service (530-926-4511 or 530-964-2184) for wilderness permits, maps, and more information.
