Home / Things To Do / Outdoor Recreation / Hiking and Biking Trails

Northern California is well known for its backcountry opportunities. Just check any map of the Northstate and virtually anywhere you look is going to be public lands or close to public land. The eight National Forests and numerous wilderness areas in the Shasta Cascade Region all offer opportunities to “get away from it all” and find solace and relaxation.

The Shasta Cascade Region offers an abundance of prime backpacking and hiking areas. Although winter snowfall at higher elevations often affects some of the backpacking trails, there are numerous other hiking opportunities in and around areas like Shasta Lake or Whiskeytown Lake. Be sure to call local ranger stations or other public lands management agencies for up-to-date information. Besides going out on your own, there are several reputable guide services in the Shasta Cascade Region. These can provide a once-in-a-lifetime family experience using either horses or llamas for carrying those camping essentials, or take the avid fisherman or hunter to a remote locale they would never find on their own.

For specific information about public lands, review the public lands pages on this site and contact those agencies which manage the area you are considering for your backcountry experience. We ask that you tread lightly through our area and leave no trace. We are sure that when you come back, you will want to show your family’s next generation the great experiences you enjoyed.
