The public’s access to state and national parks, national forests, and other public lands in America’s west is unprecedented. In the Shasta Cascade region, vast areas of public lands are easily enjoyed and offer some of California’s greatest treasures. The region is known for its wild and scenic rivers, three major lakes offering the best houseboating in the world, and thousands of miles of open space, providing great opportunities for hiking, rafting, kayaking, fishing, camping, or just getting away from the crowd. The Shasta Cascade also boasts scenic drives through various landscapes, with access to some of the region’s most significant attractions. From the unique volcanic features of Lassen Volcanic National Park to McArthur-Burney Falls State Park, and on to magnificent Mt. Shasta, these drives showcase the public lands’ grandeur and are often just a few hours away. These are your public lands- some of the country’s finest- and they are waiting to provide you, your family, and friends with a memorable experience.
It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit. -Robert Louis Stevenson
