Winter Adventure in Siskiyou

One of the great things about escaping to Siskiyou this time of year is the variety of activities you can enjoy. Your winter adventure awaits and to help plan your trip, we’ve complied a list of some of our favorite things to do this time of year.

Hike

Winter is the perfect time to explore our local waterfalls at their peak fullness. Hedge Creek Falls is an easy hike, less than a mile long where you can do just that. Behind the waterfall, there is a small cave allowing visitors to get a different perspective of the cascading water. Hedge Creek flows into the Sacramento River and offers a viewing platform over the water providing a breathtaking view of Mt. Shasta.

Looking for the fluffy white stuff? Make your way to the Old Ski Bowl Trail, which is Mount Shasta’s first ski resort. It operated from 1958 until 1978 when an avalanche took out the lifts. Even in a low-snow year, snow lingers at these altitudes. The road to the parking lot is currently closed, but you can still get here – just be prepared to hike in the snow for about a mile!

Unique Dining

Siskiyou’s newest restaurant M5 – Five Marys Burgerhouse, Bar & Grill is worth the trip alone this winter. The burgerhouse just opened and offers rustic comfort food using beef, pork and lamb right from Five Marys Farms. You’ll feel welcomed the minute you arrive. We recommend getting one of their juicy steaks!

Treat Yourself

Feel right at home at Sacred Mountain Spa this winter. The warm and welcoming spa is located just a few minutes away from the base of Mount Shasta. Unwind and relax with a healing massage or pamper yourself with a manicure/pedicure, or facial.

Ice Fishing

Make your way to Castle Lake to experience one of California’s best ice fishing locations. The 47-acre lake is 120 feet deep next to a steep rock wall. Ice fishing here is truly a rewarding experience! Don’t forget to dress warmly and bring a lawn chair.

Birdwatching

Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuge is one of the best spots for birdwatching in Siskiyou. The volcanic wonderland is home to nearly 500 species of wildlife including waterfowl, shorebirds, songbirds, raptors, big game, small mammals and aquatic life. Hundreds of bald eagles also migrate to the area from November through April.
