Castle Lake

Castle Lake

Castle Lake is a must-see for outdoor adventurers in northern California, and can get crowded on weekends in the summertime for good reason. The drive up to the lake afford stunning views of Mt. Shasta, and the parking area at the lake affords close lake access for kayakers, where there’s a four-foot hand launch. The Castle Lake Trail itself serves as a great introduction to the Trinity Alps and Mt. Shasta area as a whole. This is also a great day experience when taken in tandem with a hike up to Heart Lake that originates at Castle Lake. In good winters, ice fishermen and ice skaters experience the lake in a whole new way.
