Northwest side of Mount Shasta
Shasta-Trinity National Forest California


Various unpaved forest service roads approach the northwest side of Mount Shasta. Several trailheads give access to climbers' routes to the summit.

The forest here was devastated in the nineteenth century, by logging on railroad grant lands, and wildfires. It is now a managed forest, a near monoculture of Jeffrey pine.
