Description:
Castle Crags State Park is named for 6,000-feet tall glacier-polished crags and offers fishing in the Sacramento River, hiking in the back country, and spectacular views of Mt. Shasta, the grey rocks and, of course, the crags.

Whether you need breathtaking views or just a pleasant walk in nature, Castle Crags has something for you. There are more than 28 miles of trail, including the rigorous 6.5-mile Castle Dome Trail. You gain just over 2,000 feet in elevation and the rare chance to see the unparalleled view of Mt. Shasta and the surrounding valleys. If you aren’t up for the strenuous hike to the dome, there is an accessible paved 0.25-mile trail to Vista Point where you can still get an excellent view of the park features.
