Mt Shasta pet friendly

 

The best times to visit: spring and fall when temps are moderate. in summer, temps get into the high 90’s and 100’s, pooches paws can get burned on the pavements so beware and prepare if you plan to stay in town during the summer… there are lots of lakes and hiking trail activities to cool off, camping and of course Mt. Shasta.

Lakes

Castle:  From the Visitors Bureau, go west on Lake St. and cross over I-5. You will come to a stop sign at the intersection of Old Stage Rd. which is in front of the Fish Hatchery & Sisson Museum. Turn left onto Old Stage Rd,. In ¼ mile the road will fork. Stay to the right onto W.A. Barr Rd. and continue past the Mount Shasta Resort golf course, cross over the Box Canyon Dam and turn left onto Castle Lake Rd. which is ¼ mile from the dam bridge. Continue on this road for 7 miles and you will arrive at Castle Lake.

McCloud River with three waterfalls

From the Visitors Bureau, go west on Lake St. to I-5 south towards Dunsmuir. Take the Hwy. 89 exit towards McCloud; drive past the town of McCloud and continue 5.5 miles to the “Fowler’s Campground Lower Falls” sign and turn right. The parking area at Lower Falls is 1 mile. You can hike to the Middle Falls and back to the parking area in about 1.5 hours, and hike to the Upper Falls and back to the parking area in about 3 hours. If you don’t wish to hike, you can drive to see the Middle and Upper Falls from the viewing areas off of the campground road which is located about ¼ mile before the parking area.

You can take your dog paddle boarding on Lake Siskiyou

Hiking

Lake Siskiyou Trail

Dogs are allowed anywhere on the network of trails within the Old Ski Bowl ridge line, where even in high summer you can usually walk to the snow. Rover has to be leashed at the Bunny Flat and Panther Meadows rest areas, and the only extended dog-friendly hike is the Gray Butte Trail, a 3.4-mile round trip out of Panther Meadows. This very special path, accessible June into October, crosses a sacred Native American site and takes in otherworldly stands of old-growth fir and mountain hemlocks to reach a saddle with expansive views. At an altitude of 9,129 feet, you’ll both be panting, but oh so glad you came.

Check in with the Mount Shasta Trails Association for other dog friendly hikes in the Mount Shasta region.

Dog Park

Mt Shasta City Park

From the Visitors Bureau, go east on Lake St. to the traffic light at Mt. Shasta Blvd. Go left and continue approximately 1 mile until you see the Mt. Shasta Animal Hospital sign on the right. Turn left at the next street which is Nixon Rd. and then turn right into the Mt. Shasta City Park.

Mount Shasta

Mount Shasta is a very popular attraction. You can view the mountain best by taking the “scenic drive” which is 14 miles long and takes about 30 minutes driving time each way. From the Visitors Bureau, go east on Lake St.; pass the traffic light and continue several blocks where the road curves to the left becoming Everitt Memorial Highway. Continue on Everitt Memorial Highway for 12 miles where you will come to the Bunny Flat parking area and if the road has been cleared of snow, drive another 2 miles to the Old Ski Bowl parking area. The views are outstanding and you will see nature in its grandest.  Dogs must be on leash and are not allowed above 10,000 feet.

Sacred Sites

  1. Hello,
    The information you host about dogs being allowed on Mt Shasta is INCORRECT. Dogs are NOT allowed inside the Mt Shasta Wilderness. You state that dogs are allowed up to 10,000 feet. Please correct your site information so we do not continue to have problems. This past weekend a gentleman became argumentative with a ranger stating that he gathered this “Mt Shasta dog friendly” info off your site. Again, dogs are not allowed anywhere inside the Mt Shasta Wilderness area. There IS however a TON of other dog friendly areas in the Mt Shasta area.
    Thank You!
