In the northeast corner of Northern California lies one of America's most spectacular and remote locations...the Shasta Cascade.
Covering an area roughly the size of Ireland, the Shasta Cascade has a vast, unspoiled, landscape of breathtaking vistas, towering volcanoes, alpine ranges, glaciers, waterfalls, whitewater, lush forests and pristine lakes and rivers. California's Shasta Cascade contains seven national forests, eight national and state parks, the Trinity Alps, the northern Sierra Nevada and the California Cascade range which includes two massive glaciated volcanoes, the dormant 14,179 foot/4,322 meters Mt. Shasta and the still active 10,457 foot/3,187 meters Lassen Peak.
Relax, rejuvenate and rediscover nature in the Shasta Cascade region where people get away to relax and experience adventures...from houseboating to mountain biking, hiking to spelunking, gold panning to skiing, as well as golf, fishing, hunting, kayaking, cycling, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, wildlife viewing and sightseeing. The Shasta Cascade Region has something for every interest.
The capital city of this vast region is Redding. At the crossroads of Interstate 5 and California state routes 2999 and 44, Redding is the center for exploration of the Shasta Cascade.
