Mount Shasta City Park


Located at the base of the mountain for which it is named, Mount Shasta is a charming little town prepared to help you enjoy the area's natural splendor. At the north end of town, you'll see the headwaters of the Sacramento River at Mount Shasta City Park. The river, which flows 270 miles from here to the Golden Gate in San Francisco, originates in the ice-cold waters of Big Spring, issuing from a lava tube deep within Mt. Shasta. That water flows into Cold Creek here in the park, the Sacramento River's most northerly feeder stream. The park has hiking trails, picnic tables, playgrounds, and public rest rooms, all free.
