Hiking Team: Dave Miller, Rosie Miller
Date: July 8, 2022
We camped at the Mt. Shasta KOA and a short distance away we hiked one mile trail of the Spring Hill Trail. The loop trail ascended about 75 feet through a pine tree grove and colorful wildflowers. At 14,179 feet, the potentially active Mt. Shasta volcano loomed in the background. Mt. Shasta is the fifth largest peak in California. Our short trail was once traveled by pioneers in the 1850’s during the California Gold Rush. The first women reached Mt. Shasta summit in 1856. Since we were just passing through northern California heading to Lassen Volcanic National Park, we did not have time to hike any other closer trails.
