Yreka/Klamath River Country is truly defined by its combination of the California Gold Rush history and the natural wonder of the Klamath River. Flowing from Oregon to the Pacific Ocean, it is the predominant river in the region. This river, and its tributary rivers and streams provide some of the most exciting rafting, canoeing, kayaking, and fishing 68th Scott Valley Pleasure Park Rodeo Etna, 530-467-3515 in Northern California. The town of Yreka was born out of one of the largest Gold strikes in California history and is still shaped by this discovery. Today, a comprehensive sampling of gold collected from the area is on Blue Grass Festival display at the Siskiyou County Courthouse, where some of the nuggets measure in excess of six inches in Etna, 530-467-4144 diameter. Besides gold, logging helped carve out the rich cultural history of the area, where the Yreka Western Railway continues to define the rugged mountain logging town of more than 100 years ago. Golden Siskiyou Fair The Railroad now guides passengers on a scenic, hour-long journey from Yreka, through beautiful Yreka, 530-842-2767 Shasta Valley, to Montague, where visitors can enjoy a stroll through this historic ranching and Yreka Holiday Parade logging town.

Now known for its gracious hospitality, golden history, and many outdoor splendors, as with many portions of Northern California, the lure of gold is what brought settlement to the area. Even before the gold rush of 1849, pirate Bill English and his rogue crew discovered gold on Trinity River near Big Bar and left the area with their purses full. It was the eventual discovery of gold in 1849 that brought thousands of miners to the area and the construction of such towns as Weaverville and Lewiston. Most of the county is forest land and some of the most beautiful scenery and natural lakes are found in the Trinity Alps Wilderness, so named because its snow-capped peaks are reminiscent of the Swiss Alps. The Trinity River, designated as a wild and scenic river, provides opportunities for kayaking, rafting, fishing, and swimming. Resorts in the Coffee Creek area, just north of Trinity Lake, offer horseback riding, cabins, and recreational activities. Weaverville, located along Highway 299, provides a nostalgic step back in time. One of the most interesting portions of Weaverville’s history comes from the 1800’s, when as many Chinese men and women inhabited the region as did Euro-Americans; all of them searching for the abundant gold found nearby. In 1852 they established a Taoist place of worship, which burned in 1873. The new temple, Joss House in the state park of the same name, dedicated in April of 1875, has since been in continuous use as a place of worship. Hayfork, reminiscent of a frontier village, is home to the nearby Natural Bridge, which is both historically interesting and an unusual natural phenomenon with strong links to the native Americans which once inhabited the area. Natural Bridge is a limestone arch thrown across a narrow ravine by nature. Lewiston offers history buffs great opportunities to explore, along with wonderful photographic opportunities including twenty of the town’s structures which are listed in the National Registry of Historic Places. If jagged peaks over 9,000 feet tall, saw tooth ridges, alpine meadows, deep glaciated canyons, and more than 50 mountain lakes and streams are what you’re looking for; the Sawtooth Ridge, Margo Gray Trinity Alps Wilderness is waiting for you. This 500,000acre wilderness area is the second largest in California and one of the largest in the United States. Trinity Lake, the third largest lake in California, has 147 miles of shoreline and is uncrowded even during the summer peak months. The many secluded, tree-lined coves are perfect for anglers and houseboaters. Its crystal clear waters contain a variety of prize fish including trout, smallmouth bass, and King Salmon. Lewiston Lake offers boating, fishing, swimming and camping experiences, while marinas on Trinity Lake also rent houseboats and other types of watercraft. In Southern Trinity County, Ruth Lake offers similar boating and fishing opportunities. All this and more is perfect for a relaxing vacation of a lifetime or just a few days away from the stress of urban life.

Shasta Lake, the largest in California, offers a wide variety of vacation experiences. The lake is formed by one of the engineering marvels of the 20th century, Shasta Dam, the tallest center overflow dam in the world. If every family in America had a swimming pool, the water held back by the dam would be enough to fill every one of them! Dam tours are available daily and include a ride into the heart of the dam in a forty-story elevator. Shasta Lake also has the distinction of being known as the “Houseboat Capitol of the World,” offering, from a basic camper on pontoons, to the equivalent of a luxury condominium that floats. Besides houseboating, several lakeside resorts, RV parks, and B&B Inns provide a relaxing vacation alternative to get away from it all.

Sutter Buttes 8 | Shasta Cascade Visitors Guide 2011

Oroville was an early gold mining camp and was the home to hundreds of ambitious miners along the Feather River. In 1968 Lake Oroville was created, and almost overnight it became one of California’s most recognized recreation lakes. Several local attractions are of national significance, such as Feather Falls, the sixth highest waterfall in the United States, and the Sutter Buttes, the world’s smallest mountain range. Engineering marvels include the nation’s tallest earthen dam at Lake Oroville. Before the coming of Euro-Americans, Maidu Indians roamed the hills and fished the streams and rivers of the Feather River country. In 1848 their life changed dramatically with the European discovery of gold on the Middle Fork of the Feather River, and subsequent onslaught of settlers to the area.

VOLCANIC VOLCANIC LEGACY SCENIC BYWAY – ALL AMERICAN ROAD One of just 37 All American Roads in the United States, the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway connects Lassen Volcanic National Park in Northern California and Crater Lake National Park in Southern Oregon. The volcanic activity of the Cascade Range has created unique geological formations that can only be seen in this part of America. The byway travels through dense forests, across broad wetlands, pastoral grasslands, along clear swift streams and through massive farms and ranches. These wide open-spaces make this area adjacent to the byway an ideal setting for hiking adventures, great fishing and whitewater boating. Enjoy great scenery and a chance to experience a slower, quieter pace of life. Communities along the byway are eager to tell their story and share their uniqueness with you. The Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway is about blue skies, virgin forests, clear lakes and streams, and uncrowded open-spaces. A few days along the byway could be one of your most memorable vacations, one that excites your senses, refreshes your soul and offers the possibility of taking your breath away at every bend in the road.

Lake Almanor/Chester A Recreational Paradise The southern most point of the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway is the Chester/Lake Almanor basin, where Highways 89, 32, 36, and 44 converge. It is also where the Sierra Mountain Range meets the Cascade Range. Although originally developed as a logging and sawmill community, Chester’s charm now comes from quaint B&B’s and 1950’s style motels. Chester provides the largest base of lodging opportunities on the southern portion of the byway. Westwood is just to the east of Lake Almanor/Chester. It has the unique distinction of once having been the largest company lumber town in the west. A 24 foot tall statue of the legendary logger Paul Bunyan honors the town’s logging heritage. The road north out of Westwood provides wintertime access to the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway, as the road through Lassen Volcanic National Park is usually closed from November to May. Just a few miles off the byway and east of Westwood is Susanville. The cliffs and gorge of the Susan River flank its western limits and is the eastern end of the Bizz Johnson Recreational Trail. This rail to trail conversion is considered by many to be one of the most exhilarating trails in Northern California.

Lassen Volcanic National Park Volcanic History and Scenic Wonder The very existence of Lassen Volcanic National Park is linked to a loud awakening of Lassen Peak in 1914. This was a beginning of a seven-year cycle of sporadic volcanic outbursts with the major eruption occurring on May 19, 1915, with a massive collapse of the summit crater.


L E G A C Y S C E N I C B Y WAY Three days later a great explosion blasted out a new crater. The area was designated a National Park in 1916 because of its significance as an active volcanic landscape. The park is a compact laboratory of volcanic phenomena and associated thermal features. Several groups of hot springs and fumaroles remain as remnants of this volcanic activity. In an era that all too often ignores the importance of nature and special places, Lassen remains a sacred and enchanting destination. It is truly an enriching national park experience.

Old Station / McCloud Creek, Rivers and Waterfalls This section of the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway begins at the northern edge of Lassen Volcanic National Park and is a continuation of the volcanic terrain from Lassen. Old Station served as a stagecoach stop and military post in the early part of California’s settlement. By the 1860’s it was known that this area had a unique geological history. Just north of Old Station is Subway Cave offering an opportunity to walk through a 1/3 mile long volcanic lava tube. Further along Hwy. 89 is Hat Creek, considered by many as one of the best trout flyfishing streams in the country. Numerous access points, as well as campgrounds, provide the makings of a great summer vacation. Hat Creek virtually rises right out of the ground. These cold spring fed waters are perfect habitat for trout. The Intersection of Hwy. 89 and 299 allows for several optional side trips to the communities of Burney and Fall River Mills. North of the Intersection about six miles is what Theodore Roosevelt called the “eighth wonder of the world” McArthur Burney Falls State Park. The never-changing water volume over the falls is what makes it so unusual. The sources of most of its water are springs, just a 1/2 mile above the falls. The scenic drive continues north on Hwy. 89 to the McCloud River and a chance to see three spectacular water falls – Lower, Middle and Upper McCloud Falls. Just to the west is McCloud, a great stopover or even a place to enjoy the evening.

HIKING, BACKPACKING, BACKCOUNTRY GUIDE SERVICES & OUTFITTERS Northern California is well known for its backcountry opportunities. Just check any map of the Northstate and virtually anywhere you look is going to be public lands or close to public land. The eight National Forests and numerous wilderness areas in the Shasta Cascade Region all offer opportunities to “get away from it all” and find solace and relaxation. The Shasta Cascade Region offers an abundance of prime backpacking and hiking areas. Although winter snowfall at higher elevations often affects some of the backpacking trails, there are numerous other hiking opportunities in and around areas like Shasta Lake or Whiskeytown Lake. Be sure to call local ranger stations or other public lands management agencies for up-to-date information. Besides going out on your own, there are several reputable guide services in the Shasta Cascade Region. These can provide a once-in-a-lifetime family experience using either horses or llamas for carrying those camping essentials, or take the avid fisherman or hunter to a remote locale they would never find on their own. For specific information about public lands, review the public lands pages on page 32 of this guide and contact those agencies which manage the area you are considering for your backcountry experience. We ask that you tread lightly through our area and leave no trace. We are sure that when you come back, you will want to show your family’s next generation the great experiences you enjoyed.

FISHING/HUNTING GUIDE SERVICES Northern California fishing offers a wide variety of opportunities on rivers, streams and lakes. Some of the best fishing in California is located in the Shasta Cascade Region and whether it’s flyfishing for trout, seeking out the best cove for bass, or spin fishing on a mountain river, virtually anyone can enjoy casting a line. Lakes dominate the Northstate and are full of a variety of species to include bass, trout, catfish, kokanee, salmon, steelhead, sturgeon, and sunfish. Bass fishermen love Shasta Lake as it’s the largest manmade lake in the state and has plenty of natural and planted structures for the game fish to prosper. Trinity Lake is known for its smallmouth bass and has even produced a state record fish. The region is also home to some of the best flyfishing in California, including a 9 mile stretch of the McCloud River below Lake McCloud, a 3.5 mile stretch of Lower Hat Creek east of Burney, and a 23 mile section of Fall River near Fall River Mills. The region is home to some of the best flyfishing in California, including the world renown Sacramento River, which is now rated one of the top 5 tail water trout fisheries in the world, as it goes through Redding. Trout and salmon prosper on the cool waters of Shasta Lake, causing fishermen to do extremely well. The Upper Sacramento River, known as a blue ribbon trout fishery, draws flyfishermen from all over the west. Almost 40 miles of river are available from Box Canyon to Shasta

Lake and produce trout up to 18 inches. The Trinity River is known for its excellent flyfishing for both trout and steelhead. In season, the salmon fishing is unbelievable and there are many times when it’s hard to not catch a salmon in the Trinity River. Lewiston Lake and Trinity Lake each afford numerous opportunities for both bank fishing and trolling, while numerous high alpine lakes in the Trinity Alps provide the fishermen willing to take a hike with the opportunity to catch an elusive brook trout or rainbow. The Klamath River is world renown for trout, steelhead, and salmon fishing. There are numerous spots to stop from Willow Creek north on Highway 96, all the way up to Happy Camp and eventually on the Interstate 5. Several quality guide services using drift boats can take the dedicated fisherman out for an experience of a lifetime. Other fishing experiences worth noting are in the eastern portion of the Shasta Cascade Region. They

include Eagle Lake with its world famous Eagle Lake trout. This trout is found nowhere else, and because of the unusual chemistry of the water in Eagle Lake, it is the only trout that can survive there. Further south, Lake Almanor, Antelope Lake, Frenchman Reservoir, and Bucks Lake are just a few of the mountain lakes which will provide unforgettable fishing experiences. Several of these lakes have marinas or resorts which rent fishing boats. It’s best to check locally or with the Shasta Cascade Wonderland Association for information on fishing any of these lakes, or view an up-to-date weekly fishing report at www.shastacascade. com/fishing. Whether it’s fishing close to the freeway such as the conveniently close Whiskeytown Lake or Shasta Lake, the remote reaches of Ruth Lake, or the ever popular Lake Oroville, there is a fishing experience awaiting you in the Shasta Cascade Region.

Redding commissioned world famous Spanish architect, Santiago Calatrava (architect for the Athens Olympic Stadium) to design a pedestrian bridge over the Sacramento River, linking the Turtle Bay Exploration Park’s museum, to its new Arboretum and Gardens, and as a trailhead for Redding’s extensive Sacramento River National Recreation Trail. One of design’s criteria given Calatrava, was to design a bridge that would not impact the nearby spawning grounds for the winter run Chinook salmon. The 710-foot-long bridge spans the river without footings in the water. Its walking surface is translucent glass, so as not to cast a dark shadow on the spawning gravels below the bridge. This design achieved this goal with an inclined 21 story tall pylon built on the north bank of the river that supports the entire river span. Also, because of the exact north-south orientation of the bridge, the pylon serves as the upright element of a sundial, making it the worlds tallest sundial. See Ad on page 30-31.

FORESTS, PARKS & PUBLIC LANDS PUBLIC LANDS The public’s access to state and national parks, National Forests and other public lands in America’s west is unprecedented in the civilized world. In the Shasta Cascade Region, vast tracks of public lands are easily accessible and offer some of California’s greatest national treasures. The region is known for its wild and scenic rivers, three major lakes offering the best houseboating in the world, and thousands of square miles of open spaces providing great opportunities for hiking, rafting or kayaking, fishing, camping, or just getting away from the “maddening” crowd. The Shasta Cascade offers some of California’s most scenic drives traversing vast landscapes and providing access to some of the region’s most significant attractions. From the unique volcanic features of Lassen Volcanic National Park to McArthur-Burney Falls State Park, and on to the magnificent Mt. Shasta, these scenic drives showcase the public lands’ grandeur and are often just a few hours drive away. These are your public lands, some of the country’s finest and they are waiting to provide you and your family with a memorable experience. Be sure to visit the new section of the Shasta Cascade’s website highlighting public lands www.shastacascade.com/erog. The new area of the website includes electronic recreational opportunity guides (Erogs) for the National Forest, state and national parks.

Few travelers are familiar with the three park units located in the Shasta Cascade Region, yet these sites contain nationally significant scenic and cultural resources, which are of comparable quality to the more famous parks in the National Park system. The natural areas offer fascinating variety-lush forests, past and current volcanic activity, fields of wildflowers, and natural and man-made lakes. They serve as precious habitat for wild creatures, bears, mountain lions, foxes, deer, eagles, owls and waterfowl. These parks offer both natural beauty and historical interest. Even during the summer months, they are not heavily used, so you may explore them and learn their secrets at your leisure.

They are called Scenic Byways and are a part of the National Forests. I would really love to take a drive one Saturday and check them out. I could even mark some tasks off of my “Life List.” Think of the adventure we could have! Love, Joey
