Celebrating 50 years of the PCT
as a National Scenic Trail.

Mt. Shasta Trail Town Celebration

On July 21 in downtown Mt. Shasta, California, we’ll be celebrating the launch of Mt. Shasta as an official Pacific Crest Trail Town!

One of the great things about the Pacific Crest Trail is the many wonderful towns it passes near–communities that offer rest and resupply to long-distance hikers on the trail, and provide access to not only the PCT but a variety of other trail-based outdoor recreation for the public. Come join us on July 21 to celebrate this new PCT trail town and learn more about the PCT and other outdoor recreation opportunities near Mt. Shasta and in Siskiyou County. Events will include…

8:00 a.m. – Noon
