Almost unfathomable in size, this 2.1 million acre forest in the north-east corner of California represents more than 20% of the state and is roughly the size of Belgium!
The jewel of the region is Mt. Shasta. Visible from more than 100 miles and over 14,000 feet high, it is technically a live volcano.
With amazing and numerous scenic by-ways, the driving experience will thrill and humble you. Redding to the south, is the largest city in the area and the gateway to Shasta Trinity National Recreation Area, a mecca for outdoor activities from camping to backpacking; horseback riding to mountain biking.
This is also the home to Shasta Lake, the largest in California, formed by Shasta dam which has a spillway three times as high as Niagara Falls.
This wildnerness area is a truly unique experience, quiet open roads, breathtaking scenery and far away from the crowds. Call us to discuss how we can incorporate this undiscovered gem of a region in your road trip..
Where you stay is the heart of your holiday. Location reigns supreme but do you prefer resort facilities or unique and boutique? Historic and old world or modern and shiny?

We would rate the Bellagio as one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Fabulous, glitzy, exciting. We loved having breakfast at the poolside café... one of our best experiences ever. If it hadn't been for you we wouldn't have had the suite or cabana and we loved them. We both agreed that the hotel was the best for us and you had suggested that so well done!Leonore & Mike Rumford
