Join us this Memorial Day weekend as we get out of town and head up north! With its seasonal climate and picturesque rugged terrain, Mt. Shasta is the ideal location for a weekend getaway or extended holiday.

We’ll kick off our adventure-filled weekend with some lava tubes on Saturday. Pluto’s Cave Trail, which goes for about 2 miles, is nothing too strenuous, but there are lots of rocks to get around. Since it would be a short excursion, we can explore Yellow Butte afterwards. We’ll go a little off the beaten path for this incredibly scenic hike up a rarely climbed butte to enjoy one of the best views of Mount Shasta and the Shasta Valley.

We’ll have a more relaxed day on Sunday as we check out a few waterfall hikes that are short with little incline. For all of you Wild fans out there, we’ll start off with Burstarse Falls as it is part of the Pacific Crest Trail. We’ll walk through some beautiful scenery along the way to be rewarded with Yosemite-like waterfalls. We’ll finish out the day with a short hike to Castle Lake. This hidden gem is an Alpine sanctuary with wonderful views of Mt. Shasta and the surrounding granite walls.

Our evenings will be spent back at our beautiful, stylish home that provides unobstructed views of beautiful Mount Shasta. This 3-bedroom Tuscan Farmhouse is large, open and full of sunlight. We’ll have dinners together as a family, play games, bust out some karaoke, and even have a dance party!

Monday morning we’ll pack up and tour Lake Shasta Caverns on our way back home. The tour begins with a relaxing short boat ride and drive up to the top of a hill which provides scenic views of Lake Shasta below. Once up top, we’ll have one hour to explore the astonishingly beautiful caverns.

For those of you who like adventure, hiking, and trying out new places, this is the trip for you!
