Like Mount Rainier to the north, the massive Mount Shasta, was formed by ice and fire and is a volcano at rest. It shoulders 8 magnificent glaciers and dominates the region's landscape. Meadows of wildflowers and groves of Shasta Red Fir characterize its flanks. Abundant in mystic lore, trails, and opportunities for peak experiences, the beloved mountain has something for everyone.
Early explorers and expeditions included: Spanish explorer Fray Narcisco Duran who published the first recorded sighting (1817); the Wilkes expedition who published the first known illustration (1841); Captain John Fremont (1947); and Robert S. Williamson, railroad topographer (1855).
