    Mt. Shasta Singletrack?

    Hey, Albee from Oregon here, infiltrating the NorCal board to find out about any rides around Mt. Shasta. Looking to do a trip mid-September around Applegate Lake (Ashland, Oregon area), then south to Shasta.

    Any hot tips -- or even lukewarm ones -- are welcomed. Give me the goods and I'll pay you back by showing you around the best trails Eugene has to offer..and we have some great ones!

    Well I know someone that did the PCT from Mccloud both directions (North & South) , got some great fly fishing in too. I'm sure it was poaching, BUT, I hear it was awesome.

    There's killer singletrack up by shasta. I did a loop there with the now-deceased Cecil Johns...we shuttled to the top parking lot, climbed up a fireroad for about a half mile, then descended down, down, down.

    Ask the local LBS to hook you up w/ directions.

    Not sure about trails at Shasta proper, but there are a lot down near Redding and Whiskeytown/French Gulch.

    Zonic,

    Cecil was one of my cousins best friends. He was pretty torn up with the loss of Cecil. My cousin (Jimmy Ruiz) and a bunch on Sunnyvale boys flew to the east coast to attend his funeral. I met him a few times and hes certainly was a cool dude.

    definitely

    definitely poaching. and pretty silly considering the amount of national forest aound McCloud.

    Did he go out of his way to find the only no-biking trail within a days' driving distance?

    Ah-Di-Nah fishing for a week in late April. Fiqured during the week there would be no crowds on the PCT to bother w/. I'm sure there are better spots to ride and doing so during the busy summer season is plain stupid, however givin the time of year, day of week...Said ride was great.
