Make a spectacular circumnavigation by mountain bike, or just bike a piece of the route.
At 14,162 feet, Mt. Shasta isn’t California’s tallest peak, but it might as well be. The volcanic peak stands by itself and is often clearly visible for more than 100 miles. Your first sighting of Mt. Shasta is like the shock of new love. Naturalist John Muir put it best: “When I first caught sight of it I was 50 miles away and afoot, alone, and weary. Yet all my blood turned to wine, and I have not been weary since.” Once home to lumberjacks, this lovely snowcapped peak has become something of a magnet for New Age mystics, drawn by the peak’s purported cosmic properties.
