California’s northeast corner—sometimes referred to as "Upstate California"—is an outdoor-lover’s paradise, with scenic volcanoes, hushed forests, and trout-filled rivers. Expect to find houseboats anchored in cool lakes, countless campgrounds, and inviting trails for hiking and mountain biking. All this, plus friendly towns like Chico and McCloud, and charming rural farms in fertile lands near the Upper Sacramento River. Redding, the region’s largest city, makes a good base, and Lassen Volcanic National Park and majestic Mount Shasta are just two of the many essential places to visit.
