“A short trip to a seasonal stream with many options for exploring Mt. Shasta from the end of the trail.”— Anne Travels
Although the official trail ends at Brewer Creek - a seasonal stream that may or may not have water in it - the path turns right to ascend toward Mt. Shasta's cone. From here, the route is unmaintained, and you'll be navigating over uneven terrain. Continue upward for another 2 or so miles to enjoy ever more spectacular views of Mt. Shasta and the surrounding country, even scrambling up to "Butte 9000" as a destination on your run.
