“A short, moderate run to the Sierra Club stone cabin and views of Mt. Shasta.”— Anne Travels
The forest breaks into meadows and views of Mt. Shasta just before the Sierra Club cabin at the Horse Camp, 0.7 miles later. The area is administered by the Sierra Club; a restroom and water is usually available.
The Horse Camp is a destination along the way for more adventures - most of the people in the area are climbing Mt. Shasta, trekking to Lake Helen, continuing along the Hidden Valley Route to Hidden Valley, or on their way to other adventures high on the slopes of Mt. Shasta.
