Overview

A great singletrack through shaded woods and up a modestly sloped spiral trail to the top of Chamise Hill for views of Shasta Dam, Sacramento River, and Lassen.

Description

This is a great route for runners seeking worthwhile viewpoints. There is lots of shade, a bench halfway from the parking lot, and a picnic table at the peak. However, there are no restroom facilities at the parking lot.

Starting at the parking lot at the end of Flanagan Rd, follow Flanagan Trail until reaching a Y-intersection (a bench is located here). Continue on the Chamise Peak Trail. Stay on the Chamise Peak Trail when you encounter another spur trail that returns to Flanagan Trail. Each of these intersections are marked with white BLM sign poles, with trail names and direction arrows. The trail switchbacks to Chamise Peak, and then spirals around the hill to end at a picnic table on top.

Be sure to enjoy the great views of Shasta Dam, Lassen, and the Sacramento River as you work your way along the spiral as well as on the peak.

Flora & Fauna

Oak (including falling oaks at higher elevations, giving some fall color), manzanita, pine, poison oak.
