Black Butte Hike

Black Butte Mt Shasta California Weed Shasta City Summit Hike Trek I-5
Just north of the town of Mt Shasta is an opportunity for a great work out with some of the most stunning views of the 14K+ feet mountain. Black butte offers an elevation gain of 1800 feet in some 2.4 miles and one of the more rocky trails to hike. It shouldn’t take you more than 75-90 mins (times may vary) if you are fit and hike often. And black butte isn’t really black 🙂

This was short in September, past the peak of summer. Notice that bald peaks (serious sign of global warming?).
