Castle Crags State Park is located in Northern California just six miles south of Dunsmuir on I-5. According to the Parks and Rec web site:
“The park offers swimming and fishing in the Sacramento River, hiking in the back country, and a view of Mount Shasta. There are 76 developed campsites and six environmental campsites.
The park features 28 miles of hiking trails, including a 2.7 mile access trail to Castle Crags Wilderness, part of the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. The Pacific Crest Trail also passes through the park.”

I took this picture about this time last year (in early November). For anyone who will be in the Southern Oregon or Northern California area in the autumn, this is a lovely place for a day hike.
