streams. Prefer a bed? Backtrack
to Gordon's Rim Rock
Ranch to sleep in a cozy cabin
or motel-like room.
Keep heading north through
a sea of pines to McArthurBurney
Falls State Park.

Falls, a misty cataract that
gushes 100 million gallons of

turquoise water every day.
Point your rig northeast on
Hwy. 299-you're headed to
California's quietest corner,
where cowboys still ride the
range. Drive 90 miles through
boundless meadows and ranchlands,
then sit down for burgers,
fries, and local gossip at Auction
Yard Cafe in Alturas. Take a
Lassen Volcanic
National Park
peek at the atmospheric Niles
Hotel saloon, then wind uphill
into the Warner Mountains.
Sleep in the pines at Mill Creek
Falls Campground and rise early
for a walk to shimmering Mill
Creek Falls.
Backtrack to Alturas and
drive 60 miles west to Lava
Beds National Monument,
where volcanic tablelands
are dotted with hundreds of
lava tube caves. Duck, twist,
and crawl your way through a
dozen or more off Cave Loop
Road, then camp at Indian Well
Campground (bring binoculars
to scan for lazuli bunting).
Two hours of twists and
curves brings you to Mount
Shasta City, with its
unimpeded vista of Mount
Shasta's massive volcanic cone.
Savor that view with a cappuccino
at Seven Suns before
pushing on to Castle Crags
State Park, where towering
granite pinnacles poke through
the sky. Hike the challenging
Crags Trail to Castle Dome's
base or opt for a gentler walk
alongside Root Creek.
As you drive past Lake
McArthur-Burney Falls
Shasta, brake for one more
natural wonder: Lake Shasta
Caverns are studded with
crystals, multi-colored fl uted
columns, and fl owstone
deposits cascading in miniature
waterfalls. Take a guided
tour-which includes a scenic
boat ride across the lake-then
cruise back to Redding and
daydream about driving this
loop all over again.
