The Cascades are an immense West Coast mountain range, containing some of the most beautiful terrain in the West. Beginning in northern California, the range stretches north through Oregon and Washington to the Canadian border. The section in California is known as the Shasta Cascades, so called because the prominent Mount Shasta is visible throughout much of north central California.
The Shasta Cascades are the centerpiece of a vast untapped area of northern California. Lovers of the outdoors can explore the rivers, mountains, and forests of this pristine area, from Redding north to the border north, east, and south.
The Shasta Cascades are located in northern California. For more information on the Cascades, select an area of interest from the list to the left.
