A rare view that includes both Castle Crags on the left, and the 3 Shastas to the right. A perspective gained from the top of the Chamise Peak Trail just north of Redding. The Chamise Peak Trail is considered “easy.” I guess that depends on your skills. It’s only about 2.6 miles one way, but it does rise about 600 ft. Most of the trail is wide and smooth, but towards the peak it gets more narrow and rocky.
Still, the results are worth the effort. Follow Flanagan Road off Lake Boulevard west to the end, to the trailhead.
A pleasant hike rewards hikers with new perspectives. The Chamise Peak Trail. It’s Really Redding.
