The Shasta Cascade also boasts scenic drives through various landscapes, with access to some of the region’s most significant attractions.

Shasta, these drives showcase the public lands’ grandeur and are often just a few hours away. These are your public lands- some of the country’s finest- and they are waiting to provide you, your family, and friends with a memorable experience.
