Minutes from Shasta Starr ’s Kitchen Door
About a 3 minute walk from Shasta Starr Ranch B & B’s kitchen door is the 10 acre
Larry Wehmeyer Environmental area. Go down the old pool stairs on the south side of the property through the opening in the gate, through the playground to the other side of the parking lot. Pass by the picnic benches and follow trails through a beautiful forest with wetlands, a pond, bridges over streams, benches, and quiet. It’s a great short hike during winter or summer and you don’t have to drive to get there. It’s dog friendly and an easy walk for families.
If you want more exercise when you get back try our volley ball or badminton.
If you want to walk further you can go through the gate on the south side of the area to North Shore Drive, turn right and follow the road to Lake Siskiyou, about a mile away. There is a trail almost all the way around the lake. It’s approximately 7 miles round trip when the seasonal bridges across the delta are in. The elevation gain is negligible so it’s an easy hike. Or you can drive to the lake parking lot and walk the trail from there. It’s about a mile away going south on W A Barr Road and easy to find.
There are numerous hiking adventures in the area. See our hiking page on Shasta Starr
