Middle Creek Trail (CA) Description

The Middle Creek Trail provides a gentle 2-mile climb along a former railroad bed from the river bottom up to its intersection with Iron Mountain Road. From there, the trail follows an old stagecoach road and becomes steeper as it makes its way to State Route 299 on the edge of Shasta State Historic Park, where a future extension will provide easy access to the ruins of an old Gold Rush settlement.

On their journey, trail-goers will enjoy scenic views through quiet Northern California forests abundant with wildlife. Access to the Sacramento River Trail is available from the trail's eastern tip.

Parking and Trail Access

There are no official parking areas for the Middle Creek Trail, and it is best accessed from the Sacramento River Trail. Park at the trailhead on Keswick Dam Road and take the Sacramento River Trail south for a couple of miles to reach the Middle Creek Trail.
