Otherworldly waterfalls, panoramic views, and a whole lot of adventures lurk on the southern slope of Mount Shasta. Nestled just 10 miles east of Mount Shasta, California is McCloud, a small, historic mill town with a vibrant history and a myriad of outdoor adventures suitable for any season.
With all this new snow, what is McCloud to do? Well, McCloud Outdoors and McCloud Millworks have partnered up to bring Snowshoe McCloud Historic Guided Tours to the old mill property. They will be kicking off their new endeavour Saturday, January 28th at 1PM for a 2-3 hour guided tour complete with a history lesson along the way. For only $55 you get a snowshoe rental, hot drinks, cookies, and a guided tour along a groomed trail with Mount Shasta as your backdrop.
McCloud Offers several ways to ring in the new year. From fine dining and live music at the McCloud Hotel to dancing the night away at the Shasta View Lodge or the American Legion.

Rene Agredano, Demand Media - McCloud is a rustic alpine community with a colorful past as a prosperous lumber town. Situated in the shadow of Mount Shasta at 3,200 feet above sea level and surrounded by over 1 million acres of national forest lands, today McCloud is no longer a hub of commercial logging activity; instead, its bustling downtown area serves as a year-round base camp for anglers, hikers, hunters, campers and off-road enthusiasts.
