Description

Past the beautiful Castle Lake and beyond the northern side of the humbler Heart Lake, one finds a rather remote cliffside path up to one of the most beautiful vistas overlooking the northeast and the remarkable Mt. Shasta. The hike itself, starting from the Castle Lake trailhead, is about 3.5 miles to the lookout and back.

Short Hike: The distance is 0.3 miles from Heart Lake. 41.223399, -122.387116*

Snowshoed up in beautiful weather. Some moderate winds at the top, but a gorgeous place.
