“Hike through oak, manzanita, and pine to the top of Chamise Hill for views of Shasta Dam, Sacramento River, and Lassen.”— James Landry
Family Friendly Modest slope, great views, and fun spiral trail around the hill can make for a pleasant (but long) family trip. There is a bench halfway for weary travelers, but no bathroom or water amenities.
Starting at the parking lot at the end of Flanagan Rd, follow Flanagan Trail until reaching a Y-intersection (a bench is located here). Continue on the Chamise Peak Trail. Stay on the Chamise Peak Trail when you encounter another spur trail that returns to Flanagan Trail. Each of these intersections are marked with white BLM sign poles, with trail names and direction arrows. The trail switchbacks to Chamise Peak, and then spirals around the hill to end at a picnic table on top.
Be sure to enjoy the great views of Shasta Dam, Lassen, and the Sacramento River as you work your way along the spiral as well as on the peak.
