The trail begins near the restroom. Hiking in a counter clockwise direction, the

trail takes you behind Whiskeytown Cemetery then past the Mt. Shasta Mine. Look for the fenced mine shaft to

the left of the trail where a very large foothill pine tree has fallen across the path. An interpretive sign is located

in front of the fencing. The trail then meanders along Orofino Creek, offering small pools and waterfalls during

winter and spring. The trail will leave the creek and begin to climb steadily uphill with vistas of the surrounding

peaks and the bald, rolling hills in the Igo area. Eventually you will end up on an access road; go left on the

downhill side. Walk along this road for the remainder of your journey, enjoying views of Whiskeytown Lake.
