The Siskiyou Peaks Trail is a 448-mile journey to the highest point in 7 wilderness areas. Following a mix of backcountry roads and trails, hikers can access more than 40 glacial cirque lakes, 7 Farmer's Markets, and countless opportunities for wilderness solitude. The SPT, as it's known for short, traverses the Siskiyou Mountains and attains the highest point in Siskiyou County, Mt Shasta, the final summit of the trail. This route has also been published to be used as a template for an official Siskiyou Peaks National Scenic Trail.
The following video documents the alternate I took to still visit this area, despite the fire closure. This hike turned out to be the adventure I was looking for, and in no way was I bummed to have detoured.
As with the Trinity Alps High Route proper, my alternate shared a few miles with The Siskiyou Peaks Trail.
