Fresh air, crystal clear mountain streams, the fragrance of towering pine trees in summer and the beauty of pure white snow in winter. That’s what this 2.5-acre parcel in northern California has to offer. Located in Siskiyou County in the shadow of Mt. Shasta at an elevation of 4,048 feet, it’s just 9 miles outside the historic timber industry town of McCloud.
The parcel is zoned residential – vacant land. Access is from an unpaved road, with the nearest paved road only 0.3 miles away. Utilities are readily available, with existing power lines within 400 feet.
Whether you want to place a manufactured home on the property, or just go there to camp, it is the perfect gateway to an unlimited variety of recreational opportunities. In summer, you can play one of four nearby golf courses. There’s rafting on the Klamath, Scott and Upper Sacramento rivers. Hikers and boaters will enjoy the miles of trails, lakes, meandering rivers, waterfalls and pristine wilderness that surround the McCloud area. For a little underground adventure, you can explore Lake Shasta Caverns, one of 700 caves that dot the area.
You can take a leisurely horseback ride along the nearby Pacific Crest Trail or see the spawning rainbow and brown trout at the Mt. Shasta Fish Hatchery, the oldest operating hatchery west of the Mississippi.
The town of Mt. Shasta is just 15 minutes from McCloud on California’s Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway. Like McCloud, it has pioneer beginnings and now is a popular scenic getaway and artists’ colony. The Byway is a north-south highway that travels along the Cascade Range offering views of the area’s many volcanos. Learn more about them at the Lava Beds National Monument. The most impressive volcano, towering above the northern California landscape, is Mt. Shasta. It offers brave mountaineers the challenge of reaching its 14,719-foot summit.
In winter, just five miles from McCloud is Mt. Shasta Ski Park. Its terrain offers skiing for all levels of skiers and snowboarders, plus snowshoeing, sledding and dog sledding. Begin a cross country ski adventure at the Mt. Shasta Nordic Center.
Everyone loves vacations, but they can be expensive and complicated to plan. Why not have your own “vacation” available anytime on this reasonably-priced 2.5-acre parcel in the heart of northern California’s lush pine forests.
