Clear Creek continues to be the go-to route for summiting Mount Shasta this year. It is entirely snow-free. The only water available will be found at the spring near 8000 ft. There is good camping beyond the spring area. Please choose a campsite at least 200 feet from the spring and try to stay off of the alpine grasses and vegetation when filling up. Having sturdy footwear, small gaiters to keep rocks out of your boots, hiking poles, and a helmet are a good idea.
Rangers have noticed a lot of macro-trash, micro-trash, and human waste pack-out bags left behind. Spray painting graffiti will result in an immediate citation if caught. Please do your part to Leave No Trace and help keep the Mount Shasta Wilderness clean. Summit Passes, Wilderness Permits, and Pack-out bags can be found at the ranger station and trailhead.
