Shasta Cascade Overview
The Shasta Cascade is the largest region of Northern California. It includes low-lying farmland, active volcanoes, mountain ranges and high-altitude plateaus. Several large lakes offer exciting activities from houseboating to water-skiing and salmon fishing. Its volcanic wonders include boiling mud pots, acidic lakes, lava tubes and more. Because of its distant proximity to any major airports, the northern regions of the Shasta Cascade are the some of the least populated regions in California. A visitor can explore all day and never see another person.
