Kayla is definitely a road-warrior. Say wanna go for a ride? – her ears are up, tail is wagging, leash is in her mouth, she’s in the car, and it’s full-sniff ahead. One of her favorite road trips is the Shasta Cascade region of Northern California, which actually covers about 20 percent of California. Back-country dog-friendly trails, lakes and rivers abound, as do dog-friendly accommodations.
Her Shasta Cascade favs include spending evenings on the lawn at the dog-passionate Mount Shasta Ranch B&B
, under the shadow of Mt. Shasta with very affordable room rates and a small $10/night Fido-fee; and hiking along the nearby McCloud River plus swimming near the Middle McCloud Falls.
Not too far away in Redding, Kayla likes to walk across the Sundial Bridge and onto the Sacramento River National Recreation Trail
that overlooks the Sacramento River. She hasn’t made the entire 16.5 miles, but loves the leash-free open space along the trail.
