Sacramento River Headwaters - Mt. Shasta City Park - Mt. Shasta, CA
If you are going to be in this area and you are in need of some outdoor gear or to arrange a guided trip in the Shasta area, check out the newly (5/25/12) opened McCloud Outdoors & Gear Exchange.
The most northern watershed part of the Sacramento is in Southern Oregon in the Goose Lake area. From there the Pit River drains the Modoc Plateau and joins the Sacramento as the eastern tributary of Shasta Lake.The Pit river actually contributes 4 times as much water (about 4,000 CSF) than the Upper Sacramento.
The park is located at the northern end of the City of Mt. Shasta, take N. Mt. Shasta Blvd. to Nixon Rd and make the first Right into the park. Note there is NO swimming or wadding in the headwaters!
