McCloud Outdoors & Gear Exchange McCloud,CA


290 Quincy Ave McCloud, CA

ExploringNorCal.com is all about getting out and enjoying our local outdoors & for visitors to Northern California to have good directions so they, too, can enjoy our public lands. The abundance and diversity of California's national parks & forests, BLM land, state and local parks are some of California's greatest attractions, making it a world class destination for outdoor adventurers'. One area I had over looked for years was the Mt. Shasta area. In the past few years I have explored around the area but I have barely scratched the surface of what this area has to offer. What makes it even more incredible is that it is lesser known than the Lake Tahoe area, which in the summer can become overcome with tourists. For the outdoor adventurer type McCloud, CA is a good point to start your adventure, just 10 miles from Interstate 5 on CA Hwy 89. The area offers camping, waterfalls, kayaking, boating, caving, hiking, snow skiing, swimming and more, all just minutes away from McCloud.
