Clikapudi Trail is near several Pit River area campgrounds of Shasta Lake
Clikapudi Trail is a beautiful path for hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking in the spring and fall, and on nice winter days. Summertime temperatures tend to discourage most use except in the early mornings and evenings after the sun has gone down. Wildflowers are spectacular in the spring, and there are nice vistas across the Pit Arm of Shasta Lake. The trail climbs and descends through a forest of mixed conifer and black oak scattered with small meadows. Anglers use the trail to access their favorite fishing spots below the trail along the Pit Arm of the lake.

The main loop, beginning and ending at the boat ramp parking lot, is 8 miles long. That part of the trail from the campground to Forest Road 33N03 is approximately 0.75-mile.

If you choose to hike the Clikapudi Trail in the summer, be sure and take plenty of water. Summer heat is quite severe in this area and there is no drinking water available after you leave the boat ramp parking lot, or the campground.

There are three available trailheads. One at the footbridge at Jones Valley campground, also at the Jones Valley Boat Ramp parking lot (north and south sides), and halfway between, where the trail crosses Forest Road 33N03.

Directions from Shasta Lake City, CA: Jones Valley Campground(s): The camping area is located 9 miles east of Shasta Lake City. Freeway exits are Oasis or Mountain Gate exit off Interstate 5, then east 9 miles on Bear Mountain Road to Dry Creek Road. Follow Dry Creek Road appoximately 2 miles to facility.

Directions from Shasta Lake City, CA: Jones Valley Boat Ramp: The boat ramp is located just 2 miles from the Jones Valley campgrounds. Use the Oasis Road or Mountain Gate exit off Interstate 5, then east 9 miles on Bear Mountain Road to Dry Creek Road. Follow Dry Creek Road approximately 3 miles to facility.
