Dry Fork Trail begins along the west side of Shasta Dam and ends at Dry Fork Creek on County Road 5G012. The trail is 4.7 miles in length providing access to fishing and sightseeing opportunities. Constructed primarily to extend fishing access north of Shasta Dam, this trail is a good way to see this area. There are great views of the lake and Mt. Shasta and lots of opportunities to fish and swim. The trailhead is accessible only when the lake is down about 15 feet or more at Shasta Dam. The path is available all year for hiking, but the recommended season is spring or late fall.
