Whiskeytown Lake is small and although the water appears pure and clean it's tainted by pollution, especially over in the Black Buttom area.
Shasta is presently experiencing some very low water levels due to the Powers that be that are increasing the flow downstream to the Farmers below. At least that's their excuse. Turning a majestic lake into a huge mud hole by the end of August when we could seriously use that water to fight our annual wildland fires each year.
Trinity is beautiful, but also suffers by the hands of the same Powers that be who are controlling the water levels at Lake Shasta. Trails are average around the lakes. They do tend to them when the budget allows.

We hiked to Whiskeytown Falls. A very nice cascading water fall. The hike isn't to long, but the trail did have some ice areas in February.

Great place to spend the day, good camping and fantastic for a picnic. The water is a bit choppy for skiing, but sailing and tubing are amazing
