Ascent Trip ReportWe bagged Eddy the day after Shasta. We were hesitant since we were tired from Shasta, but it was SO worth it. The scenic variety was incredible crossing meadows and lakes and crags, and the carpets of wildflowers, and views of Shasta, and lakeside fun all made it one of the best hikes I've ever done! This would be a fantastic area to camp for a weekend.
Locals advised us that not only is the Deadfall route shorter than the PCT route, it is more shaded and beautiful for the first couple miles.
Very straightforward and popular hike. Beware the Deadfall Meadows if wet! The trail is very marshy and muddy for the first half mile with multiple creek crossings.
1/1 ACCESS - well-marked, mostly paved roads
0/2 REMOTENESS (Popularity, Sight/Sound) - many dozens of hikers, but all in a great mood!
1/1 CONDITION - well-traveled trails
3/3 VARIETY (Flora and Fauna, Geological, Terrain) - gorgeous hike with creeks, flowers, waterfalls, nested lakes, interesting geology, etc.
3/3 VIEWS - breathtaking view of Shasta and all the surrounding mountains.
(does not include difficulty since hikers may prefer opposite extremes)
