I have intended to ride the Great Shasta Rail Trail for the past couple of years, especially since I bought the Ogre. Finally, on a drive up to Yreka today I made a point of detouring off the Interstate to McCloud and hitting the trail for a few miles.
Fortunately, I had checked the trail website to discover the location of the trailhead, because it was completely unmarked. No sign, map, parking lot, restroom, bollards, or trashcan. That was true of every intersection I saw where the trail crossed a road. The only way I knew for sure I was in the right place was because after a couple of miles I came to a bridge marked with a sign.
