Trail Overview
Shasta Bally Peak
You'll love the views of Whiskeytown Lake once you make your way up this steep and rugged trail. If you're there on a clear day, you can even see Mount Shasta to the northeast. You'll find Sheep Camp along the way, which provides camping, picnic tables, grills and toilets. This is open to street-legal vehicles only and you will be charged a small fee to use the park.
History
In 1963 the Whiskeytown Dam was dedicated by John F. Kennedy along with a crowd of 10,000. It is part of the Central Valley Project, which was created to move water from abundant sources in the north to drier areas in the south. The Whiskeytown Project included blasting a 10-mile long, 17-ft.-diameter tunnel through solid granite, connecting the Trinity River to the Sacramento River system. The dam provides a dependable water supply and hydroelectric power
