This an in and out bike ride, offering steady climbing, great views, and a big tree pay off at the end.
The ride starts at the parking lot for the Whiskeytown Falls, and turns to a dirt road within a quarter of a mile. Once on the dirt road, it is steady climbing for a couple of hours save a few little downhills. Turn left at the top to Coggins Park, and take the amazing old growth trees there.
Just a little further down the road, on the left, is the trail to Shasta Bally, and is a nice spot to take in the view of the West Side of Shasta Bally.
