Just moved from Southern California to Northern California. Anyone have any great spots they love up here for hikes? Looking for something that’s easy to moderate, few hours or so and something that can preferably be with my 8, soon to be 9, year old son. There’s so much beautiful scenery up here and we homeschool so we’re looking to create new outdoor memories. 


Hi @Alicia8338 - Thanks for reaching out. It's great to hear that you and your son are gearing up for some hikes in your new area!

A beautiful trail that you might want to check out is the Lake Siskiyou Trail Loop — on clear days you'll even have gorgeous views of Mt Shasta!

Hopefully some other folks will weigh-in with their recommendations too. @Ana-hikes@maggiesch@angelaf@Luchy@Cbobgo - do y'all have any easy/moderate trails in Northern California that you'd suggest?
