Weed lies on the western slopes of Mount Shasta, north of Redding along Interstate 5 near Lake Shastina and Grass Lake. Surrounded by national forests, high desert plains and volcanic formations makes the town of Weed not only a very scenic place to visit, but one of great geological interest, as well. From Weed there is easy access to a range of outdoor recreational activities. The Living Memorial Sculpture Garden is located a short drive up Highway 97, and nearby Lake Shastina offers swimming, water skiing, wind surfing, boating, and other water sports. An 18-hole Robert Trent Jones professional golf course and a 9-hole executive course are also at Lake Shastina. Backpackers love the area where miles of secluded trails are found winding through the pristine wilderness areas. Experienced hikers attempt the ascent of the 14,162-foot Mount Shasta, but others prefer the easier walk up 6,344-foot Black Butte, or the popular Pacific Crest Trail or the trails at Castle Crags State Park. In wintertime, Weed is near downhill skiing, a snowmobile park and cross country skiing. The town of Weed is just fifty miles from the Oregon State border, and its location at the intersection of Interstate 5 and Highway 97 marks the beginning of the Alaskan Highway.

Weed Weather & Climate

The Mt. Shasta/Mt. Lassen region has a climate that varies greatly depending on the elevation. Generally, the area experiences a distinct winter, spring, summer and fall. The seasons are somewhat influenced by the Pacific Ocean. It always snows in the area, and winter temperatures can become quite cold. Usually, however, the snow melts quickly at lower elevations, with daytime highs in the mid 20s to mid 30s range. In summer, temperatures can reach 100 degrees, but that is rare. Highs are normally in the 75 to 85 degree range with cool nights. Most precipitation is received October through March. On the mountain summits, snow falls every month of the year, and even in the driest summers, glaciers remain on the north slope and large snow packs are visible from every viewpoint. On Mt. Shasta, the exposure to storms from the Pacific, plus its elevation, results in high winds and heavy snow accumulations.
