Shasta County is located in the northern portion of California. The county occupies the northern reaches of the Sacramento Valley, with portions extending into the southern reaches of the Cascade Range. The county seat and by far the largest city is Redding.
Mountains line the county on the east, north and west. The Sacramento River flows out of the mountains to the north, through the center of the county, and toward the Sacramento Valley to the south. Shasta County has extensive forests, which cover over one half the land area with commercially productive forest systems. Common forest alliances include mixed oak woodland and mixed conifer-oak woodland as well as douglas fir forest. Common trees found include White-bark pine, California Black Oak and California Buckeye.
Points of interest include Lassen Peak, Lassen Volcanic National Park, Shasta Lake, Turtle Bay Exploration Park, Hat Creek Radio Observatory and Iron Mountain Mine, one of the nation's most toxic waste sites.
