Page 12 On Foot Hiking and backpacking can be enjoyed in every region. We'll share with you some favorite, moderate hikes for each territory. There are also some surprising backpacking opportunities, such as staying overnight on Angel Island in San Francisco Bay. Spelunking (cave exploring) opportunities in the Shasta Cascade area at Shasta Caverns and other sites will take you into the scenic underground. Rock climbing is popular at sites such as Pinnacles National Monument, near Monterey. The numerous indoor and outdoor ''rock gyms'', found throughout Northern California, are a new and safe way to experience this sport.
Adventure travel activities can be enjoyed year round, but a knowledge of the climate is critical. San Francisco has a cool summer. " The rains of Northern California may last from October through April, pelting the coast, especially the north coast from Eureka to Crescent City. Further inland, the rains are blocked, creating more arid environments, except in the high mountains. This causes the precipitation to fall as snow on the west faces of the Sierra. From April through October there is little rain, except for summer thunderstorms in the mountains.
Chapter 5 outlines the Shasta Cascade Region, a vast and lesser known wilderness and lake area of California. Shasta Cascade is the main houseboating place in Northern California and the West, primarily on Shasta Lake. If you are a hiker or backpacker, you will also enjoy one of our lesser-known national parks, Lassen. Chapter 6 takes you east from San Francisco into the mountains, The Sierra and Gold Country: Lake Tahoe and Yosemite. This is the great downhill and cross-country ski area of California, especially around Lake Tahoe.
