Horseback Riding

Stock use is allowed throughout the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument. Horse/stock camping facilities are available at Hyatt Lake Recreation Area. Stock users are encouraged to use existing trails such as the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail, although cross country travel is allowed. To minimize erosion, prevent the spread of weeds, and to protect fragile plant communities, stock users should comply with the regulations listed below.
