Black Butte in CA is not a mountain as the one by same name in Oregon, but is a cluster of lava domes formed from the eruption of Mount Shasta and Shastina about 9-10,000 years ago. It is located in Siskiyou County, California, with the towns of Mt. Shasta and Weed below. Please respect nature!

The film of the path is shaky using an old camcorder.

It is not advised to attempt this hike in the winter. Be advised that thunderstorms can approach this area with little warning. Strong ankles, with supportive footwear are a must because of small loose rock covering parts of the path. Watch for snakes. If you are not an experienced hiker, or are afraid of heights, don't consider this trip... there are occasional steep drops on one side of the path. Consult official web sites, not YouTube, for complete and accurate information. It is not recommended to hike this path alone. Information contained in this older video may now be outdated, and weather conditions vary widely. Be safe.
