The beautiful spring located at the base of Spring Hill in the Mt. Shasta City Park is known as the headwaters of the Upper Sacramento River (though other branches of the mighty Sacramento reach even further into the wilderness). A viewing patio, benches and pathways make this amazing spring a favorite spot for locals and visitors alike.The water gushing from the spring fell as snow on Mount Shasta years ago, and has made it's way underground to emerge into the sunlight at the City Park.Restoration work in recent years has stabilized the hillside above the spring with boulders and native plants. The area has gradually returned to its natural health and beauty. A paved pathway leads down from the spring and along the creek through the park, while two footbridges give access to wetlands, trails and more springs to the north.A great story about the Headwaters Spring is Where does the water go? at the Mt. Shasta Herald website!
DID YOU KNOW – The land, which ultimately became the Mt. Shasta City Park, was once part of the hunting ground for the Wintun, Maidu, and Okwanuchu Indian tribes and was first crossed by explorers around 1841. Big Springs, designated as the location of the headwaters of the Sacramento River, once contained a water-wheel and was the city's first source of energy (1901) for generating power to light the local community. The crystal clear water flowing through the park begins its journey high on the snow-covered peaks of majestic Mt. Shasta, flowing through underground lava tubes until finally gushing forth into daylight at the City Park's headwaters area. Along it's journey out of the park the water flows through the Mt. Shasta Fish Hatchery, feeds into Lake Siskiyou, plunging over the Box Canyon Dam as it reaches it's final destination, the Sacramento River. The Headwaters Area is well-known as a local historical point of interest attracting hundreds of curious sight-seers each year.

The Siskiyou County Fair began as an agricultural show in 1859 in Fort Jones, moved to Yreka in 1867 and became the 10th District Agricultural Association in 1926, at the current location on Fairlane Rd. The 10th D.A.A. hosted the Siskiyou County Fair until 1952 when a second fair was established in Siskiyou County, the Tulelake-Butte Valley Fair. The name was changed at that time to the “Siskiyou County Fair and Paul Bunyan Festival.” In 1972, the current name “The Siskiyou Golden Fair” was selected by the Board of Directors and that name is still used today. For 158 years, our traditions, heritage, culture and history have been on display through our many and varied exhibits, contests and entertainment opportunities. Join us August 7-11, 2019 in Yreka as we celebrate “Pioneer Days to Modern Ways”.
