There are three Nationally designated scenic byways on the Shasta Trinity National Forest.  They include:

The Trinity Scenic Byway that follows Highway 299 West between the small communities of Shasta, (on the outskirts of Redding) all the way to Blue Lake, (near Arcata on the coast). 

The Trinity Heritage Scenic Byway that begins in the historic mining town of Weaverville and ends on Interstate 5 just north of Weed and traces much of the history of northern Trinity County along Highway 3 and the Parks Creek Road.

Brochures are available for both the Trinity and Trinity Heritage National Scenic Byways and can be requested through the Weaverville Ranger Station @ (530) 623-2121.

The Modoc Volcanic National Scenic Byway incorporates parts of Highway 89 out of McCloud and Highway 49 northeast to Medicine Lake.
