Trailforks shows that the Upper Sac Trail and Walker Mine Trail are not connected, but they are (I assume it's GPS error).

This route is designed as a shuttle, with one vehicle at Walker Mine Road trailhead and the other at the Shasta Dam visitor center parking lot. However, the route can be ridden as out & back.
