Great Place to Cool Off

Lots of natural trails down to the river and places to sit and put your feel in to cool off! There is a river trail paved path that will take you through several pocket parks.

The trail was long cement walkway following the Sacremento River. It's a good way to get your excersize with a view. Finding the entrance, not as easy for a tourist.

There are so many options on this trail system. Great place for walking dogs and it's family friendly. There is a museum and the Sundial Bridge at Turtle bay. From there you can go a number of directions to trails of various lengths. Bike or hike.

The trail is great. Great for biking because it is a distance that you really felt like you went somewhere....actually to Shasta Dam and campground...have a picnic along the way. There are tables and benches overlooking the river. There are bathrooms and pit toilets and lots of routes. It is great!

This is a gem that runs through the city of Redding CA. The main loop is about 6 miles but there is potential to go up to 26 miles if you would like. This would include the paved Keswick to Shasta Dam trail and the unpaved eastern side! There are many access points along the river trail including the end... More

This is one of many biking trails that are apparently in the area. Rode it mid-afternoon on a Friday. It was way too busy for me. Beautiful though. Saw 2 homeless types, but they appeared harmless. Great habitat for wildlife, so be vigilant. Maybe leave the iPod & earbuds at home? Lots of blind curves, so pay attention! The following... More

This really is a great place to walk all the trails. Start on the west side and go over the bridge. From here you can turn left and take more trails all around the river and loop back to Turtle Bay where you started. You could spend HOURS walking all these trails. Beautiful river and places to go down to... More

it is a treasure to have this available to us. I have used it extensively for rehab after an accident and bike riding as an enjoyable evening.
