Great place to get outside, enjoy a healthy walk and take in the beauty of our area. Good for singles and families. The trails go on forever and ever.

A nice place to enter this trail if you want some hills to walk, run or bike, would be to park on Harlan Drive which is off of Quartz Hill. If you prefer a flat bike/hike or walk/run experience (both are alongside the Sacramento River) you will park off of the Court Street entrance. Bring water to stay hydrated and... More

My wonderful husband and I visited this parkway and bay by chance after signing up for the Turtle Bay/Lions Half Marathon last October. Thought it would be a relaxing departure from the usual big city races and venues. The race was very small-town, but/and full of heart, but the surprise came with the beautiful route up and down the Sacramento... More

We bring our bikes when we are camping at Shasta Lake and come and bike on this trail. It is great - pretty flat and so scenic. You are biking along the river the whole way. Not too hot with breeze from bike movement. If you want some exertion, you can elect to go up Heartrate Hill at the end... More

People come from all over to see the Sacramento River Trail. At turtle bay they have an Aquarium that is really interesting and a Must See place. The trail has been having a lot of assaults and is not safe to jog alone. We like riding our bikes on the trail as a family. It is very pretty.

Bring your bikes,strollers,walking shoes or just sit and relax watching people,the fishermen or spot a bald eagle.This trail is by far our all time favorite,it follows the beautiful Sacramento River along natural tree lined shores, thru city parks full of gardens bordering the backyards with grazing deer and friendly Redding residents. You can take the trail into downtown and enjoy... More

The Sacramento River Trail is one of the greatest gems in Northern California. It is now paved all the way from the amazing Sundial Bridge for 18 miles all the way to the Shasta Dam. You can do a loop by crossing the suspension walking bridge just below Keswick Dam and return on the other side of the river. One... More

Although it is on the edge of town, a walk on this trail makes you feel like you are miles out in the country. The scenery is awesome, and the natural wild life is impressive. This trail is a must for anyone that enjoys the outdoors or nature. A must see for sure.

A great trail that follows the Sacramento River 18 miles from Sundial Bridge to Shasta Dam. You can cross just below Keswick Dam and return or take the trail all the way beyond Keswick Dam to Shasta Dam.
