Excellent for relaxation, and/or exercise. Views are fabulous. I would have given it a perfect rating except for one thing. The River Sein that runs thru Paris, France has a spot where people put locks on the fence to hide secrets, and then throw away the key, shown on the movie "Now You See Me". It started here along a... More

Between the vagrants and the bikers flying past, I was happy I carry a taser. Also, the Bethel Church students gather at the fountain in the arboretum and you can't go near it. Not fun.

The Sacramento river trail skirts the river and has something for all hiking abilities. It is a multi-use trail which means at any time there could be horses, dogs, bikes, skaters, etc. It is a paved trail. I would say the only drawbacks I have found are off leash dogs (not allowed) and bicyclists that feel they own the trail... More

The Sacramento River trail has been a gem in Redding for years and it has only gotten better with all of the additions. Whether you walk or bike it is great for the whole family. Connected to the Sundial Bridge and the Arboretum make for a fantastic experience.

Scenic mostly paved, with non paved trails, off the main trail. It goes from Redding to Shasta Lake Dam on both sides of the Sacramento River. If you love to ride a bike you'll love this!

We were staying in Redding for my Brothers birthday and my Nephews graduation. We asked the Innkeeper if there was a good place to go running since my wife and I are doing the running thing. She recommended this trail which was close and just what we were looking for. It is a trail the runs on the Sacramento river... More

Then enjoy the Sacramento River Trail. Walk, fish, bike, wade through the water, skip over rocks, tube or picnic. We only did a few miles near Turtle Bay.

Which we did from beginning to end. A lot of people around the Sundial Bridge - walking mid trail - so we needed to go slow & be careful. Later toward the other bridges it was better. The trail is incredibly scenic & well maintained. You can park at various spots to start your journey.

beautiful place, but you have to be careful, when you are visiting. Not safe at times. Hot in the summer. Just be careful when you are out on any trail.

I live here in Redding and use the River Trail weekly. I walk, run, cycle. The trail goes on for miles. The beauty is amazing. I think this is one of Redding greatest treasures.
