There was nothing to dislike. It was a beautiful walk. We spent some sit and reflect time on a bench, just enjoying the restorative vibe of the river.

The trail provides an easy walk or bike ride for those who want to enjoy the beauty of the Sacramento River. There are several options to access the trail, with the most popular being the Sundial Bridge. The trail is relatively flat and shaded on the south side with more hills and sun on the north side. You can do... More

It's a beautiful trail along the river. It's always cooler than the city. Level areas, slight hills, and extreme hills are all here- choose your fork in the road. Find safety in numbers though, and daylight hours. It's not an unsafe place, but there is an occasional sketchy element.

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
