One of Reddings best attractions

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.

Great for walking, strolling, biking and picnics. Will get you to several wonderful biking trails for a true off road experience, plan an entire day to spend on the Sacramento River

This is as close as any of us are likely to come. Great views in every direction. It is easy to get to, easy to cross and easy to leave. What's not to like. If the salmon are running you can stand above them and watch.

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.
