I enjoyed seeing the section of the Sacramento River which is in Redding. The Sacramento River is 447 miles. In the Sacramento River area of Redding, I enjoyed hiking on some trails, walking across Sundial Bridge, seeing some ducks and other wildlife. The other section of Sacramento River where we spend a lot of time is in Sacramento, the capitol... More

We enjoyed the wildlife...mama swan with her five babies and River otters playing. The River where we were was so peaceful.

It's beautiful along the river. Very hot in the afternoon and the water is really cold, so plan accordingly.

Quiet, peaceful and relaxing! Great river to drift down, by raft, kayak, drift boat, etc. Wonder large trout to catch for dinner or catch and release. World renowned trophy fishing!

The Sac River Trails are awesome. The mostly paved trails wind along or near the Sacramento River, but ALL of Redding has been overrun with homeless & criminal transients. Fed & catered to by a large number of vocal do-gooder organizations, they run amok day & night. Take care as you would in a large dangerous city as law enforcement... More

If it wasn't for the river Redding would be just another place to stop along I-5. During the summer even the locals utilize the numerous spots along the river to cool off and enjoy a picnic. Wouldn't recommend swimming though, that sucker is COLD.

The Sacramento River is the heart of Redding. It flows through the middle of the city and provides recreation all year round. Great boating, fishing and scenic views.

You will definitely enjoy a trip around the Sacramento River. There are too many attractions: Shasta dam is an amazing construction; Sundial Bridge at Turtle Bay is one of the cutest and most beautiful bridges you have ever seen; a boat cruise is a wonderful sightseeing option; a snowshoe tours at Lassen National Park nearby will add more fun for...

Best river park I have visited. Especially for a small town. Walking, running, biking, picnicing or merely watching the river, it has it all. With a CA license, fishing too! Great kid's playground areas. Plenty of parking, but no RV parking.
