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.

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.

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.

Great place to go for a walk, fishing, or play at various parks along the river's edge. We enjoy visiting Anderson River Park.

4 Salmon runs a year and I've seen where a 90+ lb salmon was found after the spawn in autumn. July and August is excellent weather for tubing/ floating in Anderson or Chico. Boat races outside of Red Bluff, and the refuge in Sac.

I live on the Sacramento River in Red Bluff The River has many different areas for different recreational pursuits. Our downtown park is right on the river with many picnic areas and a place for children to play . Lots of community activities occur in this park----a beautiful place on the river.
