Trails and the American Spirit: 2000 and
-- Back to Symposium Index --
The 15th National Trails Symposium will be held September 21-24, 2000 in Redding, California (see photo of Redding from the air). Gateway to the trails of the Shasta Cascade, Redding has developed one of the newest multiple-use urban trail systems in the country, providing quality of experience, environmental sensitivity, and unique design and aesthetics. Redding's primary trail follows the banks of the Sacramento River as it meanders through the city. Using historic rail beds, mining roads, and unusual pedestrian bridges, the River Trail links the river's history, recreation and cultural experiences with residential neighborhoods.

Redding's proposed pedestrian bridge will be not only an artistic statement but a tribute to its beautiful river setting.
