Redding, California…Your Passport For Adventure

Redding, home of the world famous Sundial Bridge, sits at the base of the mountains in far northern California in the center of the state’s Shasta Cascade region. Considered the ‘hub of the north state,’ Redding offers convenient shopping, quality restaurants, and abundant lodging choices, making it the perfect ‘base camp’ for exploring the region’s natural attractions.

Hundreds of miles of hiking, biking, equestrian, and off-road vehicle trails have been developed within a 15 mile radius of downtown Redding. (Click here to visit the Redding Area Trail page).

The Sacramento River Trail, which crosses the Sundial Bridge in the heart of Redding, and the Sacramento River Rail Trail, which extends north all the way to Shasta Dam and sits alongside an historic abandoned railway, have both been designated as National Recreation Trails in the National Trail System.

The area surrounding Shasta Lake and Whiskeytown National Recreation Area both offer abundant unpaved trails that are very popular with single track bicyclists.

The mountains surrounding this growing river city-and home of the American Trails organization- also offer endless opportunities for great trail experiences. Castle Crags State Park offers unmatched views of Mt. Shasta and Lassen Volcanic National Park has numerous scenic trails that take visitors to bubbling mud pots, boiling lakes, and majestic vistas.
