Trails to Bike, Hike, and Ride in Redding, CA

If you want to go for a nice walk (or run, or ride), Redding has a trail for you…several dozen in fact! Redding is the proud home of 225 miles of trails within a 15-mile radius of town, making it “the gem of the U.S. Trail System” (gee thanks, San Francisco Chronicle!). Take your pick: set out from the popular Sundial Bridge - hub of the Sacramento River National Recreation Trail - or pack some dirt on your mountain bike tires in Whiskeytown National Recreation Area. Enjoy river views, rolling foothills, and/or sweeping valley vistas along the well-maintained trails, with amenities and kindred spirits scattered along the way. Short loops close to town and long stretches through the hills mean all abilities and any schedule can be accommodated. Redding’s trails are free to all, and most are dog-friendly, which means the whole family can explore together. Remember to pack your camera, a few snacks, and plenty of water, and as always, tread lightly!
