I suggest riding from Shasta dam and ride down and back for a good workout, You can also park at Keswick boat launch and ride from there too. Trail is paved all the way from dam to Sundial bridge in redding.

Beautiful view of the river, great walking trail or for biking, blading, pushing a baby stroller or walking the dog. Peaceful to walk in a gentle rain. A relaxing way to start the day!

Walk, ride, or being pushed in a stroller are ways to enjoy our Beautiful Redding. The Sacramento river trail is beautiful and different places are just serene. If you are going to run alone-take a dog....I love Redding and the Sacramento trail.

We were so glad we stopped here to bike. The trail was perfect with sun and shade along the way. It can be used by young and old.

I so love riding, sometimes walking, this section of the river trail. Most of it parallels the river and it is so beautiful and peaceful. We are so lucky to have this here in Redding and so easily accessible!

We love biking this trail. It goes for about 16-17 miles from Turtle Bay, ending up atop Shasta Dam if you're up for the climb. The first stretch of the trail is easy and shady, paved and gently rolling. I've taken my mom on a...More

Great trail but again the homeless love to camp out there. Just be careful when visiting. Lock up car, and don't leave anything in plain view in your car when visiting.
