This is a beautiful well paved trail along the river. I love it for jogging and biking. Unfortunately, there has been some criminal activity along the trail. I would not recommend going alone or defenseless.

I wish I brought my bike with me. We strolled for 2 miles on the river and saw river otters, fish, Kayakers etc. Definitely one of the best walking/jogging/biking paths in Northern CA.

We are so blessed to have such a beautiful trail by our beautiful river!I especially love the loop by the Dieselhorst Bridge, but there are many more miles than this slightly less than 6 mile stretch.

The Sacramento Trail is a true jewel of Redding Califorina town. It winds along the river up stream and down for miles while going past natural retreats, parks, Turtle Bay and the famous Sun Dial walking bridge. It is a must while visiting the area.

You don't have to put away your trail shoes when winter comes, because you can enjoy a delightful stroll or a serious, day-long outing right in Redding. The river trail runs from a signed trailhead on North Hilltop Drive all the way to an unmarked...More

We spent a couple of hours enjoying the trail on both sides of the sundial bridge. The path is well maintained and there were lots of individuals and families who were enjoying the wonderful surroundings on foot and cycles. Highly recommend it for whatever amount...More
