Clover Creek Preserve Trail

June, 2020 by backupemale34

I took my 2 year old out here today to go fishing there are several little trails and even little fishing spots. Turtles and ducks and so many cute critters.¿¿

Sacramento River Trail

Best trail in Northern California!

April, 2020 by pedegobob

I’m building a new house by the trail and have been riding this trail for years. There are a variety of starting points starting on Hilltop Drive, Turtle Bay Sheraton, Turtle Bay Parking lot, Shasta Senior Center, And Keswick Dam (entrance you the Shasta Rail trail which runs all the way to Shasta Dam. Riding from Hilltop (Fleet Feet Store) alongside highway 44 is hard way to return if you’re tired after your ride.

Sacramento River Rail Trail

Beautiful ride- part of bridge being repaired

February, 2020 by lindainda

This is a gorgeous quiet ride- not that many bikers and almost all paved. There is a gap though, right in the middle of the ride, where the fires burnt the bridge and the rails/ road have been destroyed - so unless you are an expert mountain biker and can ride around it (steeply down a canyon and back up to the other side) you will need to turn around. No biggie- as it is still and lovely ride and loops both sides of the river.

Sacramento River Trail

SERENDIPITY

February, 2019 by thejake91739

The wife and I rode the trail on a perfect September late afternoon back in 2013. On our way to bike rides in Oregon and Washington, we stopped in Redding for the night after driving all day from southern California.
With a few hours to spare before dinner, we decided to get some exercise and to bike the trail. It wasn't on our trip agenda, but what a smart decision it was!
Starting at the Sundial Bridge, we enjoyed a leisurely, serene ride up along one side of the river and then back down along the opposite side. With the exception of a couple of hills going up river that the wife hated, the trail was fairly easy for a couple of middle age fifty somethings to negotiate. I especially enjoyed the river views and going through the forest of trees on the down river side!
We'll always have fond memories of that beautiful late summer unexpected afternoon ride, and we burned enough calories after sitting in the SUV all day to justify a good dinner afterwards!

Sacramento River Trail

several sections closed

October, 2018 by adshaikh_tl

We hit trail closures from Sundial Park on both sides making it impossible to do a loop or to go very far. On the North side of the river, The Sacramento River Trail Bridge was closed so you can’t cross over to the other side there and have to turn around a backtrack. On the south side, the trail is closed at the Middle Creek Trail intersection. We ended up riding the Middle Creek Trail which travels through burned, scorched woods.

Paradise Memorial Trailway

Terrible - No stars, not one.

July, 2017 by concowshanni

Almost no shade on entire trail with miles of absolutely no shade, almost all direct sun at temps of 90-105 all summer long, no water fountains or bathrooms on entire 5 mile trail except for one park on Black Olive Rd at Pearson Rd, and the rest is miles of hot sun and nowhere to pee or get a drink if you run out of water. Not good for moms with kids. Someone will have to pee and you'll be miles from the nearest bathroom, and nowhere to covertly pee in the bushes either, as if anyone would even want to. Landscape is dry, dusty with scrubby dusty bushes, unappealing to look at. People don't clean up their dog's crap, most probably because the few garbage cans there is are miles apart too. Everywhere you look is trash, broken glass, and dried dog crap. Especially lots of trash on trail where it goes past the local high school. Smell of marijuana being smoked is also strong there. Not where I want to push my kids in their stroller so I can get some exercise. I have to either walk at the local cemetery where their are hobos lurking from the perimeter trees, but there is a bathroom and water, or drive miles away to Paradise lake trail, (with clean port-o-potty's but no drinking water), or drive miles away to Bidwell Park in Chico. It's a real pain in the *** to have to drive out of town to get some decent walking with kids or risk it with the cemetery hobos because the Paradise Train Trail is so terrible.

Chico Airport Bike Path

Homeless

June, 2017 by pvphoto

Other than the homeless and the just plain obnoxious people the route is great and I have been riding this route for many years. Recently the rest area at the top entering the airport was destroyed, and with the hot weather this could be a problem for some less fit riders!

Sacramento River Trail

Gorgeous

June, 2017 by danomccollam

My wife and I did this loop on two different occassions while visiting Redding. We had no trouble finding the trail head or sticking on the trail. The scenery as you head toward the damn is absolutely gorgeous--large boulders, spring flowers, and the beautiful blue and green colors of the fountain head of the Sacramento river.

The trail on one side of the river is almost totally flat, while the trail on the other side is a roller coaster of short up and downhill climbs. There are several creeks you cross and plenty of benches to stop and enjoy the scenery. There are even some public restrooms.

I'm sure we will do this trail on every visit to Redding.

Paradise Memorial Trailway

Sacramento River Trail

An ok Trail

June, 2015 by mjerabek

This is a well maintained trail, but very confusing for visitors. The route is through various parks, parking lots, senior centers and private neighborhoods. However, there is a total lack of directional signs. Even a simple sign with a directional arrow would be sufficient. The trail on the north side is hilly, but the trail on the south side is more of a converted rail bed. We rode the trail on a Friday and it was very busy.
