Redding is located in Northern California, half way between the Pacific Ocean and the border with Nevada. It is a 2-hour drive going north on Interstate 5 to border with Oregon. The city is at the north end of California's Central Valley. It is surrounded by hills and mountains, with the volcanic peak of Mount Lassen to the west and Mount Shasta to the north. The Sacramento River flows right through town. The beautiful Shasta Lake is 13 miles north, offering many outdoor recreation opportunities. The climate is of damp winters and hot summers. 

Sacramento River Trail and Sacramento River Rail-Trail

The Sacramento River Trail and the Sacramento River Rail-Trail are a network of paved trails that travel alongside the Sacramento River through Redding and then north to a point about a mile from Shasta Dam and Lake Shasta. Much of the route for these trails was built on the beds of abandoned rail lines.

The Sacramento River Trail connects several parks and other points of interest in the Downtown Redding area including Turtle Bay Exploration Park, Sundial Bridge, the Redding Visitor Center and Turtle Bay Exploation Park.
