Redding

Visit Redding
Redding, the jumping off point to the Shasta Cascade region, is a DogTrekker paradise. It’s home to Shasta Cascade’s most impressive manmade landmark, the Sundial Bridge that spans the Sacramento River and part of a 16-mile, dog-friendly paved trail that runs along the river from Redding to Shasta Dam.

If you want the best in dog-friendly travel, Redding Shasta Cascade is your destination. Visit here to explore the rest of the Shasta Cascade.

Go for a Gusher With Your Dog

OK, COVID-19 cost us some waterfall viewing time during their March/April peak flows, but the many waterfalls within an easy drive of where you are staying in Redding are still flowing.

For a quick taste, visit Hedge Creek Falls in Dunsmuir. It’s right off Interstate 5 via a short path, has a generous parking lot, a viewing platform for photo opps and a cave beneath the falls for sensory thrills (your dog may or may not want to go there, so be alert!) more »

Like to hike? You’re in luck in the Trail Capital of California, as Redding has so aptly branded itself. The city boasts some 80 miles of trails within its city limits and hundreds more within a 20-mile radius of its core.

A heads up: there are still a few trails closed in the Whiskeytown area, but other than annual maintenance, most of the region's trails are open, and most are dog-friendly. You can check the status of your favorite trail by clicking on the link above and viewing the Trail System Overview tab.   more »

A month from now, the epic waterfalls of the Shasta-Cascade region in Northern California will be gushing in spectacular fashion. That said, the cascades on the McCloud River —Lower, Middle and Upper—are mind-blowing at any time of year. They’re connected by a 1.5-mile-long trail that deserves leisure exploration. To give yourself time to wander (and take a selfie or three!), hole up at one of dozens of cabin retreats in and around Shasta Lake, the state’s biggest reservoir, and let serendipity be your guide. One of our winter favs just outside Redding are the four dog-friendly Silverthorn Resort cabins. more »

Redding (population about 100,000) is the Shasta Cascade region’s largest city, and it’s a great place to make base camp with your four-legged friend. The “must-do” activities: stroll the iconic Sundial Bridge, wander the Sacramento River National Recreation Trail, walk across the massive dam containing the waters of Shasta Lake, largest reservoir in California. more »
