Northern California’s eight-county Shasta Cascade region is lean on population but incredibly rich in recreational opportunity.

Seven national forests, three mountain ranges, a national park, a national monument, two national wilderness areas, 15 state parks, countless lakes, the city of Redding and some of the West’s most acclaimed fishing streams put the region high on the list of possibilities for outdoor-oriented vacationing with your dog.

Dog-friendly hotels and resorts dot a region that encompasses Plumas, Lassen, Modoc, Tehama, Siskiyou, Trinity, Shasta and Butte counties.

If you crave a change of scenery, you’ll get it many times over in the eight-county Shasta Cascade region. The lightly traveled North State is a treasure trove of mountainous scenery, history and small towns that charm. What’s not to like?  A paws-up warning: Dog access is restricted, to various degrees, at the places set forth below. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have a woofing good time with your four-legged companion, even where leashes are required. Here we go with some suggestions. more »

Go for a Gusher With Your Dog

OK, it hasn’t been a very wet winter. Nevertheless, the many waterfalls within easy striking distance of Redding will be gushing at peak flow in March and April. 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 »

Bringing the gang to Redding? Bunk down at a pet-friendly hotel like the Sheraton Redding Hotel at Sundial Bridge or the Hotel Gaia in nearby Anderson. They’re both on the Sacramento River, adjacent to trails and attractions.  Either makes a great base camp for a family getaway (see other dog-friendly lodging options here). 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 »
