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.

Water, sun, stars, memories. A houseboating vacation provides them all, plus a lot of novelty for first-timers.

While Shasta Lake is justly known as the house-boating capital of California, it’s not the only body of water where you can herd your friends and family (including your pup, of course) aboard and say “anchors aweigh” on a slow-moving, waterborne vacation. more »

Take a Spring Hike Around Redding

Take a Spring Hike Around Redding

Redding calls itself California’s Trail Capital, and for good reason: about 100 miles of dog-friendly trails, both paved and natural-surface, have been developed in and around the city through private and public partnerships. Spring is a particularly nice time to take in the views from the Upper Sacramento Ditch Trail, which traces the route of a historic waterworks that once supplied miners’ sluice boxes. Three bridges along the northern part of the path span gorges that gush with waterfalls in springtime and offer arresting views of Shasta Lake and Keswick Reservoir at any time of year.

Never heard of Keswick Reservoir? This river-like body of water stretching nine miles downstream from Shasta Dam is the iconic lake’s frigid, turquoise-blue afterbay. The recently paved and very scenic Sacramento River Rail Trail follows a historic railroad alignment for almost 11 miles along its western shore, offering views aplenty, multiple points of entry and ample opportunity to branch off onto dirt paths leading into the rugged hills. more »

Lace up your hiking boots, load Lucy into the car and get a grip on your leash: you’ll need it when you see how excited she’ll become upon encountering a multitude of new sights and smells in dog-friendly Redding, your gateway to the eight-county Shasta Cascade region. On a clear day, the 13,162-foot, snow-covered cone of Mount Shasta fills the windshield during the 2.5-hour drive up Interstate 5 from Sacramento. It’s a looming landmark and constant reminder that you’re leaving the Central Valley behind and entering the rugged landscapes of the Cascade range. more »
