With 100 miles of trails within 10 miles of Redding’s city center, and many more beyond, it’s easy to understand why Redding is considered to be the Trail Capital of California. These trails of varying degrees of difficulty, from easy to rolling hills to moderate climbs, have one thing in common – both you and your pups are welcome. As you walk along these trails, you’ll see wildlife, wildflowers and spectacular scenery, including Mount Shasta, Mount Lassen and other peaks of the Shasta Cascade.
