This Just In: All Hail A New Rail Trail!

By: DogTrekker Staff

Hikers, bikers and DogTrekkers have a great new resource in the Great Shasta Rail Trail, which had its ribbon cutting in September and will eventually stretch 80 miles from McCloud (Siskiyou County to Burney (Shasta County), both about an hour from Redding.

The segments open so far include a 13-mile stretch from Pilgrim Creek Road to Bartle, a 13-mile branch trail from Bartle to Hambone and an 11-mile section from Burney to the Lake Britton “Stand By Me” railroad trestle. The Great Shasta Rail Trail Association and Shasta Land Trust have been instrumental in making this long-term project a reality.
