The Hornbeck Trail has it all—urban proximity, spanning vistas, swimming beaches, wildlife, and peaceful benches under shady ancient oaks. Perhaps Redding’s premier wilderness hike, the trail follows an old railroad bed across a ridge sharply cut into hillsides and then softly swoops through manzanita groves. The Sacramento Ditch Trail replaces Hornbeck Trail north of Walker Mine Road, where it parallels the handsome Sacramento River atop a high rim to Shasta Dam.
