Sacramento River Trail Access Professional Reviews and Guides

"This has to be the best-kept secret of California’s rail-trail system. The trail follows the broad Sacramento River up a beautiful canyon to a striking “stress ribbon” bridge, then arcs back along the river’s opposite bank to the trailhead. It also links to a 5-mile loop through the stunning Redding Arboretum. Surface: Asphalt and concrete."

"If your impression of Redding is the choking gas fumes and fast-food neon along the busy Cypress Avenue exit off I-5, then you’re missing an oasis just a few miles from the bustle of the freeway."

"The Sacramento River Trail, which the city plans to extend once the Santiago Calatrava–designed Sundial Bridge is completed in the summer of 2004, won the American Trails Association’s 2002 Best Trail Award. It is one of the last places along the Sacramento—at 377 miles California’s longest river—where you can see the riparian forest as it was when the first settlers rode wagon trains to the water’s edge. From the parking area to the unique concrete ribbon footbridge that spans the river near Keswick Dam and along the north side of the trail to the historic Diestelhorst Bridge (built in 1918) and back to the parking area is 6.8 miles; this hike highlights the southside trail to the ribbon bridge and back, which is a 6-mile trip."
