Enticingly rugged, yet nearly urban, the Swasey Recreation Area is just a hop, skip, and a jump from central Redding, but it still manages to present all the best of the wilds. The Wintu Trail wanders through classic mixed hardwood forest, grassland chaparral, and manzanita groves as it climbs a muscle-moving hillside. Bring your dog, or your horse, and don’t forget a sack lunch for the perfectly placed picnic area and million-dollar views.
