Great for a morning walk or a safe place to jog. Easy to find with relatively no elevation, good for all ages and dogs are welcome.

The walk was nice. Paved road. The river definitely best part of the walk. Down side....lots of homeless in park. Best part was the Turtle Bay Museum was right there! It was well worth it. Much more than I expected.

A excellent feature for any city. I take the family and dog on walks here often. There are so many things for the kids to stop and observe and learn about. It is well-maintained and interesting to say the least.

The scenery is plentiful for picture taking. Turtle Bay offers some awesome sculptures and a vast array of gardens to walk thru and explore. My friend and I have walked here many times and will continue to do so.

I usually cycle this paved trail and include it in the ride on the Sacramento River Trail. This gives me about 10-11 miles total ride. Views of surrounding mountains. And you are right in the middle of Redding. Depending on day of week and time of day this trail can be all yours. More folks get our on sunny, warm days and weekends.
