This trail travels through a canyon near a seasonal creek and the old Blue Gravel Mine, once a gold mine in the area operated by the city. Relics from this era are still visible from the trail. Much of the trail offers trees and shade. The trail is especially beautiful in the springtime when wildflowers and butterflies abound. Trail connects to the Holiday Market shopping center which includes restaurants and other services.

This trail is on the edge of Redding California and is an all asphalt trail. I enjoyed the trail even though I didn’t get away from the city and the traffic. I’m glad I walked this trail and for anyone that likes a new trail each time out take the time to include this trail as one you have walked.
