Very beautiful, peaceful hike. I wasn't prepared for the 4.5 mile trek up the side of a mountain, my mistake, so I was quite sore afterwards, and knee bothering me quite a bit on the way down the same 4.5 miles. The view at the top was amazing! Natural beauty all around. I'd do it again!

Great for kids, dogs and mountain bikers! Bring a snack and enjoy it at the picnic table up top!

I hiked beginning of May. Spectacular view at the top and pretty falls along the way! Other highlights include being surrounded by butterflies and wildflowers at multiple points. I encountered a bear over halfway up- a young adult. The bear startled at my presence and crashed through the brush about 4 yards from me before turning and loping off.

The beginning is some pretty hard uphill, I walked most of it but when you get passed the bench, the downhill is fantastic, I seriously recommend it to all local mountain bikers

Awesome trail—pretty well maintained, and we had the whole thing practically to ourselves! Took us about 3-3.5 hrs plus stop time at the top. You get glimpses of the lake on the way, and there’s a great view at the top, so go on a clear day to see Lassen and Shasta looking pristine. In drier weather, it’s ok to drive to the trailhead with the proper car, but we decided to start at the campground and get our miles in. (I think the gate was only open this weekend for a bike race anyway.)

The only con was the abundance of poison oak, but it doesn’t usually intrude on the trail. You just have to be attentive, especially in the spring when it blends in with the rest of the greenery. Also, the only other hiker we saw warned us she’d seen a bear on her way up, so as always just keep your eyes peeled!

I live in an adjacent neighborhood and we do this loop almost daily. It’s flat and paved with the option to walk nice dirt trails that run along the inside of the paved loop. Great for dog walking. Although summer gets very hot as there are no trees so you have to plan early or late walks.

Great place to see birds! Clean, well maintained, safe trail for Kids.

Absolutely beautiful! There are meadows and wildflowers as far as you can see. Extremely well maintained trail, and as a Mom; I felt extremely at ease letting my kiddo run as far ahead as I could see..... Doggo poopoo bags and two trash receptacles available also. Bring water, and your camera. Can't wait to go back!

Great hike overall. Finding the top of Mule Mountain can prove somewhat difficult, as there are a number of branching points along the trail. Solid view of Whiskey Town from the top. (Hiked January 2017)

Quick. Easy. Close to Redding. Great views. A nice way to spend an afternoon hiking. Watching the sunset from the peak is also a great time to hike Chamise- though bring a flashlight for the descent.

Love this hike! Great track. Easy to navigate. Amazing views of the mountains to the west and the valley, Mt. Shasta, the dam and even Lassen. The whole family did this one. The little ones where in the back packs and the 5 & 6 year old killed it.
This one will defiantly be on our short list.
You do have to compete with the mountain bikers but they are were pretty courteous of our crew.

I thought this trail was more difficult than the clover dale loop right next to it. An awesome trail with awesome vistas.

Beautiful area in the spring... Nice and green. Followed the track to the back of the trail and the sky fell. Scrambled back on a different route route to get out of a heavy rain. Great trail for dogs and bicyclists. The trail is wide, clay based with gravel and wide enough to support a sports wheelchair easily. There are side single track trails going everywhere in all directions...

Beautiful spring day. Beautiful trail. It runs along Keswick Lake. The foliage was fresh and green. There were quite a few wild flowers. Lots of birds singing and lizards scurrying around. Very lovely. There is poison oak along the sides of the trail. The trail is narrow as others said but, clear and easy to navigate. Overall, a very nice local hike.

Fun trail. Meant to do Piety Hill Loop but zigged when I should’ve zagged and ended up on this one. Nice trail.

This trail and Piety Loop are both decent rides. A little rocky in some spots, but plenty of beautiful scenery. You can ride 3 ways, Cloverdale, Piety and Horsetown. Plenty of turn around and ample trailer parking at the Cloverdale Trail Head.

This trail has been of great help to my recovery from lower leg reconstruction. The grades are mild and surface in great shape. Scenery changes throughout the seasons make it an all year favorite for me.

One of my favorite hikes in Redding! Trail is well maintained and a good workout but not too hard.

Great trail! Went in mid-March and endured some rain and beautiful snowfall! This time of year there are a few creeks to cross carefully and a beautiful waterfall. The hike up can be a little grueling but you can do it! There is a big clearing at the peak, and even a nice bench under a tree. The hike down is fast and easy. The whole thing took us about 3 hours.

#tenlegstosunset Tried out a new trail, which turns out to be a series of bike trails. The saved course on All Trails didn’t do much good at first since there are a variety of trails and all off shoots seemed well groomed enough. GPS and map worked well since it’s pretty close to neighborhoods and the city. It was a nice workout regardless and once I got a handle I realized it’s a good option close to home. Went late in the day, so we ran into nobody else. My concern was where I parked, not sure if it was someone’s property or an easeway.

We have ridden piety loop a couple times and it’s an easy ride. Rocky in some spots and no water where we went but for a quick ride it’s perfect. About 90 min with spots to trot or lope. The Horsetown trail connects to make a longer ride. Scenery is beautiful and no roaming dogs when we went.

Hiked from Peltier Campground up the 4x4 road (since the gate is closed in the winter) to the Kanaka Peak Trail. Enjoyed sweeping views, a seasonal waterfall and a 360• view at the top! It was a beautiful, clear Sunday morning and I could see the Trinity Alps to the west, Lassen to the East and other mountains to the north and south with rolling hills! The shaded bench will be great in the summer seeing as the top is otherwise totally exposed. I took the Kanaka Cutoff Trail back down to Logging Camp and then back to the campground. Got a little turned around, but really enjoyed my hike! The creek crossings, top views and flora and fauna are so rich! Worth the effort and will do it again!

Beautiful hike on well kept trails. Clear trail marking and a pick nick bench at the top made for a great experience.
The gradual incline makes this hike pleasant event for those of us with old sports injuries in knees and hips.

The majority of the trail is uncrowded, peaceful and scenic. The first few miles near the sundial Bridge is heavily trafficked my recommendation is to start at the Elks Lodge and head out from there.

Great for a family bike ride. It connects with the Lema bike and dog walk trails which lead to Minder Park, a sweet neighborhood playground and picnic area.

We had only done the Piety Hill Loop from the bottom on Clear Creek, but this time we started up top and connected from there. Much wider trails, warmer and brighter. Beautiful, no water as the creeks crossing were all pretty dry but we had plenty of water. The vista loop is highly recommended. No difficult parts really, so I’m not sure why they would rate the Cloverdale Loop as medium in difficulty on AllTrails. Dogs had a blast and I got a good workout! Also caught some fruity blossom smells and some bees buzzing as spring is getting an early start.

the smell of piss and human feces are just among many of the discomforts of walking downtown Redding. it is disgusting to see just how dirty the walls of buildings and sidewalks get and every corner is usually occupied by some passed out bum or prostitute looking for work. never walk alone and try not to take children.

this is a very small Loop you could shout to people on it directly on the other side of the pond and they would hear you with ease. but I appreciate that it's there I saw some fishing and of course it is an excellent place to see certain species of waterfowl a couple years ago I saw a couple of Cormorants and white egrets, usually there is a local pair of ducks that stay year-round.
