Pretty area to walk with lots of different plants and flowers to see. If you go all the way to the back there’s a nice park area and also a kids area and picnic benches.

Well maintained trail. I took some of the offshoot trails and seen a beautiful lake and some history along the way. I would recommend this trail to be added to any hikers to do list.

This is a nice trail to enjoy with the family. We always add this loop to our ride when we ride the Sacramento River Loop. Very easy with a slight grade and is wide and paved. Always quiet on this loop.

We have done this easy loop a few times and have added a few extra loops around the area as the weather was just too beautiful to stop.

definitely a beautiful trail. went to the left and came down the mountain bike trail. lots and lots of uphill. nothing overly steep like whiskeytown but not necessarily a "easy peasy" trail. but easy for uphill training.

We took a family trip here today. It’s a little crowded at the sundial bridge but the walking paths were very secluded and we were passed by bikers many times. There are bathrooms and resting areas. Great to pack a lunch for. There was a fish viewing station where you walk down and can watch through windows as the water passes. We saw lots of wildlife including snakes, turtles, and deer! The deer were less than 10 ft from us and my kids loved it.

Nice flat stroll adjacent to the river, the Sundial Bridge Arboretum offers some sweet architecture, and is a nice place to relax and walk off a good meal in Redding. We got there on a late summer afternoon and the bright white inclined pylon really stood out against the deep blue sky. The bridge sign was very interesting, like the fact there are 2,245 glass panels in the deck of the bridge, each covering 10 square feet and can reach 150 degrees in the summer. It was an especially hot summer and my melting tennis shoes started to stick to the deck. The trail offered some welcome shade and a chance to cool off my shoes. Definitely worth a stop even if you just walk over the bridge and back.

Fun little loop. Less people than the river trail. A little more of a peaceful feel as well.

A nice trail, peaceful hike, lots of mosquitoes, good weather, went down to the water (lots of spiders going down) let my dog off the leash, came back home feeling tired but refreshed

We just got to experience this beautiful trail!!! Great trail!!!

We bike this all the time. Easy, but with pretty views of the river. This is our “go to” trail when we want to go for a decent ride without hitting the dirt.

Nice trail. Lots of wild flowers today-April 24th.

Very beautiful trail, loads of different paths you can take, but marked well.

love this good place for my dog and me

Nice thought from the city... It's signed on the other end as Angler's Trail as a fishing access. The trail is pretty ugly because when the river flows are really high it flows partially through this area but the river views were very good. It was my 4th trail along I-5 on a work trip and the worst but still worth seeing the river. Took a couple shots of a turkey on the trail.

Loved it! Some nice uphill sections give you a good workout, and the picnic area at the peak is very cool. Lots of flowers and butterflies this time of year (late March), and a little running creek. But we ending up on Meiner loop somehow and had to hike a little ways up Delano road back to the parking lot

Great trail for jogging, we’ve also biked and roller bladed here!

A scenic moderately difficult trail. It’s definitely more single than double track if plan on going with friends. Not really kid friendly.

extremely easy walk paved the entire way. this is my regular area as I live very close and take my children for stroller rides and rollerblading quite often.

I appreciate any Trail for what it is and what it provides for the community and tourists alike. I took this Trail and Mountain biked the whole thing I love the many changes in grade; and the many different scenerys it has lots of different pockets of little areas some nice and full of shade and others with a beautiful view and full sun.

Nice little paved walk.

nice walk, completely paved, slight incline, great views of sacramento river and oaks

The trail itself is easy, peaceful. The parking lot coming in is sketchy.

Nice quiet trail, I'd say more of a moderate hike just because the trail is rough and there's a lot of up and down. The bottom half of the loop was actually the toughest because it looks as if it's designed for biking, so you have to be careful not to slip. Pretty westward views along the highest points.

Nice trail and signage. The views were a little above average.

Great for walking!

Great everyday use trail for running, biking, or walking with the kids. Lots of traffic, but everyone if friendly and respectful.

Well traveled very easy walking trail. Not many views of the Sacramento River though. Pretty dull trail with no great views. We went off trail to get to the river and cool off in the water due to hot temperatures (104). Great if you're in the mood for a nice walk, I don't recommend it if you are looking to hike and see good views. Also not recommended in Redding summer heat over 100.

Well groomed trail with a decent amount of shade. It was definitely designed for mountain biking more than hiking, but it was beautiful nonetheless. Pretty good incline- gets the heart pumping!
