Explore the most popular river trails near Redding with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

This is an easy trail and one I enjoy. Especially when starting from the hilltop trailhead. It adds incline.

this Trail is awesome to do

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.

Absolutely love the views, and it is the perfect balance of challenging and doable to make the ride a very worthwhile experience.

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.

Amazing trail!

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.

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

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

love this good place for my dog and me

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
