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.

A couple notes, if you have to park behind the gate because it’s locked, the trail is not to your right. That is a mountain bike trail. Walk forward about 200 yards and you will find a sign and a paved trail the entire way. It’s super easy but not much to see. For taking kids, (bikes, strollers) it’s great.

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.

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.

love this good place for my dog and me

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!

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.

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.
