Explore Outdoor Recreation in Upstate California

There's a lot more to California than just palm trees and Golden Gates! Explore the magnificent far northern California landscape and you'll find awesome granite spires, beautiful painted dunes, breathtaking waterfalls, and the only bridge in the world that functions as a sundial!

Redding is centrally located in the heart of the great outdoors, and the opportunity for recreation is vast and varied. Surrounded on three sides by millions of acres of public land including Whiskeytown National Recreation Area, Lassen Volcanic National Park, McArthur Burney Falls Memorial State Park, spectacular Mt. Shasta, and the pristine Trinity Alps, Redding is the perfect base camp for exploring the hotbed of adventure travel in California! Redding is also home to the magnificent Sundial Bridge, the newly renovated Cascade Theatre, Turtle Bay Exploration Park, and the Sacramento River National Recreation Trail.

Numerous backcountry roads and scenic highways and byways--including the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway All American Road--offer a great alternative when traveling to your favorite outdoor destination. Don't forget to bring your GPS so you can experience GeoCaching--there are nearly 200 geocaches in the Redding area just waiting to be discovered!
