Famous Sundial Bridge, Picturesque Lakes, & a Recreational Paradise

California’s largest city north of Sacramento, Redding is a recreational hub boasting everything from world-class fishing on the renowned Sacramento River to the educational Turtle Bay Exploration Park. The internationally-renowned Sundial Bridge stretches over the Sacramento River as part of Redding’s 36-mile network of trails.

Shasta Lake, the largest lake in California, holds the title of “Houseboat Capitol of the World”. The lake was formed by Shasta Dam, the tallest center overflow dam in the world. Lake Shasta Caverns, dated at least 200 million years, are made entirely of limestone and feature every type of possible formation, including stalactites, stalagmites, soda straws, columns and flowstone.

Off Highway 44E is the northern entrance to Lassen Volcanic National Park. Just north of the park are the Subway Cave Lava Tubes, an underground, easily-explored volcanic phenomenon.

For further information contact the Redding Convention and Visitor's Bureau, Shasta Lake Chamber of Commerce, Burney Chamber of Commerce or Fall River Valley Chamber of Commerce.

Castle Crags State Park

Castle Crags State Park's awe-inspiring granite towers and spires were formed 200 million years ago by volcanic activity. While Crags Trail is a steep hike, perseverance is rewarded with breathtaking views of the Crags and Mount Shasta.

Theodore Roosevelt called McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park the “eighth wonder of the world” with its magnificent 129-foot Burney Falls, which flows at 100 million gallons of water every day.
