Most people come to Redding, CA for one reason: Skiing. Mt. Shasta Ski Park, one of the most coveted ski destinations in Northern California, is just a thirty-minute drive from downtown Redding. Of course, who wouldn’t want to ski while here? Just east of Interstate 5, the ski area lies around 6 miles south of the volcano’s summit. With a total skiable vertical of 1,390 feet and 425 acres of skiable land, this is a great place to spend a winter day. However, our little town has much more to offer. Our favorite? Mountain biking.
We started this project in conjunction with some other folks in Redding tourism. Sure, this is a great destination in the winter, but Redding is a great destination in every season. Surrounded by mountains, miles of hiking, a roaring river, and access to several national parks, Redding has established itself as a four-season town. Though we are interested in the abundance of mountain biking opportunities, our city is full of museums, public art pieces, world-class architecture, and music venues. With something to offer for every visitor and resident, Redding is a wonderful destination in every season.
Thus, this site serves several purposes. Primarily, we want mountain biking enthusiasts (both locals and tourists) to use our trail reviews to plan trips. Additionally, we will host a database of nearby bike shops should you want to replace parts, shop locally, or meet other mountain bikers. You may come to Redding for the skiing, but we hope you stay for the biking.
