"May your trails be crooked, winding, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds" - Edward Abbey

Crooked? Check. Winding? Check. Dangerous? A few…. Amazing views, rising mountains, trails that reach into the clouds? Got ‘em all. The excellent mountain biking around in Redding is a well-kept secret. Redding may be known for recreation on its river and lakes and the pristine beauty of Sundial Bridge, but it doesn’t skimp on rough riding, either. On any given sunny day, and there are 300 each year in Redding, single track riders can be found hurtling through the mountains around Whiskeytown National Recreation Area, Chappie-Shasta, the Lower Sacramento Ditch Trail, and many more. There’s so much land in the foothills around Redding, you’d have a hard time not finding prime mountain biking in any direction of city limits. 

Redding is also famous for its Lemurian Shasta Classic- one of the oldest and most famous mountain biking races in the West. Riders from all over come to Redding every April to attempt the Lemurian’s epic loop. For the everyday rider, bike shops and mountain biking clubs around town offer great resources for gear and insider tips. To learn more about the Shasta Lemurian Trails, see "Name that Trail." Well…. Are you ready to get some mud on those tires? Check out mountain biking trails online for Redding, Whiskeytown, and Mt. Shasta.
