Stay Safe in Redding
A visit to Redding will be a safe one, as long as you follow the most basic precautions. Keeping your valuables safe and taking steps to be safe out in nature are a few actions you can take to help avoid any issues during your stay here. Redding is still a city, so crime exists, and Mother Nature has the final say when it comes to inclement weather or wildfires. Staying up to date with what’s happening is an easy way to make sure the only bumps in your trip are the ones you’re hiking or biking over!
When out on the trails or paddling along the waterways, safety should be a priority. Wearing a life vest when boating and lacing up the right shoes for hiking are just a few tips to consider. Stay hydrated, wear SPF, and be sure to pay attention to new terrain as you engage in adventure travel in Redding. Exploring waterfalls and caves sounds thrilling, and it is, but be sure to do your research beforehand to know what to expect and avoid being caught off guard. And of course, wildlife always has the right of way, and they are best appreciated from a distance. Have more questions? Stop into our Visitors Center to ask us directly.
