Next Meetup

Horseshoe, Indian & Juniper Lakes Loop
The last 3 hikes this year are also amongst the most beautiful, and if like last year, virtually hiker free! This is a 6.4 mile round trip hike rated moderate. The hike starts at the north shore of Juniper Lake. We have a .6 mile ascent to start the hike thru a forest of lodgepole pine, western white pines and red firs. We'll reach Horseshoe Lake at 1.4 miles. Next is a steep climb, offering views of Lassen Peak & Chaos Crags. A side trail takes us to Indian Lake at 2.8 miles. We'll follow Juniper Lake's west shore 2.3 miles to complete the loop. To reach the trailhead: We'll meet at the Visitor's Center in Anderson, drive via Hiway 36 to the town of Chester (89 miles) and to the trailhead, another 13 miles, to Juniper Lake where the hike begins. The last 8-9 miles are on a bumpy, dirt road, park pass required. You should bring: Water, sunscreen, hat, good hiking boots or shoes, snack/lunch, camera, and a few bucks to pass along to the driver. We'll stop in at the Mineral Lodge Saloon for burgers and cold drinks on the way home. The lodge is a true slice of Americana with a nice patio. Carpool with like minded if not wanting to stop. RSVP's open July 25th.

What we're about

Redding Ramblers is a Redding hiking group that was formed in the Redding area with the goal of gathering people together to have fun, while getting plenty of exercise and making new friends. Our hikes will vary in length and difficulty and we will be frequenting the local trails, mostly in the Redding area.

Redding is a great place to go hiking and walking. Our weekend hikes will generally be on a Saturday or Sunday and will frequent local parks and recreation areas such as the Swasey Recreation Area, Whiskeytown National Recreation Area, Westside Trails, Mule Ridge Trails, Cloverdale trails and more. We will usually start the hikes around 9:00 a.m. with the goal of being finished around noon or 1:00 p.m. at the latest. This group is free and to anyone who abides by the guidelines in our Hiking Disclaimer. Please be sure to read our Hiking Disclaimer ( before joining the Redding Ramblers Hiking Group.

Hope to see you on the trails!
