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.

We have a $12 annual membership dues to cut down on non-participation and to assist us in the cost of running our meet-up site and to fund an annual picnic for the group. If you would like to lead at least one hike a year, or help in planning hikes/events, your membership dues can be waived.

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 (http://www.meetup.com/ReddingRamblersHikingGroup/pages/Hiking_Disclaimer/) before joining the Redding Ramblers Hiking Group.

Hope to see you on the trails!

Squaw Valley Creek

Shopko Redding

I am hoping for a spring hike along Squaw Valley Creek. This is a 8.2 mile hike, and while it is rated easy, it is rocky in places, so you'll want to wear good hiking boots or shoes. The hike follows the creek for the most part, beautiful, flowing cataracts, and the sound of flowing waters will keep us company for much of the hike. We normally have lunch where the creek flows across the trail at the halfway point. Everyone has the choice to return the way we came or cross the creek and take the shorter route uphill. **More info posted shortly.
