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. Depending on the time of year, we may venture further afield to places like Lassen National Park, Castle Crags and the Mt. Shasta area. This is primarily an adult hiking group. By joining this group you are confirming that you are at least 18 years old. Also - unless an event is labeled as family-friendly, please do not bring children under the age of 18. Please be sure to read our Hiking Disclaimer below before joining the Redding Ramblers Hiking Group.

MEMBERSHIP: In order to keep our group small, we strive to limit our membership to around 100 members. If we're full, we'll add you in as soon as a space comes available. Those who have been inactive for six months or more will be removed from the group to make room for new members.

KIDS: Unless an event is labeled as family-friendly, please do not bring children under the age of 18.

PETS: Our hikes are for adults only and no dogs please (thank you for your understanding). – Not all hikers like dogs and not all trails are suitable for dogs so this is for the safety and comfort of the entire group.
Hope to see you on the trails!
