Until I saw this map, I didn’t realize just how large and extensive a trail system awaits off road riders and mountain bikers in the mountains just northwest of Redding:
Just 10 miles northwest of Redding, the Chappie-Shasta Off-Highway Vehicle area offers over 200 miles of roads and trails on approximately 52,000 acres for off-road enthusiasts. Elevation within this area ranges from 600 to 5000 feet with a wide variety of topography, soil, and vegetation types. The southeastern portions offer rocky and challenging terrain, while the more remote northwestern portions offer scenic views of Mt. Shasta, Lake Shasta, and the Trinity Alps. Camping is available adjacent to the staging area below Shasta Dam for a minimal fee. The OHV Area contains many private land parcels and several roads and trails cross these parcels. Please stay on existing trails.
Directions: This includes descriptions of the Chappie-Shasta OHV staging area, Shasta Campground, the Copley Mountain OHV staging area, and the Big Gulch Area.
Looks like you could spend a lot of quality time just checking out all the trails here. Outdoor quality time, that’s Really Redding.
