Clear Creek Greenway

The Clear Creek Greenway offers hiking, biking, horseback riding, wildlife viewing and swimming all within a short drive from Redding. Horsetown Clear Creek Preserve is managed cooperatively with a private non-profit group which offers guided hikes and events during the Spring and Fall. Stop at the Clear Creek Gorge Overlook and watch fall run Chinook Salmon spawning in the creek below. Salmon viewing is best between October 1 and December 1. Take a short hike around the rim trail to the east for great views into the canyon. Interpretive displays near the salmon viewing platform describe the mining history of the area, Native American culture, wildlife, native plants, and the salmon life cycle.
