“A great, LONG, out-and-back route, with 40+ miles in the dirt.”— Ryan Schuppert
Family Friendly A mellow series of trails and you can turn around and go back whenever.
After a half mile, turn left and go over the Sacramento River Trail - Bridge Connector and continue straight onto FB Trail. Continue for 2.5 miles, cross Keswick Dam Blvd and continue north on FB Trail.
After another 5.2 miles, stay left towards FB Trail, following signs to FB/Hornbeck Trail. At the 10.2-mile mark, look for the Hornbeck Trail entering from the right and turn left onto the Hornbeck Trail. Continue on the Hornbeck Trail until the parking area on Walker Mine Rd and head north onto the Upper Sac Ditch Trail.
This trail will end at Shasta Dam Blvd, Hwy 151, around the the 21-mile mark. You can end here if you've left a car at this point for a shuttle, or turn around and do the ride the other way.
You can also go over Shasta Dam, down the paved Coram Road on your left until the bottom of the hill. There you'll see the paved Sacramento River Trail, which you can take all the way back to where you parked.
You can choose to park at Shasta Dam and ride the trail backwards also as it rides great in both directions.
