Visiting California's Shasta Cascade Region | Late-Summer 2014

The students are returning to class for the fall semester at Chico State University, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t still time for summer fun in Chico. Bidwell Park is an ideal place to make the most out of the remaining warm days. Made up of two parks, the Upper Park and the Lower Park, the area draws hikers to venture to all-natural swimming spots like Salmon Hole and Bear Hole, while Sycamore Pond, called One-Mile by locals, is even more ideal for a dip. One-Mile dams up water from Big Chico Creek and offers concrete decks and walls built right in.

Redding, the county seat of Shasta County, is also primed for outdoor fun amid beautiful, towering mountain ranges. Spend an afternoon boating, fishing and relaxing on Shasta Lake, which is known for its pristine waters and clear air. For those who’d rather stay dry, McArthur Burney Falls Memorial State Park is great for a lengthy hike or bike ride.

Families visiting Redding with kids won’t want to miss a chance to let them experience Turtle Bay Exploration Park. Boasting 300 acres of hands-on fun, the museum complex features science museum, arboretum, and botanical gardens, live animals, a summer wildlife show, and the year-round Parrot Playhouse.

Runners congregate in the Cascades for the 2014 Bizz Johnson Trail Marathon on October 11th and 12th. Starting in Mason Station and ending in Susanville, in the heart of the Lassen National Forest, the Bizz Johnson Trail tests skill and endurance with this year's Express Half Marathon, 10-km Half Marathon, and the 50-km main event Marathon.

Animal lovers assemble in Mount Shasta and neighboring McCloud on November 29th for the 2014 McCloud Dog and Pony Show. Starting at noon on the annual parade sends dogs, ponies, bicyclists, vintage cars, and floats down Main Street. In addition to the procession, an array of food and goods vendors will be on hand, there will be Christmas craft making, and the kids can even meet the one and only Santa Claus.
