REDDING, Calif., June 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Make Redding, CA your hub city for a peak-bagging or night hike adventure. Peak bagging, by the way, is when hikers and mountaineers attempt to reach the summit of a collection of peaks. Situated at the northern end of the Sacramento River Valley, two hours north of Sacramento and three hours northeast of San Francisco, Redding is centrally located in the heart of the mountainous great outdoors of Shasta Cascade, and it offers great dining, lodging, and entertainment - the perfect starting point for expeditions into one of America's most spectacular regional destinations. With mountains, lakes and rivers all around and national parks nearby, Redding is an outdoor paradise, especially for those interested in peak bagging and night hiking.
"Redding is the perfect starting point for a hiking adventure or a peak bagging experience like no other," says Kallie Markle, Communications Coordinator for the Redding Convention and Visitors Bureau. "We have hundreds of miles of trails within a 15-mile radius of downtown Redding and are surrounded by some of the most spectacular mountains in the entire state."
Triple the Peaks
There are so many climbs to choose from in Shasta Cascade, what's a peak bagger to do? The editors at Weekend Sherpa, the e-magazine to outdoor adventurers throughout California, have put together a list of their three favorite ascents:
If peak bagging is not on your bucket list, perhaps night hiking is. The warm summer nights can provide the backdrop for experiences that are beyond comprehension, where even the most familiar landscapes can take on a new look, feel and essence. Across foothills, grasslands, hilltops, high-country granite slabs and volcanic plug domes – or anywhere you get above the trees – you'll find a moonlit charm that is cast for miles. It can be beautiful, haunting and awesome, all at the same moment.
