Today, the team at SJ Denham Chrysler Jeep Fiat is here to guide you through some of our favorite attractions near Redding, CA, which you can enjoy behind the wheel of an adventure-ready new Jeep Wrangler.

Lassen Volcanic National Park

Located about 45 minutes east of Redding via CA-44 East, Lassen Volcanic National Park offers a variety of geothermal wonders. This includes the bubbling mud pots of Bumpass Hell and the volcanic rocks of the Devastated Area. You can get in touch with these awesome natural wonders by joining their Volcano Club! Kids can enroll in Volcano Adventure Camp or become a Junior Ranger to engage with the park and learn about forestry. The park also frequently hosts school trips and offers tons of resources for students to enjoy!

Sacramento River National Recreation Trail

Crossing through the heart of Redding at the well-known and historic Sundial Bridge, Sacramento River National Recreation Trail winds along an abandoned railroad and continues north up to the Shasta Da, offering an abundance of beautiful sites and scenery along the way. This scenic pathway offers a natural alternative for fitness enthusiasts looking to jog, cycle, or walk outside in the stunning Anderson-area wilderness.

Turtle Bay Exploration Park and Museum

Turtle Bay Exploration Park and Museum offer a natural wonderland for visitors from Chico to Red Bluff to enjoy! Through conservation and education, Turtle Bay Exploration Park and Museum forges a bond between the natural wildlife and community. There are over 60 different species of animals to learn about and you can even get up close and personal with the Parrot Playhouse program and more. Inside the museum, you will find art, history, science, and forestry exhibits galore! This is a great place for families, friends, and weekend adventures.

Castle Crags State Park

Castle Crags State Park is more than worth the beautiful 3-hour drive up I-5 North. Experience these dramatic rock formations ranging from 2,000 feet to 6,500 feet for yourself to see why. Castle Crags State Park is a one-of-a-kind attraction our proud local staff members love to frequent. You can camp and fish for the weekend at one of the 76 developed campsites or come out for an afternoon picnic!

Lake Shasta Caverns

The Lake Shasta Caverns are natural landmarks that have been around for well over 250 million years. You can enjoy a dinner cruise, cavern tours, and unique dining when you visit the Lake Shasta Caverns. The largest manmade lake in the state of California, Lake Shasta is the result of Shasta Dam, a concrete arch-gravity dam across the Sacramento River and one of the largest dams in the country.

Whiskeytown National Recreation Area

Located less than 10 miles west of Redding, Whiskeytown National Recreation Area just touches the northern edge of the Sacramento Valley where it meets the Klamath Mountain range, offering an immense range of diversity in terms of flora, fauna, and geography.
