Friends of the Redding Trails

Friends of the Redding Trails is a group of people focused on supporting the  valuable trail system in the Redding area that connects our homes, businesses, parks and local attractions.  Co-Directors are  Linda Masterson and Peter Alexander.

Projects include monitoring of trails to see what needs to be addressed, communication with city agencies about concerns and opportunities, periodic clean-up projects, and hosting community events to help everyone learn about and enjoy the trails.
