Route 36

The road starts just south of Eureka and takes drivers east across a range of topographies and into the Lassen National Forest. Route 36 links Historic Hwy 101 and U.S. Route 395 and is a top choice for motorcycle riders because of the stunning scenery and its winding design.

The Sacramento River passes through Redding and down to Red Bluff, creating some majestic scenery along the way, but none may be more stunning than the Sacramento River Bend. This outstanding natural area is quiet and unpopulated, the perfect contrast to the chaos of the city. Explore the hiking trails, kayak, fish, boat, or just bring a book and take in the peace and quiet.
