Swing Up north for fun #ExploRedding

Morning

The best way to start your day is at Benton Airpark Café, the home of the best breakfast burritos in Redding. Pick up a bacon Monster Breakfast Burrito to go – one of those per person should be enough to fuel you and your party up for the commute north to Mount Shasta Resort for your 18-hole round of golf.

The professionally designed course at Mount Shasta Resort offers unparalleled views of the mighty Mt. Shasta and the natural alpine terrain makes you feel like you are playing in the woods. You won’t find a more scenic golf setting in UpStateCA.

Afternoon

After wrapping up your round, head 10 minutes south on I-5 to Dunsmuir for a quick hike to Hedge Creek Falls. Take the Siskiyou Avenue exit 732 and you’ll find the trailhead at a small picnic area across the road from the parking lot. The easy 0.25-mile hike along the well-maintained trail takes you into a canyon where the little scenic waterfall shines in an intimate way. Take advantage of the unique opportunity to walk behind the cascading water in a small cave which offers a different viewing perspective.

Complete the day with a dining experience like no other at the Dining Car Restaurant located in the Railroad Park Resort, only a six-minute drive from the waterfall trailhead. The restaurant is entrenched in nostalgia inside an authentic 1927 Steam Driven Locomotive railroad car and museum where you can see antique hand tools, photos, and other artifacts of the railroading days from the Southern Pacific Cascade. Make sure to order the Orange Blossom Special to drink and try the sumptuous prime rib if you go on a Friday or Saturday.
