Visitors to the rolling, brushy hills near Shasta Lake in northern California will find off-highway vehicle (OHV) riding challenges for all abilities. More than 250 miles of roads and trails are open to motorcyclists, all-terrain vehicle drivers and four-wheelers. The area is near massive Shasta Dam and Shasta Lake, and there are overlooks of the Sacramento River below the dam. Wildlife species in the area include osprey, bald eagle, mule deer, and bear. The area, named for former U. S. Congressman Eugene Chappie, is open year-round.
Ten miles northeast of Redding, west of Shasta Dam. Take Interstate 5 to Shasta Dam exit. Travel west on Shasta Dam Boulevard to Shasta Dam. Continue west across dam, staying on paved road to the staging area.
