- Caltrans District 2
Aaron Casas (530) 225-4732
Welcome to the District 2 Cycling Resource Page!
District 2 extends from Trinity, Tehama, and Plumas Counties northward through Shasta and Lassen Counties to Siskiyou and Modoc Counties to the Oregon border. All State and U.S. Routes in these counties are open to cyclists except for a few designated sections which have alternate routes identified in the Caltrans District 2 Cycling Guide.
Cyclists in District 2 travel through towns big and small. In the bigger towns, a cyclist can expect to find many services available - stores, restaurants, hotels, and service stations. In the smaller towns, these services may be limited or non-existent. Travelers should plan ahead as they may encounter many miles of highway with few or no services. A list of area Chambers of Commerce in the cycle guide will help travelers determine the availability of services in each community.

-Dana to Downtown Bike Path
Completed in 2010, the path from Dana Drive to the Turtle Bay Museum and Sundial Bridge area offers pedestrians and bicyclists a route between the east and west sides of city. The path travels from the east under Interstate 5 to westbound State Route 44 through a dedicated tunnel. It then moves up an incline to the surface of the bridge deck, crossing the Sacramento River. There, it offers a wide path separated from the traffic on SR 44 by both guardrail and concrete median barrier with several "bulb outs" or viewing areas where the public can enjoy the river and all it has to offer. The path leaves the bridge deck and travels down a slope to connect with the river trail system at Sundial Bridge Drive.
