Tehama Trail Passport Weekend
The Tehama Trail is a journey that begins in Corning, visiting world-class olive and olive oil producers. A short trip to the east finds you in Vina where the Monks of the Abbey of New Clairveaux practice ancient traditions of grape growing and wine making. On the way north to the Volcanic Vineyards of Manton, there are several interesting stops on Hwy 99 worth the stop. After sampling the wines of the slopes of Mt. Lassen, the trail takes you to Historic Downtown Red Bluff where quaint shoppes and riverfront dining are a way of life.
The stops along the trail include:
Rolling Hills Casino
Lucero Olive Oil and Retail Store
Corning Olive Oil
Bell Carter Olive Co.
New Clairvaux Vineyards
Julia’s Fruit Stand
Sacramento River Discovery Center
Indian Peak Vineyards
Shasta Daisy Vineyard
Cedar Crest Vineyards & Winery
You may want to get off the trail and head to Mt. Lassen Volcanic National Park and the St. Bernard Lodge for dinner and a room. Travel to the Indian Valley the next day and visit Indian Falls just south of Crescent Mills on Hwy 89. Travel down the Feather River Canyon on 70 back to I -5. This gives you a chance to do something different and have a great weekend.
