Laid-back, small, and sun-drenched, Corning, CA sits nineteen miles south of Red Bluff, tucked between the Shasta Trinity and Lassen National Forests. An old railway town, Corning is now best known for being among the United State’s premium spots for olive growing.
Though Corning might be compact, it has a strong community spirit. Visit in October and you and your pooch can take part in the annual Olive Festival! Not only will you two get to sample some prime produce and attend the parade, but you'll also enjoy a ringside seat for the quirky annual Bed Race, which is exactly what it sounds like. Small town or not, Corning certainly has room for a veterinary clinic, and you’ll find 24-hour care available in nearby Orland.
Corning doesn’t have its own dog park, but that doesn’t mean that you and your buddy are bound to be bored! Both Northside Park and Woodston Park are lovely spots for a leashed walk, and the latter also has access to the Sacramento River. Not only that, but you’ll find some fantastically fur-friendly hiking options right on your doorstep. You’ll need to dive a little to get the best for your buddy, but you’ll find plenty of opportunities for off-leash adventures just a little further away in the surrounding area!
