The Iron Canyon Trail is located just outside of Red Bluff on Highway 36.  It’s typically done as a 4 mile loop with the main attraction being a nice view of the Sacramento River as it makes a turn through Iron Canyon.  Along the way you also cross several other creeks and “mini-canyons.”  The trail is rocky at times so be sure to wear sturdy footwear.  Dogs and bikes are allowed, camping is not.
