The City of TrinidadThe City of Trinidad is a picturesque town situated along the North Coast in Humboldt County. It is just 15 miles north of the Arcata/Eureka Airport and is easily accessible from US Highway 101. With just 387 residents, the city features gorgeous beaches, private homes, a pier, lighthouse, and Patrick's Point State Park.
A favorite among locals and visitors alike, Moonstone Beach is a popular spot for surfing as well as family picnics. Moonstone boasts breathtaking vistas without the typical crowds of some other beaches in California. Trinidad also features Trinidad State Beach, Old Home Beach, Clam Beach, and Little River Beach.
Trinidad Pier was just recently renovated and is once again open to the public. The previous pier, built in 1946, was becoming too structurally unsound and environmentally unfriendly for the city to sustain. The new pier is very sturdy, capable of withstanding both semi trucks during crabbing season and crowds of spectators during the Blessing of the Fleet.
Humboldt State Marine Laboratory
The HSU Marine Laboratory is home to the university's Fisheries Biology, Oceanography, and Biological Sciences programs. The lab has a circulating seawater system, lecture rooms, and labs for biological oceanography, chemical oceanography, geological oceanography, marine biological sciences, mariculture and fisheries instruction and student research. The university operates both diving and boating expeditions and also owns its own research vessel, the Coral Sea.
There are actually two lighthouses in Trinidad; one replica and another still operational. The replica is of the original that was built in 1871. Today, it serves as a memorial to those lost or buried at sea. The other lighthouse still operates as a navigational aid to sailors.
Patrick's Point State Park
The park's dense forests of spruce, hemlock, pine, fir and red alder stretch over an ocean headland with lovely wildflower-festooned meadows. The Park features a shoreline ranging from broad sandy beaches to sheer cliffs. It offers tide pools, search for agates and driftwood, whale watching, sea lions and brilliant sunsets. The park offers several miles of hiking trails, a recreated Yurok Village, a native plant garden, visitor center, three family campgrounds, 2 group camps, a camp for hikers and bicyclists, and 3 group picnic areas.
