Discover the Jewel of Humboldt County

The Area

Experience the Magic of California’s North Coast!

The North Coast of California (also called the Redwood Empire or the Redwood Coast) is the region in Northern California that lies on the Pacific coast between San Francisco Bay and the Oregon border.

The Town of Trinidad

Trinidad is a seaside village in Humboldt County, located on the Pacific Ocean 8 miles north of the Arcata-Eureka Airport (ACV) and 15 miles north of the college town of Arcata. The Trinidad area is one of the most spectacular, pristine segments of the California coast, and has been established as a California Coastal National Monument Gateway – offering the best shore-based opportunities to discover and view offshore rocks and islands and their inhabitants. The coastal Trinidad rocks support one of the most diverse seabird colonies in California with twelve species and over 100,000 breeding individuals.
