Site of the ancient Tsurai Indian village is just below the Trinidad Memorial Lighthouse. Amazingly large driftwood. For a great walking loop, take the Lighthouse steps down to the beach, head south to Parker Creek Trail, take it back up and through town.
Access this peaceful movie-set gorgeous beach from the parking lot at Trinidad Bay Harbor down Edwards Street. The State Park entrance is from the north at Stagecoach Road. You'll often have it to yourself, and sometimes share it with surfers and a few dog lovers. Find Grandmother Rock, the wave-carved Arch, a natural bridge to Pewetole Island with its blow-hole, and great tide-pools full of colorful sea life. Parks.ca.gov
On Scenic Drive just south of town about a mile. Dramatic, protected cove - frequently populated with hearty sun bathers and sometimes a few spear-fishermen.
On Scenic Drive just south of Baker Beach. Spectacular scenery with seastacks, sea lions, seals and Luffenholz Creek. A trail takes visitors to a striking vantage point high above the beach where waves crash below.
On Scenic Drive a little further south from Luffenholz. Watch surfers and see the remains of an old lumber loading station.
Off of Scenic Drive down from Moonstone Grill. The Little River meets the sea beneath towering bluffs. Great beach for families. The crossing point for our Trinidad to Clam Beach Run.
Hike down a gentle slope to a beautiful sheltered beach. Another short hike above the beach reaches Elk’s Head with thundering waves and wind, and breath-taking, rugged scenery. Nature at it's wildest - on display for you.
Parks.ca.gov - "The Park's dense forests of spruce, hemlock, pine, fir and red alder stretch over an ocean headland with lovely wildflower-festooned meadows." Look for agates on Agate Beach, watch whales, sea lions, and visit Sumeg Village - a reconstruction of an Yurok Indian village. Campsites for individuals, families, and groups are available at the Park.
Big Lagoon is separated from the Pacific Ocean by a sand spit. The lagoon is calm and great for kayaking, canoeing and row boating. Campsites are available at the County Park. More information at the HCCVB Web site ( Redwoods.info )
Nps.gov - A little further north and you'll be at the Visitor's Center. Tall Trees and Ladybird Johnson Groves along with Minor's Ridge are popular destinations. The site recommends a drive "... to the Klamath River Overlook on Requa Road to view where this wild and scenic river meets the sea." Couldn't agree more. It's a beautiful view.
Parks.ca.gov - "Set aside in the early 1920’s by the forethought of the people of California and the generosity of the Save-the-Redwoods League, Prairie Creek is a sanctuary of old growth coast redwood." Prairie Creek has many trails, a charming Visitor's Center, camping, Fern Canyon, Gold Bluffs Beach, and Elk! A World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Reserve.
Parks.ca.gov - "Two heads are better than one. That’s one way of looking at Trinidad State Beach and the two dramatic heads - Elk and Trinidad. Like a pair of protective book-ends, they overlook picturesque coves and rugged off-shore rocks. Trinidad Head, a commanding 362-foot high promontory, anchors the town of Trinidad and forms its picturesque bay. Sitka spruce-spiked Elk Head, located just north of Trinidad, is more of a secret, its scenic trails used mainly by locals."
Follow the trail up the Head and watch the grey whales on their migration. The Lighthouse can be glimpsed from viewing platform on top. Trinidad Area trails take hikers to many ocean overlooks, through redwood forests and along wildly natural beaches. Trail maps are available at locations throughout Trinidad.
A boat launch is available for ocean fishing boats. A free launch area is located near the pier on the beach for kayaks and small boats. A boat launch is also available for non-power boats at Big Lagoon.
Grey whales, seals and sea lions, and river otters abound along the beaches. Giant Roosevelt Elk can be viewed roaming freely near Orick. Over 400 species of birds including Terns, osprey, puffins, and blue herons make Trinidad a bird watchers paradise. Tidepools abound at most beaches.
Sites are available at Patrick’s Point State Park. Also find Trinidad Area RV Parks at the Chamber of Commerce Web site - DiscoverTrinidadCA.com.
Sites can be found in Big Lagoon County Park, Clam Beach County Park, and Patrick’s Point State Park.
