Trinidad is a quiet fishing village sitting on the northern coast of California. The main part of town sits on a rocky bluff overlooking the ocean. The area is surrounded by redwood and spruce forests. Off the coast are the Trinidad rocks which are home to a diverse group of seabirds in all of California. The Trinidad State Beach has some great hiking trails, such as the Trinidad Head. From this trail, you can see amazing ocean views and many marine mammals like the occasional grey whale or sea lion. Visit the harbor and charter a boat to get in some great fishing, or take the kids to the Telonicher Marine Lab. Here they can enjoy hands-on exhibits of the local sea life. The sleepy village also has plenty of restaurants, shops, and art galleries for you to visit. When planning your trip to Humboldt County be sure to check out the best Vrbos in Trinidad, California, for a more comfortable stay.
