This pier is the northernmost oceanfront pier in the state and sits in one of the state’s most beautiful settings. Just a short drive north of Eureka, the pier gets steady if not necessarily heavy use by pier anglers. Although fishing from the pier is generally only fair, few seem to mind. For most people, especially visitors from southern California, the pier fishing itself is secondary. More visited are the nearby redwood groves and the spectacular coastline. Most anglers come for the seasonal salmon and bottom fishing (including some big lings up by Redding Rock) which is available from skiffs and party boats. However, excellent fishing is also available in the nearby surf for redtail perch and smelt, while coastal lagoons offer a relaxed environment with plentiful trout.

Wake to the bell gently chiming on the bay’s buoy, faint calls of seagulls laughing, and the distant barking of sea lions. As sunlight rises over the tree crests on the surrounding hills, the sea stacks are illuminated through enchanted mists and salty spray. If you come during winter months, you’ll witness some of the most powerful ocean swells in California. Watch a variety of fisherman’s boats come in and out of California’s last natural harbor in commercial use, all from Harbor Moon.
Sip your favorite beverage during sunset as you relax on the stone sitting wall. A beautiful native plant garden grows before you, a kaleidoscope of hues which complement those of the changing evening sky. Once you decide to retreat to the Master Bedroom through the French doors, be sure to look behind you to the south and relish in the view you’ll be able to enjoy from your king-size bed. Open the blinds to reveal an epic view of Houda Point, Cape Mendocino, and wild Pacific Ocean from the comfort of your luxurious new abode.
The Redwood National and State Parks (RNSP) are a complex of several state and national parks located in the United States, along the coast of northern California. Comprising Redwood National Park (established 1968) and California's Del Norte Coast, Jedediah Smith, and Prairie Creek Redwoods State Parks (dating from the 1920s), the combined RNSP contain 139,000 acres (560 km2), and feature old-growth temperate rainforests. Located entirely within Del Norte and Humboldt Counties, the four parks, together, protect 45% of all remaining coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) old-growth forests, totaling at least 38,982 acres (157.75 km2). These trees are the tallest and one of the most massive tree species on Earth. In addition to the redwood forests, the parks preserve other indigenous flora, fauna, grassland prairie, cultural resources, portions of rivers and other streams, and 37 miles (60 km) of pristine coastline.
In 1850, old-growth redwood forest covered more than 2,000,000 acres (8,100 km2) of the California coast. The northern portion of that area, originally inhabited by Native Americans, attracted many lumbermen and others turned gold miners when a minor gold rush brought them to the region. Failing in efforts to strike it rich in gold, these men turned toward harvesting the giant trees for booming development in San Francisco and other places on the West Coast. After many decades of unrestricted clear-cut logging, serious efforts toward conservation began. By the 1920s the work of the Save-the-Redwoods League, founded in 1918 to preserve remaining old-growth redwoods, resulted in the establishment of Prairie Creek, Del Norte Coast, and Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Parks among others. Redwood National Park was created in 1968, by which time nearly 90% of the original redwood trees had been logged. The National Park Service (NPS) and the California Department of Parks and Recreation (CDPR) administratively combined Redwood National Park with the three abutting Redwood State Parks in 1994 for the purpose of cooperative forest management and stabilization of forests and watersheds as a single unit.
The ecosystem of the RNSP preserves a number of threatened animal species such as the tidewater goby, Chinook salmon, northern spotted owl, and Steller's sea lion. In recognition of the rare ecosystem and cultural history found in the parks, the United Nations designated them a World Heritage Site on September 5, 1980 and part of the California Coast Ranges International Biosphere Reserve on June 30, 1983.
Trinidad State Beach is accessed via a short hike through the woods, across open bluffs, and past seasonal wildflowers. There is a natural arch near the north end of the beach. Low tide is the best time to visit.
The beach offers restrooms, picnic area, parking area, trails, an open grassy area and spruce forest. The 1/2 mile trail to the beach drops 120 feet. On the high bluffs above the beach there is an open meadow with scattered stands of alders. Visitor facilities include restrooms, parking, and a small picnic area with, tables and stoves.
Trinidad State Beach spans a wide space between Elk Head on the north end and Trinidad Head on the south end in the Humboldt County town of Trinidad. Pewetole Island, a huge rock close to the beach in this west-facing bay, divides Trinidad State Beach into two coves.
The main beach in the south cove has easy access from parking lots on the west end of town (at the end of Lighthouse Road and also at a signed entrance off Stagecoach Road).
The north beach is called College Cove and it has a separate parking lot and trailhead farther down Stagecoach Road. Be careful while exploring the remote areas of Trinidad State Beach as the rising tide can trap you against the cliffs. Trinidad Head offers a great hiking opportunity to the summit, a lighthouse, and many excellent viewpoints.
Old Home Beach, also known as Indian Beach, is a narrow beach on Trinidad Bay in the small town of Trinidad. It has been renamed, probably out of political correctness, but some signage still has the old name. This protected beach offers great views of Trinidad Head and the bay with many picturesque rocks sticking up. There are two ways to get to Old Home Beach from the bluff above it. The first is down a trail with stairs behind the Trinidad Lighthouse Memorial at the corner of Trinity and Edwards Streets. The second beach access is down a trail at the end of Parker Street called the Parker Creek Trail (park on grass at top of the hill and walk down Parker St.). The view from the lighthouse memorial is stunning.
Thirty miles north of Eureka, Patrick’s Point State Park sits on a lushly forested promontory beside the Pacific Ocean.
The one-square-mile park is densely packed with potential adventures. On a short walk around the perimeter of the park, you can hunt for agates, explore tidepools, and walk through a jungle of shrubs and trees as you peer out at seals, sea lions, and migrating whales. In the park’s interior, you’ll find a visitor center, a native plant garden, and a reconstructed Yurok plank-house village. You can picnic or wake up to birdsong at one of three campgrounds. In summer, you can witness a traditional ceremony at Sumêg Village or take a hike led by a docent or professional naturalist.
PATRICKS POINT STATE PARK is a RV Park in or near the town of Trinidad. It is a slightly larger than medium park with a listed 124 spots to park your recreational vehicle. This park has pull thru sites for your convenience. If your coach is 36 feet or longer you might want to call and see if you are too long. Make sure your generator is fueled up for this park. Electric looks to not be provided. The largest electric service is probably 30 amp. At a minimum, make sure you have some drinking water as water hookups are not provided. Probably due to the nature of the park and its location, sewer connections are not available. The park has a more authentic camping experience than some RV parks due to the lack of 802.11 WiFi. We have no idea of the over the air TV, but we do know that no Cable TV is provided. Animals are welcome here. Some parts of this RV Park are more rustic than others with tent camping being accepted. Some shade trees do exist, which also make the park more scenic and attractive. Do not just drive by Trinidad – instead stop and rest at PATRICKS POINT STATE PARK.
