Trinidad, CA

Nestled on the Pacific Ocean’s edge, Trinidad is a charming coastal town in Humboldt County. Located 8 miles north of the Arcata-Eureka Airport and 15 miles north of the academic hub of Arcata, Trinidad is perched above its own natural harbor. As one of California’s smallest incorporated cities, with a population of 367 as of 2010, Trinidad is renowned for its breathtaking coastline featuring ten public beaches and offshore rocks.

These rocks form part of the California Coastal National Monument, making Trinidad a Gateway City to this natural wonder. The city is also home to three marine landmarks: the historic Trinidad Head Light, the Trinidad Memorial Lighthouse, and Humboldt State University’s Fred Telonicher Marine Laboratory.

Fishing activities linked to Trinidad Harbor play a crucial role in the region’s local tourism and commercial fishing sectors. Beyond its coastal treasures, Trinidad is deeply committed to preserving its Native American cultural and historic heritage, honoring its past as it looks to the future.
