Tucked down below Trinidad in a sheltered cove is Trinidad State Beach. It is just a short hike through stands of alder trees, along open bluffs with impressive views, and through meadows full of wildflowers. Stand on the shore and gaze out upon the panorama of rugged rock formations, often shrouded in mist, jutting out of the Pacific Ocean. You might spot sea lions sunbathing on the rocks, or at the right time of year, migrating whales. The one-mile expanse of clean sand extends to the high cliffs of Trinidad Head. Tidepool viewing is a safe and fun source of entertainment for the young ones. Small caves, a natural arch and rock promontories entice the adventurous explorer. A low-tide walk out to the rocks reveals a strange-looking, flowering plant called the sea fig. There are miles of nearby hiking and horseback riding trails. If you enjoy fishing, this area is well known for its bountiful waters. This beautiful spot may become one of your favorites. When you catch something, head over to the picnic area and cook it up on the outdoor grills. The beach is for day-use only, and is open from sunrise to sunset. Trinidad State Beach is located 19 miles north of Eureka off Hwy 101 in Trinidad
