Trinity County is a large, rugged and mountainous, heavily forested county located in the northwestern portion of California, along the Trinity River and within the Salmon/Klamath Mountains. The county seat and largest town is Weaverville.
Trinity County has no traffic lights, freeways, parking meters, or incorporated cities and did not have a chain store or restaurant until 1999. Weaverville, the county seat, has the distinction of housing some of California's oldest buildings. The courthouse, built in 1856, is the second oldest in the state, and the Weaverville Drug Store has been filling prescriptions since 1852. The Joss House is a locally famous Taoist temple built in 1873.
Located in the lower reaches of the Cascade Range in California, midway between Redding in Shasta County and the Northern Redwood Coast, Trinity County encompasses approximately 3,200 square miles of alpine grandeur. It is roughly the size of Vermont, although if flattened out, the County would cover an area about the size of Texas. Tucked away among fir and pine forested slopes, wildflowers in season cloak remote dells with splashes of brilliant color.
Clear, tumbling waters from tarns and snow packs high up under towering peaks course down through rock walled canyons. The Trinity River Scenic Byway traverses the County alongside State Route 299.
Hundreds of miles of Forest Service roads, trails and old logging tracts open up spectacular forested mountains to hiking, horseback, mountain bike and motor touring. The whole area is a wildlife laboratory of diverse flora and fauna with four seasonal variations for you to watch, study, research, photograph and, in some cases, collect. The Trinity Alps Wilderness can be accessed through many gateways for wild-stream fishing, day hikes or extended treks. Pack trips on horseback are available with local licensed guides.
