Trinity County California
With a county area of 3,200 square miles and only a single stoplight to slow you down, there is plenty to keep you busy and always something new around the next turn in Trinity County, you will discover amazing landscapes ranging from granite peaks of the Trinity Alps to the wide-open spaces in parts of Southern Trinity

Serene Trinity Lake, the rushing Trinity River and the magnificent Trinity Alps are the main attractions in the area. Trinity Lake and Lewiston Lakes are popular for houseboating, camping, recreational boating and fishing, while Ruth Lake is also a popular destination in South County. The Trinity River is a unique destination for river rafting, kayaking, camping and fishing, along with the South Fork Trinity River, Van Duzen, and Mad Rivers in the southern part of the County. The Trinity Alps Wilderness area invites you to hike on the many trails, camp in pristine nature with granite peaks, or fish in cold, clear alpine lakes.

While the written history of Trinity County includes mostly mining and timber extraction events, Native American tribes thrived in this region for thousands of years prior to the arrival of Europeans, with an abundance of natural resources and various climates, tribes easily lived with the land. Gold mining activities brought about many of the small (mostly abandoned) towns scattered throughout the rugged terrain. The timber industry established many of the communities still existing in Trinity County, although there is only one lumber mill still operating in the largest community of Weaverville, which has a population of about 3,600 people. Weaverville saw the first traffic light installed in the County in 2021, the end of the "county with no traffic lights" claim to fame, but even so, this demonstrates just how rural and sparsely populated the county is.
