Tennis – One of Trinidad’s charms is the tennis court right beside town hall. Call the city at 707-677-0223 for information and access to Lin Court.
Trinidad Head – The trail that loops around this iconic outcropping offers stunning views of town and coastline, and many benches along the way for wave- and whale-watching. The trail is relatively short, but it does have some elevation gain; allow about an hour to make the loop and explore its spurs. If you visit in winter, you might catch a glimpse of the Pewetole Island blowhole. Traveling counterclockwise from where the trial splits, the first set of benches are a great place to try to watch for it.
Trinidad Lighthouse – The red-roofed beauty that has come to symbolize Trinidad is a replica of the original lighthouse, which is still functioning on Trinidad Head as an updated, automated aid to navigation. It is open to the public on selected days, including Trinidad’s big Fish Fest celebration in June. Dating from the late 1800s, the lighthouse is currently managed by the Bureau of Land Management, working in cooperation with the town of Trinidad, the Trinidad Rancheria and the Yurok Tribe. The Lighthouse is open for special events and educational field trips. You can call Leisyka Parrott at (707) 825-2313 to make your special event or field trip request. Learn more on the BLM website.
