umboldt County is a haven for travelers and residents alike. Featuring 160 miles of unspoiled coastline, hundreds of thousands of acres of coastal redwood trees, wild rivers, bustling seaports, quaint farming communities and fascinating historical areas. Travelers will find exceptional accommodations, fine restaurants, wonderful shops and numerous campgrounds in Humboldt County. Explore the area’s rocky coastlines, warm inland communities and major rivers while taking advantage of the local businesses. The county is situated on the Northern California coast, 90 miles south of the Oregon border, and its largest towns are adjacent to Hwy 101. Eureka, the county seat, is approximately 283 miles north of San Francisco and 335 miles south of Portland, Oregon. In southern Humboldt, Hwy 101 is lined by some of the first redwoods spotted by northbound travelers. Richard-

Join Us for Dinner!

son Grove State Park is a magnificent 2,000 acres of redwoods, located nine miles south of the town of Garberville. The state acquired the area in the early 1920s, making it one of the oldest state parks in California. A jaunt down smaller side roads that exit Hwy 101 will lead travelers to the King Range National Conservation Area and Humboldt County’s Lost Coast. This adventure leads to hamlets such as Hidden Valley and Whitethorn, and ultimately ends at the town of Shelter Cove. Further north on Hwy 101 after leaving the towns of Garberville and Redway is the Avenue of the Giants, a 31-mile stretch of twolane road, dotted with small unique towns, that winds through stands of huge redwoods along the Eel River. Humboldt Redwoods State Park is located along the Avenue and covers more than 52,000 acres. After leaving the Avenue of the Giants, the traveler will once again be on Hwy 101 and will pass the town of Scotia, located on a striking wooded hillside overlooking a giant bend in the Eel River. Further north is the sunny inland town of Fortuna, known as the jewel of the Eel River Valley. Friendly Fortuna has developed tremendous accommodations for tourists in recent years, including several hotels along the Eel River, and an attractive community center. East of Fortuna, along State Hwy 36, is Grizzly Creek State Park, a favorite for hiking, camping and summer sun. The Victorian Village of Ferndale is just northwest of Fortuna and 16 miles south of Eureka. The entire town has been named a State Historical Landmark because of its strong preservation policies of commercial buildings and residences. Eureka contains more fine examples of Victorian architecture, particularly in the continued on page 8

Over the North Coast

Welcome to Humboldt County continued from page 6 Old Town section along the city’s waterfront. Old Town is home to the extravagantly ornate Carson Mansion, one of the most photographed buildings in California. Eureka’s population of nearly 28,000 makes it the largest coastal city between San Francisco and the Oregon border. Eureka has a multitude of excellent restaurants, cafes, specialty shops and lodging facilities. The city is also known for its large and active arts community. In fact, Humboldt County has the distinction of having more artists per capita than any other of the state’s 58 counties. Eureka is a busy seaport with a large fishing fleet. A variety of activities can be found in and around the waters of Humboldt Bay, including kayaking, fishing and even spotting a harbor seal or two. There are harbor tours aboard the M.V. Madaket, and the Woodley Island Marina is a great spot to enjoy a panoramic view of the waterfront. Seven miles north of Eureka is Arcata, home to Humboldt State University. Arcata is also known for its unique marsh and wildlife area that serves as a natural sewage treatment filtration system. East of Arcata, along Hwy 299 and Hwy 96 are sunny Willow Creek and Hoopa, known for recreation along the Trinity and Klamath Rivers and their tributaries. Back along Hwy 101 the town of McKinleyville serves as the home of the ArcataEureka Airport, the county’s only commercial airport. In northern Humboldt County are the coastal jewels of Trinidad, which overlooks a beautiful sheltered harbor, and Orick, the gateway to Redwood National Park.

Humboldt County’s Artisan Wines W elcome to the wineries and vineyards of Humboldt County— a community of artisan wineries and vineyards whose passion and enthusiasm for wine is matched by the quality of their products. Humboldt is a county of diverse growing and wine making areas, from the vineyards and wineries scattered amongst the redwoods of Southern Humboldt to those winding river and forest canyons of the East county, and the wineries in the Northern County that feel the cool breezes of the Pacific Ocean. These diverse regions produce a variety of grapes ideally matched to the micro-climates and soils of these areas. Most of the vintners are happy to welcome guests and are only open by appointment, but a few are open daily.

Visit the One Log House

Domicile, habitat, home — it’s where your heart is or isn’t. In the case of the One-Log House, the heartwood of a 2,100 year old redwood was hewn out by hand to make a complete home with all the amenities. Although the timeline for this tree starts around the same time as the birth of Christ, its modern timeline starts with its cutting in 1946. The log for the One-Log House was cut down by Art Schmock and his son. At that time, the tree was on property owned by Georgia Pacific Co. of Eureka. This particular log was cut, rolled onto a trailer, and metal straps were welded around it for support. It was then transported to Eureka where it was hollowed out by hand, using tools such as drills, chisels, wedges and foot adzes. The log itself is 32 feet long, 10-11 feet in diameter and has an interior height slightly over 6 feet. The living area is divided into kitchen, bathroom, living and bedroom areas. In the 8-month process of hollowing the log, enough wood chips were produced to build a traditional five-bedroom home. The One-Log House has traveled the western United States and stayed at various places in Humboldt and Mendocino courtesy of One-Log House Counties for the past 53 years. For more than 11 years now, One Log House Espresso & Gifts sits near Richardson Grove State Park on Hwy 101, serving food and organic, locally roasted espresso. Visitors can go inside the house itself, and also enjoy the gift shop with espresso bar, which includes shakes, smoothies, frappes and other refreshments. In addition to expertise in espresso, a clean and polished environment and a helpful staff, there is also an on-site burl factory where many beautiful, unique redwood gifts are created and then sold in the gift shop. Outdoor picnicking areas are available as well as air conditioned seating inside, fun antique logging photos to look at, a souvenir penny smashing machine, and clean handicap accessibility for all customers. Open daily year round. Located on Hwy 101, nine miles south of Garberville by Richardson Grove. For more information, call (707) 247-3717.

See the Grandfather Tree

Explore Richardson Grove State Park

Stop to see the amazing Grandfather Tree as you meander the Redwood Highway. Located adjoining Richardson Grove State Park and Cook’s Valley on N. Hwy 101 near Piercy, this massive coastal redwood seems to outshine all the others on the tour. Estimated to be over 1800-years old, this amazing double-trunked redwood is famous for its large limbs, full foliage and picturesque qualities, standing on its own in an area otherwise crowded with trees. It is over 265 ft. tall and has one of the largest trunks on the Redwood Highway. It is 24 in. in diameter and 55 ft. in circumference and has been a favorite photographic subject of visitors for generations. Keith and Trudy Bowman have hosted photo by Gregg Gardiner visitors to the Grandfather Tree for over 30 years. The gift shop is filled with redwood items and chainsaw-carved sculptures, benches and furniture at great prices. If you are there at the right time, you might even see the chainsaw carver working away at his craft. You can stop, watch and ask questions. There is a large picnic area surrounded by another beautiful redwood grove and the gift shop offers premium ice cream, drinks and snacks. It also has a large t-shirt section. The Grandfather Tree is located at 779 N. Hwy 101 in Piercy and is generally open year-round. For more information, call (707) 247-3413.

Heading north on Hwy 101 from Mendocino into Humboldt County, you will encounter significant old-growth redwood forests at Richardson Grove State Park. Established in 1922 and named after California’s 25th governor, Friend W. Richardson, this beautiful park is not only a popular family camping spot, but also a wonderful place to learn about the coastal redwood forests.

he Southern Humboldt town of Garberville, founded as South Fork in the late 1800s, is a bustling community that belies its size. With a vibrant array of shops, motels, services and restaurants, it caters to travelers along Hwy 101, as well as to thousands of rural residents in the surrounding countryside. Garberville and its sister city Redway are also the gateways to a myriad of recreational opportunities, from the swimming holes on the Eel River, to the Yolla-Bolly Middle Eel Wilderness Area, to Shelter Cove and the Lost Coast. And just minutes away is the southern entrance to the 31-mile-long Avenue of the Giants that winds through stands of ancient redwoods a few miles north of Redway. Like many other Southern Humboldt towns, Garberville got its name from one of the early residents of the area. Jacob Garber served as the town’s postmaster, and the area officially became Garberville in March 1874. Back then, a large portion of the presentday town was a prune orchard, Garberville’s first industry. When a road connecting San Francisco to Eureka was established in the 1920s, Garberville became a favorite stop for motorists. Today, Garberville is known for its friendly residents, and it is both a stop-off point and destination for travelers. The town is well placed on Hwy 101, 200 miles north of San Francisco and 52 miles south of Eureka. Garberville’s amenities include an airport and hospital, motels, restaurants and a huge number of RV, private and public campsite spaces. Anglers have long sought out the area’s local waterways. However, due to dwindling stocks, there are sometimes restrictions on the annual catch for species such as salmon. It’s a good idea to check with local sporting goods stores for current regulations before dipping a line. During the summer, the nearby river offers sunbathing, swimming, boat rentals, camping and picnicking. Another delightful Garberville destination is Southern Humboldt Community Park, just south of town on Sprowel Creek Rd. The community has raised more than $600,000 to save the prime agricultural property from development. The 475-acre parcel includes 200 acres of flatlands, a unique find within California’s Coastal Range. The community continues to raise money to preserve the park’s natural resources. For more information, call (707) 923-2287. www.sohumpark.org The quaint and vibrant communities of Garberville and Redway are famous for several major yearly events that are celebrated in the area. The towns, which are only a few miles apart, stage musical and theatrical events that are known far beyond the borders of Humboldt County. The Summer Arts and Music Festival traditionally takes place around the same time as the Redwood Run. The arts festival features food and craft booths, children’s entertainment, music, dancing, boating and swimming. A winter version of the festival is held in December, and is a great place to find a unique Christmas gift.

orth of Garberville is Redway, one of the North Coast’s most unique towns. For such a tiny place, with a population around 1,200 and all of about 1.3 sq. mi. of it, Redway offers a great diversion on the way up the Avenue of the Giants or Hwy 101. Also accessible by the Garberville Airport, Redway has accommodations, great food and charming shops, along with all the necessities one might find in a much larger town. Founded by Oscar and Charles Burris in 1923, this sweet spot in the redwoods is nestled in a crook of the South Fork of the Eel River and is centered around its main drag, Redwood Dr. It is home to the famous Mateel Community Center which offers renowned cultural events in the area such as Reggae on the River, Summer Arts and Music Festival, the Humboldt Hoedown and Winter Arts Faire. It is also known for KMUD Radio, a unique voice in the redwoods with a very eclectic approach to music. It features one of the oldest, most popular resorts in the area, Dean Creek Resort, which offers motel, RV and camping accommodations along with tons of outdoor entertainment – pool, spa, sauna, mini-golf, volleyball, shuffleboard, horseshoes, an amphitheater and even a game arcade. Redway is also a local hotspot for great food. There is a steakhouse to go for dinner, and a pizza and deli to go to for lunch. The Mateel Café offers gourmet fine dining with a great selection of vegetarian delights. They also offer pizza, sandwiches, and specialty salads. If you need your caffeine fix there is a nice coffee shop in town.

Shelter Cove & The Lost Coast

photo by Gregg Gardiner

I

n the 1920s, when they built the Coast Highway in northern California, engineers decided a stretch of coast from northern Mendocino County through the King Range in Humboldt County was too rugged for a road. Thus, this expanse of magnificent coastline was soon isolated and became known as the “Lost Coast.” The small community of Shelter Cove, on the coast in far southern Humboldt County just below the King Range, lies at the core of the Lost Coast. Being cut off from the rest of California has helped Shelter Cove become what it is today—a peaceful seaside resort with peerless scenery that is nirvana for outdoor enthusiasts. A relatively flat point set amidst a long stretch of sheer ocean cliffs, Shelter Cove gets its name from a gulf formed by Point Delgada to the south. The drive — a winding 23 miles from Redway — is well worth it for those who like to fish, crab, dive for abalone or watch for whales. Photographers, hikers and nature lovers have plenty to do as well. The thick redwood forests surrounding the village are home to

bald eagles, Roosevelt elk, black tail deer... and if you believe the legend, Bigfoot. The rocky shoreline makes Shelter Cove a refuge for seals and sea lions, and boasts some of the world’s richest tide pools. There are picnic areas that offer access to the beach or the rocks below the bluffs. Black Sands Beach to the north is deserted and picturesque, with stunning views of the King Range. There are numerous campgrounds in the wilderness near Shelter Cove, plus a major trailhead that leads into the King Range. Hikers who want to trek the 25mile long Lost Coast Trail can start their journey here. For much of the Lost Coast, the mountains dive directly into the sea, a geographic barrier to development that has left much of this region in its original rugged and wild state. Shelter Cove features amenities for the traveler such as a campground and RV park, several inns and motels, restaurants, a cocktail lounge, a coffeehouse, tea house, markets and a daylight air landing strip.

Lost Coast Range

The King Range National Conservation Area is unlike any other place in the continental United States. Here, in this 35-mile long, 68,000-acre stretch of coastal wilderness, the mountains rise directly out of the sea. King Peak tops out at 4,088 feet, and is only three miles from the ocean. The Conservation Area extends between the Mattole River in Humboldt County to the northern border of the Sinkyone Wilderness State Park in Mendocino County. Because of its remoteness and relative inaccessibility—only a few back roads lead into the range—this Douglas-fir-clad wilderness attracts hikers, backpackers, campers, equestrians, mushroom collectors, surfers, anglers, beachcombers and abalone divers. Seals, sea lions and a multitude of sea birds inhabit the rocky shoreline; tide pools and kelp beds are their homes. California gray whales pass close to shore during the spring northern migration. Streams that pour down from the mountains are spawning waters for salmon and trout. A small herd of Roosevelt elk roams the area, and some 300 species of migratory birds have been found in the King Range, including the northern spotted owl, bald eagle and Cooper’s hawk. Black bear and mountain lions also prowl these mountains and the shoreline. courtesy of Bureau of Land Management The King Range lies at the base of a tectonic www.blm.gov anomaly known as the Mendocino Junction, where three of the earth’s plates come together. Thus, the mountains here are rising faster than just about anywhere else in the world. The dominant rock is greywacke, a dark grey sandstone that crumbles easily. Hence, the beaches are black sand. Also found here are archeological remnants of the original human inhabitants, the Mattole and Sinkyone tribes. Village sites and other cultural remains can still be found here. The King Range became the nation’s first National Conservation Area in October 1970, and is managed by the federal Bureau of Land Management. The BLM maintains miles of trails in the Conservation Area, most of which intersect the legendary Lost Coast Trail. The trail runs 25 miles along the shore at the base of the mountains from the mouth of the Mattole to Shelter Cove. There is a wide selection of automobile and backcountry campgrounds in and around the Conservation Area. Accessing the King Range can be an adventure in itself. Hikers can take the Lost Coast Trail north out of the village of Shelter Cove. Unpaved back roads, most suitable for 4-wheel drive vehicles with high ground clearance, intersect Shelter Cove Rd. on the south, and Wilder Ridge Rd. on the east. On the north end of the range, access is near the mouth of the Mattole River on Lighthouse Rd., off Mattole Rd. For information on trails, camping, day hikes, backpacking, horseback riding, fishing, abalone diving and hunting, call the BLM’s King Range project office in Whitethorn, (707) 986-5400, or in Arcata, (707) 825-2300. www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/fo/arcata/kingrange/index.html Please say you saw it in 101 Things To Do ®

Shelter Cove & The Lost Coast View Abundant Wildlife at Shelter Cove

The King Range National Conservation Area, established in 1970 as the nation’s first National Conservation Area, is an extremely special place for nature- and wildlife-lovers. One of the largest natural habitats in America, the area encompasses 68,000 acres, with many different habitats in the area surrounding Shelter Cove. Roosevelt elk, deer, whales, skunks, raccoons, egrets, marbled murrelets and bald eagles are among the 300 species inhabiting the area. Mountain lions, black bears, coyotes and rattlesnakes also make their home here. Harbor Seals & Sea Lions Pinnipeds are large carnivorous marine mammals. Two species are common sights at Shelter Cove: harbor seals and California sea lions. These playful creatures love to sun themselves on the rocks below the bluffs at Shelter Cove during low tide. The largest congregation is usually found at Point Delgado, but seals can easily be spotted up the coast to Seal Rock. To find seals and sea lions, just listen for their distinctive bark. You can hear them from almost anywhere in Shelter Cove. At high tide, they dive into the water in search of fish and shellfish. Whale Watching Each year the Humboldt County coast witnesses gray whales making a mammoth 12,400 mile round-trip migration between their southern breeding ground off Baja California, Mexico and the northern feeding grounds off Alaska and the Beaufort Sea. It is a lengthy migration south from Alaska in the early winter, when pods of gray whales, led by the pregnant females head to the birthing and breeding grounds in the warm, shallow lagoons along the Mexican and Baja California coasts. In early April through May the return migration north to Alaska is in full swing, with females and their calves swimming close to shore, the calves nearest to the coast, sometimes just beyond the surf line, as they seek to evade predators. The landmass of Shelter Cove that juts into the sea, combined with the height of the bluffs overlooking the ocean, provides some of the best land-based whale-watching opportunities anywhere on the Pacific Coast. Migrating gray whales come so close to shore here, binoculars are not needed. They often come right up to the rocks. At times they can be seen from campsites. It’s not uncommon to see a newborn calf swimming and spouting next to its mother. The waters off Shelter Cove offer a good supply of food for gray whales, and they might linger for a week or two here. While gray whales are the main attraction at Shelter Cove, occasionally humped-back or blue whales are spotted as well. Birdwatching Visitors wishing to record birds while visiting the King Range National photo by Bob Wick, www.blm.gov Conservation Area are encouraged to participate in gathering information to help refine knowledge of bird life in this beautiful area. The area boasts about 300 different species of birds. Please send information to Bureau of Land Management, King Range Project Office, 768 Shelter Cove Rd., Whitethorn CA 95589.

he Pacific Coast’s rocky reefs feature some of the world’s most abundant tidal zone life. The secret to this abundance are the winds and currents that drive surface water away from the shore, causing nutrient-rich cold water to rise from below. These nutrients cause plant life to flourish, providing a bounty of food for the incredible array of organisms that inhabit the tide pools, formed when receding tides trap seawater in basins among the rock. The tide pools in the rocky reef below the bluffs at Shelter Cove are no exception. Exploring these pools and identifying the fascinating creatures that inhabit them is an adventure. The best time for tide-pooling is during spring tides, which happen every two weeks when there is a full moon or a new moon. But you can also explore tide pools between the full and new moons, thanks to neap tides, the lowest tides of the month. Plan your trip to the tide pools for an hour or two before or after the lowest minus tides, which occur twice daily. Tide tables can be purchased at local stores that stock fishing supplies. Tide pools are generally divided into four zones: splash, high, mid and low.

rounding algae). Look for sea sacks and anemones just above the pools, and just below look for mussels, goose barnacles and sea palms. In the low zones, uncovered only during the lowest tides of the month, you can find abalone, sponges, rock crabs, urchins and maybe even an octopus. Cautions: Wear long pants and shoes with soles that grip on wet rocks. Don’t let the incoming tide flood your return route to shore. Don’t turn your back to the ocean. Watch the waves, and don’t let a big one sneak up and sweep you off the rocks. Collect only memories—leave everything where you find it. Even the smallest shells will be used by young hermit crabs. Don’t collect tide-pool organisms—many of them are becoming hard to find. Respect their habitat and don’t carelessly flip over rocks in the pools. Tide pool animals are protected by strictly enforced laws to conserve this unique natural resource.

See the Cape Mendocino Lighthouse at Shelter Cove

In 1999, a large helicopter lifted the lantern off the historic, but badly deteriorated, Cape Mendocino Lighthouse and flew it 35 miles south, to the resort village of Shelter Cove. The rest of the lighthouse, disassembled at the site, soon followed by truck. Within a year the Cape Mendocino Lighthouse Preservation Society had restored, painted and fitted new glass into this 139-year-old sailor’s beacon. It now sits at Mal Coombs Park at the tip of Point Delgada. The Cape Mendocino Lighthouse has a rich history as a signal of warning in some of the Pacific Coast’s most treacherous waters. Cape Mendocino is California’s westernmost point. The first ship carrying supplies to build the lighthouse struck a rock on its journey and ran aground in 1867. When a steamer finally landed safely at the cape’s headland, the parts of the lighthouse were hauled up steep cliffs to a base 422 feet above the ocean. When the 43-foot tall tower was completed in 1868, it became one of the highest lighthouses in the nation. The last piece, the delicate Fresnel lens, was steamed to Eureka then transported by horse and wagon to the point. The lighthouse began flashing its white signal once every 30 seconds on Dec. 1, 1868. The lighthouse was so remote it had to be serviced by sea in the early years. One lighthouse inspector drowned in 1881 trying to reach it. During more than 80 years of service, violent storms and frequent earthquakes took their toll on the lighthouse. The Coast Guard decommissioned it in 1951, and by the late 1990s the lighthouse was ready to crumble into the sea. Today, the lighthouse is open for tours, when docents are available, from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Memorial Day through Labor Day. www.lighthousefriends.com/light.asp?ID=25

Fish the Waters of the Pacific Ocean

Shelter Cove is one of California’s premiere ocean fishing destinations. Fishermen come for the salmon, which are found close to the shore here May through August. Anglers can also catch an abundance of ling cod, rock cod, halibut, albacore and surf perch, and can fish from shore for perch or rock fish. Fishermen can also launch a boat from the cove, which Point Delgada protects from the northwesterly winds. Visitors can buy fishing licenses at Shelter Cove stores or charter a boat from a sport fishing business for a guided angling adventure. On calm days, abalone diving is also an option. A great way to make sure that you have the perfect fishing experience is to let one

Hike to the Punta Gorda Lighthouse

If there was an Alcatraz of lighthouses, the Punta Gorda light station was reputed to be it. Isolated and as lonely as a frontier settlement, it was the perfect place to station ill-behaved employees. Winter months were spent virtually in solitary confinement. Flooded streams and harsh, windy conditions kept the site cut off from civilization. Even during the pleasant summer months, the lighthouse keeper had to travel 11 miles on horseback to shop for fresh supplies in the small town of Petrolia. The site was originally sanctioned as a fog station in 1888. It wasn’t until 1912 that the Punta Gorda (Spanish for “substantial point”) lighthouse was approved by Congress, and only then after 10 ships and countless seamen met their fate near this point. The flashing light in the small 27-foot-tall tower was in service for 39 years until 1951 when the Coast Guard decided the remote site was too expensive to maintain. The buildings were boarded up and a lighted buoy was placed offshore. Now controlled by the Bureau of Land Management, the only structures remaining are the concrete lighthouse and the oil house, both of which were placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. The lighthouse site is a three-mile, strenuous hike along the Lost Coast Trail, which begins at the Mattole Beach campground. The trail offers beautiful black-sand beaches, dunes and tidepools. A large portion of the hike is through fine, loose sand, and hiking beneath the cliffs can be dangerous at high tide. Tide information is usually posted at the trailhead. To reach the site from Hwy 101, take the Honeydew/Dyerville exit in the Humboldt Redwoods State Park. Travel west to Mattole Rd. in Honeydew to Lighthouse Rd., almost an hour and a half trip. Travel five miles to Mattole Campground. For information, call the Bureau of Land Management at (707) 986-5400. www.lighthousefriends.com/light.asp?ID=63

Avenue of the Giants

T

he Avenue of the Giants offers more than the majesty of towering redwoods. This 31-mile route also passes through several small hamlets that give a glimpse into the history of Humboldt County. The towns along the Avenue, once closely tied to the timber industry, now rely more on the tourists who come to see the redwoods, swim in the Eel River and visit Humboldt Redwoods photo by Steve Hammons State Park. At the south end of the Avenue of the Giants is Phillipsville, which has restaurants, a grocery store, a motel, numerous visitor attractions and several river access points. Further north is the town of Miranda, surrounded by redwoods and boasting a growing community of artists. Here you’ll find lodging and dining. There is also a gift shop where you’ll find local treasures, and the Miranda Jail for a humorous photo opportunity. Myers Flat, north of Miranda and in the heart of the redwoods has a country inn, fine dining restaurant and wine tasting room, plus a family oriented campground. The town of Weott is not located at its original site. The town used to straddle the Avenue of the Giants until 1964, when a devastating flood washed it and several other local towns away. Look for the tall post marking the depth of the floodwater. Most travelers to Weott come to see the Visitor’s Center at Humboldt Redwoods State Park, just south of town. The town of Redcrest began in 1918 as a logging town. Its location on high ground protected Redcrest from the devastating floods that wiped out the lower-lying towns.

Stop by a Classic Old Roadhouse

Once thought to be a dying institution, the all-American roadhouse still survives in northern California. Roadhouses are small, old inns, usually with a dance hall, a tavern with extremely cold beer and some form of fresh, pub-style food—usually found on an old highway or rural route, far beyond any city limits or bright lights. While the Eel River flooded out most of the little towns along the Avenue of the Giants in 1964, the water only rose to the back door of the Riverwood Inn at 2828 Avenue of the Giants in Phillipsville, sparing it to become a cult classic. The original structure, thought to have been built in the 1930s, has rocked as a roadhouse ever since. The Riverwood Inn is the last remaining roadhouse among scores that populated old Hwy 101. It is certainly the most famous. The Inn’s entertainment is legendary; John Lee Hooker, Norton Buffalo, the Knockouts and Guitar Shorty have all played here to the delight of the road-weary. The Riverwood Inn is open year-round, with a winter fire to greet travelers in the not-so-off season. It offers snug rooms, a full bar complete with vintage red velvet wallpaper, fresh authentic Mexican food made with local organic produce, and some of the best live music north of San Francisco. For reservations or more information on the Riverwood Inn, call (707) 943-1766 or the restaurant at (707) 943-1930. www.riverwoodinn.info

T

he rustic town of Miranda, which in Latin means “to be admired,” was once a principal stop on the long and arduous automobile trek from San Francisco to Eureka. The town lies to the east of Hwy 101, making it one of a few almost-forgotten towns worth exploring at your leisure along Avenue of the Giants Hwy. Surrounded by scenic redwoods, there is much to admire about Miranda. This town of about 350 people, near the southern entrance to Avenue of the Giants and less than 10 miles from Humboldt Redwoods State Park, now boasts a growing community of artists. The town also offers lodging, dining and shopping amenities not available inside the park.

Avenue of the Giants ~ Myers Flat Don’t Miss Humboldt Redwoods State Park

The natural crown jewel of the county is Humboldt Redwoods State Park. This is a definitive spot to see the magnificence of California’s famous coastal redwoods. In the early part of the last century there was a nationwide effort to save what remained of the old growth redwoods on California’s North Coast. Philanthropists and civic clubs began buying groves of trees for the purpose of preserving them. Humboldt Redwoods State Park was founded in 1921 with one of those purchases, the Bolling Memorial Grove, in honor of a fallen World War I soldier. Today, Humboldt Redwoods is California’s third largest state park, occupying 53,000 acres, including 17,000 acres of pristine old growth redwoods. Humboldt Redwoods’ star attraction is the Avenue of the Giants. The park is rarely crowded, and offers more than 250 campsites in three large drive-in campgrounds. There are environmental, group, backcountry and horse camps. Hikers can enjoy more than 100 miles of trails, some of which are also open to equestrians and mountain-bikers. The South Fork of the Eel River provides fishing, boating and great swimming holes. The park also features a number of day-use areas. The Humboldt Redwoods Visitor Center, on the Avenue of the Giants between Myers Flat and Redcrest, is the heart of the park. It is large and comprehensive, staffed by knowledgeable volunteers. Call the Visitor Center at (707) 946-2263. www.humboldtredwoods.org

Take a Driving Tour of the Redwoods

Take an historic drive through the redwoods. The 32-mile stretch of road running parallel to today’s Hwy 101 follows an old stagecoach road. As the old mill towns began to fade and traffic increased, the state decided to preserve an old section of the road running directly through Humboldt Redwoods State Park. Whether you start at the north entrance near Pepperwood south of Fortuna, or from the south entrance a few miles out of Phillipsville, you’ll get the real redwood experience. The stops are numbered 1 through 8 from the southern Avenue of the Giants entrance at Phillipsville. Plan for at least an hour so you can stop and see the sights. From north to south, stop

Take a Hike Through the Trees

Humboldt Redwoods State Park has hundreds of miles of trails. There are so many it’s hard to decide where to hike. Here are the five best hikes chosen by the volunteers of the Humboldt Redwoods Interpretive Association, who staff the Visitor Center. A map available at the Visitor Center for under $2 clearly marks the location of the trails in the park. 1. Founder’s Grove Nature Loop Trail. An easy hike, just over twothirds of a mile in total. The trailhead is easy to find off the Avenue of the Giants about four miles north of the Visitor Center. (See map on pages 30 and 31 for trailhead locations) 2. Rockefeller Loop Trail in Rockefeller Forest. The trailhead is off Mattole Rd., about a mile west of where Mattole Rd. joins the Avenue of the Giants, four miles north of the Visitor Center. In this short hike, also just two-thirds of a mile long, hikers will find 17 of the world’s 100 tallest Rockefeller Forest, photo by Denise Comiskey trees. 3. Bull Creek Trail South. This is a seven-mile round-trip hike through the Bull Creek State Wilderness. At 10,000 acres, it is the largest section of old-growth redwood forest left. This trail is accessed off the Rockefeller Loop Trail. 4. Johnson Camp Trail. This 10-mile round-trip trail has some steep sections as it climbs to a backcountry camp. Hikers will find deserted cabins the loggers once slept in, along with other interesting artifacts from the heyday of logging. This is also an equestrian trail, so hikers may encounter horseback travelers along the way. The trailhead is about six miles west on Mattole Rd., across from the Albee Creek Campground. 5. Grasshopper Multiuse Trail. This is a 14-mile round-trip that takes hikers to the fire lookout atop Grasshopper Peak, which tops out at 3,379 feet. It is an 8-hour round trip for average hikers, who enjoy stunning views of the entire park from the lookout. There is a backcountry campground just below the peak. This trail is open to horses and bicycles, and hikers are likely to encounter both. Access the trail from the Johnson Camp trailhead.

Avenue of the Giants ~ Myers Flat Enjoy Eel River’s Swimming Holes

One of the most striking features of Humboldt County is the magnificent Eel River. The North and Middle Forks of the Eel have been designated as part of the National Wild and Scenic River system, and the Eel River’s watershed is the third largest in California. The river flows through five counties with winding lazy curves to churning whitewater. It runs parallel to the coast and Hwy 101. A large part of its run is through the Avenue of the Giants, making Hwy 101 and the Avenue two of the most scenic roads in Southern Humboldt. The South Fork of the river skirts the eastern edge of Humboldt Redwoods State Park. During the summer months, the river’s tributaries are slow-moving streams that provide a number of natural pools and safe swimming holes. There are many river access sites within the park. Dyerville Flats, located where the South Fork joins the main branch of the Eel River, features restrooms, picnic tables, an overlook and ample parking. Dyerville is located four miles north of the Visitor Center and a short distance beyond the turnout for Founders Grove and the intersection of Mattole Rd. The easiest river access to find from the Visitor Center is Gould Bar. A sign marks where the gravel road intersects Avenue of the Giants on the west, just tenths of a mile north of the center. A short drive takes you to two large swimming holes. You can also hike there from the Visitor Center’s parking lot or Burlington campground. High Rock is another access point that is easy to get to. Watch for the High Rock bar sign as you drive north on Avenue the Giants about six miles from the Visitor Center. A short drive down a gravel road takes you photo by Andy Bird to a parking area. From there, it’s a short walk to the expansive bar that offers several ideal and placid sites. For more information, call the Humboldt Redwoods State Park Visitor Center at (707) 946-2263.

Stay at a Stagecoach Stop, the Myers Country Inn

The peaceful village of Myers Flat is nestled in the heart of the redwood forest, a centerpiece of the Avenue of the Giants. The Myers Country Inn, a delightful B&B, anchors the village which formed up around it over 130 years ago when it was a stagecoach stop on the way to the Northern California gold fields. Jack London, the famous San Francisco author, was said to have stayed there often as he traveled up and down the old Pacific Highway on his many adventures. The Inn still basks in period furnishings and regales in its history with old news clippings and photos hang throughout the building. The ambience is as warm and friendly as the fireplace in the lobby, and the breakfasts are home-cooked and country-hearty. The Myers Country Inn is surrounded by great amenities for the Redwood visitor. A four-star restaurant, winery and tasting room (Riverbend Cellars and Groves Restaurant) are just across the Avenue. Directly across from the inn is a coffee shop and a market for your traveling convenience. Within walking distance of the Inn are antique and collectible shops, a coin-operated laundry and Myers Flat’s own Drive-Through Tree. Stay for an extended visit in the largest Redwood Forest worldwide, plan an eight-day eco-tour and experience life as it was when the stage line ran through this charming riverside village. For more information, call the Myers Country Inn at (800) 500-6464. www.myersinn.com

Drive Through a Tree

During the early 1920s, promoters of California’s tourism industry devised a clever way to entice visitors to see the captivating beauty of the redwood forests—cut a tunnel through a redwood and charge people a fee to drive their cars through to the other side. It was a great photo opportunity that quickly caught on. In time, there were drive-thru trees, drive-on trees, walk-through trees and even step-thru stumps. Three trees with open trunks remain, one near Humboldt Redwoods State Park on Hwy 101. All are privately owned, charge a nominal entrance fee and are open daily year-round. The Original Drive-Thru Tree is one of California’s oldest tourist attractions and is located in Myers Flat, off Hwy 101, Exit #656 on the Avenue of the Giants. Known worldwide as the Shrine of the Redwoods, The natural opening in the tree was created by fire centuries ago. It is large enough for full sized autos and pickups to drive through. This Old Giant is 21 ft. across and 64 ft. around. The Shrine Tree along with the drive-on log, Tree House Village, Cathedral Trees, Rings of History and The Balance Tree are all part of the Shrine Drive Thru Tree Auto Park. Visit the gift shop with quality, locally made items. www.drivethrutree.com

when the area flooded in 1964. There’s also part of an ax left stuck in the tree where loggers tried to cut it down, but eventually gave up when the tree would not give way. Several times, the Immortal Tree has been hit by lightning. The evidence of these strikes is on its scarred trunk. During its lifetime, through many forest fires, somehow this magical tree never burned down. The Immortal Tree is considered a truly exceptional specimen. This landmark, located one mile north of Redcrest, makes for a wonderful photo opportunity and is a perfect spot for a picnic.

 THE FLOOD OF 1964

Located 1.7 miles north of Redcrest, California, the Park rests amongst the tallest and oldest living things in the world — nearby to Founders Grove, the California Federation of Womens Clubs Grove, and the Humboldt Redwoods State Park Visitor Center. Ancient Redwoods is also the home of the Hollow Log Truck.

 THE

UNDERCUT

HISTORY OF THE IMMORTAL TREE

Originally a 1945 White Fire Engine, this truck was modified in 2007 into the “Hollow Log Truck.” The log is approximately 1000 years old. The “Hollow Log Truck” can be seen Memorial Day through Labor Day at the “Burl n’ Drift” novelty and gift shop.

The Immortal Tree is a 950 to 1000 year old redwood. This tree has survived fire, flood and the logger’s axe. In 1908, Holmes Eureka Timber Company harvested about 5000 acres of ancient redwoods. During this harvest an undercut was chopped into this tree with the intention of falling it. It is unclear why the loggers did not finish the back cut. The wound eventually healed but is still visible on the Immortal Tree. After falling the nearby acreage, the loggers lit a fire to remove brush and slash before bucking the timber to length. The forest fire scar and charring is still visible but did not kill this tree. Sometime before 1952, lightning removed the top of the Immortal Tree. In December 1964 a huge flood inundated Holmes Flat and Humboldt County. The high water mark is approximately 17 feet above the base of the tree and is still visible. The next generation, believed to be the fifth, is growing in front of the Immortal Tree.

A GIRTH OF 33 FEET! 

In 1967 Janice and Edward Lewis opened the “Burl n’ Drift” novelty and gift shop, specializing in locally manufactured redwood souvenirs and gifts. Over the years the family-operated shop has increased their own production of redwood products insuring a larger choice and higher quality of redwood gifts. We consider it a pleasure to provide area information and service to the touring public. We also provide clean, ADA restrooms and complimentary picnic area. No trees are harvested to provide our resource material. Shipping is available.

Avenue of the Giants ~ Redcrest Visit the Eternal Tree House

When visiting the Avenue of the Giants, a fascinating stop is the Eternal Tree House. This one-time giant of nature endured over 2,500 years before being reduced to a surviving stump. The still-living stump contains a huge cavern caused by fire centuries ago. It had been used first by Indians and later trappers, hunters, travelers and their livestock for shelter. In the early 1900s, Harry McLeod, an expert wood splitter hewed out the interior with an ax and adz. The 20-foot room was refined in 1950 and a gift shop was established inside the stump. The walls still bear the marks of the work and are mementos of an all but lost art. The tree itself is said to have parented many surrounding trees from its burl. A burl is a hard conglomerate of many dormant buds; the original single bud grew, but failed to develop into a branch. The irregular growth proceeds to divide and redivide until a lump (burl) has formed. Some of the overgrowth is actually a form of scar tissue, resulting from a past injury to the tree. The Eternal Tree House, located at 26510 Avenue of the Giants in Redcrest, offers free admission, a cafe and a gift shop with a large selection of locally crafted redwood products. There is parking for RVs and buses. For more information, call (707) 722-4262.

Visit Julia Morgan’s Four-Sided Fireplace

Early in the 20th century, women’s civic groups around California organized a statewide campaign to protect the redwoods in Humboldt County. In response, the California Federation of Women’s Clubs purchased a grove of giant redwoods next to the South Fork of the Eel River. In 1931, renowned San Francisco architect Julia Morgan, designer of the Hearst Castle, fashioned a monument to celebrate saving the grove from the loggers’ saw. Morgan’s monument stands today in the Federation’s grove, a peculiar four-sided hearth that features fireplaces facing each direction. Officially called the California Federation of Women’s Clubs Hearthstone, it was built of native stone and redwood timber. Morgan’s biographer wrote that the Hearthstone is a symbol for “the untouched nature of the forest and the Federation’s scrupulous protection of this heritage.” The California Federation of Women’s Clubs Grove is easy to reach by car, and is a popular picnic place. Take Avenue of the Giants about three miles north from the Visitor Center. A sign marks a narrow road that runs to the west several hundred yards into the forest, to a parking lot. The hearthstone sits under several tall trees, a few feet back from a bank that overlooks the Eel River. There are several picnic tables, including two built of solid redwood big enough to accommodate a family reunion. This is also a popular spot for weddings.

Scotia

S

photo by Gregg Gardiner

cotia is without a doubt the last chance travelers will have to see a “company” town in America. Scotia is a quaint town steeped in history that is looking forward to a bright new future. A stop in Scotia is in many ways like taking a trip back to the 19th and 20th centuries, when the forests of Humboldt County supplied the building materials for much of California and the West. Company towns like Scotia were established by large lumber companies to provide for the social, commercial and housing needs of their employees. The first employee bunkhouse was built in Scotia in 1884. Today this beautiful town is located on a striking wooded hillside overlooking a giant bend in the Eel River about 30 miles south of Eureka. The 270 picturesque cottages built between the 1920s and 1950s with manicured yards and white picket fences evoke memories of an earlier time. Driving through the town, it is easy to envision Scotia as it was from its founding in 1863 as Forestville, to be renamed “Scotia” 25 years later. Unlike many other company towns, Scotia did not close down during the Great Depres-

sion — it survived that period and now has outlasted the environmental battles and financial hardships of modern times. In fact, the Town of Scotia Company, LLC now owns and operates the town. Excellent opportunities for owning property or doing business in Scotia are materializing as the transition from company town to thriving independent community take place. A 2008 court decision finalized new leadership at the sawmill and a new company, Humboldt Redwood Company now runs it. They have vowed to practice sustainable logging and to manage productive forestlands with a high standard of environmental stewardship. This includes not cutting any old growth redwood born prior to 1800 with a diameter of four feet or more on any of their nearly 328 square miles of coastal forest. Amenities in Scotia include a grocery store with a very popular deli, a pharmacy, bank, hardware store, community recreation center, a picnic area, baseball field and soccer field as well as many other businesses.

uch like neighboring Scotia, Rio Dell grew from the lumber industry, and thrives now as part of the visitor industry. The city is nicknamed “The Warm-Hearted

City.” Rio Dell is a rural community located 25 miles south of Eureka, with a city population of about 3,250. It sits in a beautiful valley surrounded by wooded mountains and the Eel River. The climate in Rio Dell is generally mild. The town is in the midst of a renaissance marked by substantial residential development. Many people come to Rio Dell to build or buy homes for retirement. When questioned as to why someone might retire in Rio Dell, the usual answers are its fair climate and the unsurpassed beauty of its surroundings. Rio Dell has an excellent park, with a picnic area and playground, a baseball diamond and recreational equipment. There is a municipal tennis court, community library and several churches. There is also a gas station, automotive repair shops, a motel, several dining facilities and other assorted businesses. Redwood Mini Golf and The Old General Store provide a place to have fun with the family and grab a bite to eat. Located in the heart of Rio Dell, their 18-hole miniature golf course is based on the history of Humboldt County’s logging industry, and includes many local landmarks. The General Store has a market and deli which provides pre-made as well as freshly made food to enjoy. For more information, give them a call at (707) 764-2500. Outside Rio Dell are tourist attractions including the Victorian Village of Ferndale and the mill town of Scotia. Pepperwood, nine miles south of Rio Dell, has extraordinary fruit and vegetables in the summer. The Avenue of the Giants, also to the south, has the world’s tallest redwood trees and miles of the most beautiful forest scenery in the world. To the north are the cities of Fortuna and Eureka with commercial sales and distinct sites of tourist interest. Further north is the university town of Arcata.

Fortuna

F

Apple Harvest Festival, photo by Mackenzie Kincaid, www.redroanstudios.com

armers, merchants and lumbermen from northern Humboldt County established the town of Fortuna around 1875. It was originally called Slide because of its location near a giant landslide between the Eel River and the hills. As the Springville Mill was being constructed, the town’s name was changed to match that of the mill, and because of the numerous springs in the surrounding hills. Its name was later changed back to Slide when it was discovered there already was a Springville, California. Ultimately, the town became Fortuna—because the town’s citizens felt fortunate to live there. It was not just the loggers and lumber barons that first settled in the area. Many Eel River Valley settlers were originally drawn to California by the prospects of gold. They soon returned to the farming life they had known in the East, settling the rich lands of the valley to raise livestock, grains and a variety of fruits, especially apples. The valley’s lush ground yielded large crops of fruits and vegetables and the dairy industry became the area’s premier farming occupation. People of different cultures were early settlers to Fortuna. Italians, Swiss and Portuguese settlers worked in the fish canneries, built roads, railroads, and did logging, farming, and dairying,. Many local residents can trace their lineage to these immigrants of a century ago. Fortuna enjoys a moderate climate, which is comfortable in summer, with ample winter and spring rains to provide a favorable growing season. Fortuna is often sunnier than the more coastal towns of Ferndale and Eureka. The warm weather and friendly atmosphere make Fortuna a particularly good setting for a number of annual events. For more than 34 years The Fortuna Garden Club has sponsored the annual Daffodil Show in March that features daffodil competitions, arrangements, music and refreshments. In June the annual wine tasting and art festival, “Art and Wine in the Park,” showcases local wineries that bring out their finest to taste along with wines from throughout northern California. North Coast artists and craftspeople display their handiwork opposite the wine tasting venue. The third weekend in July is the time for the Fortuna Rodeo, the oldest rodeo in northern California, which is much more than just raging bulls and courageous cowhands. The week-long event includes street games, sports and contests, breakfasts and barbecues, a carnival, dances and shows, and a long parade through downtown Fortuna. The fourth weekend in July features Fortuna Redwood Auto Xpo, filling the city with classic cars from near and afar. The last Saturday in September brings Hops in Humboldt to Rohner Park with microbrew tasting and live music. The first Saturday in October is the Apple Harvest Festival with a city-wide celebration including Downtown, Redwood Village, Clendenen’s Ciderworks and more. For more information on events and merchants in the Fortuna area, call the Fortuna Chamber of Commerce at (800) 426-8166. www.discovertheredwoods.com

Play at Rohner Park

Treat yourself and your family to a day in the park. Fortuna’s Rohner Park has a long history of memory-making for local folks and visitors alike. Nestled in a sunny spot, bounded by natural creeks and surrounded by old growth redwoods, it’s perfect for short hikes, picnics and hours of play. The park features a playground, tot lot, horseshoe pits, basketball court and immaculate baseball fields — even free wifi access. There are many beautiful trails on the hillside where you can get lost in the ferns and see some of the oldest redwoods in the area, all within blocks of a small town photo by Mackenzie Kincaid, www.redroanstudios.com main street. The park is a favorite celebration spot and offers an updated cook shack, deep pit barbecue pits and a large picnic area with an outdoor fireplace. Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, community breakfasts and hundreds of family reunions have taken place at the long tables in this wonderful outdoor party room. Rohner Park’s famous rodeo grounds have been the training grounds for most of the area’s cowgirls and cowboys, and each summer hosts the Fortuna Rodeo. Fortuna’s beloved Depot Museum, which holds many of the city’s historical records, artifacts and treasures, is located at the park’s entrance. The Firemen’s Pavilion has hosted weekend roller-skating for several generations and is also a favorite dance and party venue. This lovely 55-acre park is located at 5 Park St., just off Main St., in Fortuna.

Ride on Horseback Through the Redwoods

Set out on a hike through the Headwaters Forest Reserve with a knowledgeable guide. Meet up with the Park Ranger who will be your guide at Newburg Park in Fortuna, and explore the wonder of old growth redwoods and beautiful forests. The trail’s first half-mile passes through a young to middle-aged forest with views of restored watershed areas. The next two miles ascend through the old-growth forest with a view across Salmon Creek to the largest stand of Douglas fir and Redwood trees within the Reserve. The trail loops back as it descends through the old-growth. The hike is 2.6 miles round trip and takes about 3 hours to complete; it is a moderately strenuous hike. Guided hikes are offered May through November and are available by reservation only; call (707) 825-2300 for further information or to schedule your trip. www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/fo/arcata/headwaters.html

ortuna’s Riverwalk is a two-mile path along the Eel River, which offers bikers and hikers an intimate look at one of the North Coast’s wild rivers. In summer and early fall, the river is usually a tiny ribbon meandering through a huge channel of sand and gravel created by its awesome winter flows. During winter, after a heavy rain, the river can rise to within a few yards of the levee. The air is fresh and sweet and views are spectacular. The Riverwalk area has become a perfect stop for travelers along Hwy 101 with several hotels, restaurants and conveniences all within walking distance. There is an RV Park and also tent and cabin sites. It makes an excellent base from which to tour the Eel River Valley, with many amenities for residents and travelers alike. The River Lodge Conference Center is located photo by Steve Hammons on the Riverwalk. A beautifully designed rustic-looking yet modern structure, the venue has become a part of the natural landscape with modern amenities including wireless internet access. It features meeting and banquet space in a variety of beautifully appointed rooms and can host groups from 10 to 500. Local artists have provided their interpretations of the natural environment that surrounds Fortuna, and their works are displayed in the lobby gallery. There is also a gift shop featuring locally produced products. On the grounds you will see Northern California’s largest and most diverse heather garden featuring more than 400 different varieties of heaths and heathers. For more information on the River Lodge Conference Center, call (707) 725-7572.

Ferndale Frolic on a Ferndale Beach

Just outside Ferndale, discover a pristine beach on the Pacific Ocean, which stretches for nine miles with dairy farms to the north and steep cliffs to the south. At Centerville County Park and Beach, have an exciting afternoon filled with hiking, picnicking, beachcombing and wildlife viewing. Sandpipers dance on the water’s edge and cormorants, pelicans and gulls soar over the water in search of a meal in the depths below. Between the middle of November and the beginning of March, Eel River Bottoms, visible from the beach, is one of the largest coastal congregations for tundra swans. A cross overlooking the sandy shore memorializes travelers who died in an 1860 shipwreck when a steamer sank offshore. You can spot harbor seals sunbathing on the breakers a short way from the shore. Gray whales can be seen from the beach, migrating south during the winter months and heading north from January through May. You may even see mother whales and their babies coming close to shore in April and May. One of the best lookouts is just south of the beach on Centerville Rd. ATVs, 4-wheel drive vehicles and even horses are welcome to travel the sand. At night, build a small fire and gather around with friends and family while roasting marshmallows and gazing at the bright stars. You can even acquire a special permit and go fishing for night smelt. There is no camping on the beach, but it can be enjoyed from 5 a.m. to midnight. Centerville County Park and Beach is located five miles west of Ferndale on Centerville Rd. For more information, call (707) 445-7651.

Visit the Ferndale Cemetery

A stroll through Ferndale’s cemetery is a trip through the history of the town and the people who founded it. Some of the headstones date back to the 1800s, and many of the town’s first pioneers and most venerable citizens have been laid to rest here. The graves are carefully tended and you’ll often find fresh flowers on even the oldest of gravestones. Take a walk among the tombstones and mausoleums, and enjoy the lofty vantage point: the cemetery sits on a hill overlooking the town, which affords visitors with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, the town of Ferndale, and the Eel River Valley. You’ll find the cemetery on Bluff St., just a block away from downtown Ferndale. Ferndale Cemetery, photo by Mackenzie Kincaid, www.redroanstudios.com

erndale’s neighbor, Loleta, is a small, picturesque dairy community about 12 miles south of Eureka. The original name of the community was Swauger’s Station, but in 1897 a faction of the community who objected to that name were successful in changing it to the Wiyot name for the site, Lo-le-tah, meaning “pleasant place at the end of the water.” The most direct route to Loleta is to take the Loleta Dr. exit from Hwy 101. Today Loleta is still a pleasant place, sitting on the gently rolling foothills of the Eel River Valley with a spectacular view of the valley, river, dairy ranches and the Pacific Ocean beyond. It is well known for its cheese, ranch products and antiques. One of the primary reasons that visitors come to Loleta is the Loleta Cheese Factory, which produces more than 30 varieties and flavors of cheese. Visitors can sample a wide variety of award-winning local cheeses, view the cheese-making process through large viewing windows and then take a stroll through the beautiful garden area. The Loleta Bakery has been described as an old-fashioned meeting place with a slow pace, whole foods, fresh-roasted coffee and hand-dipped chocolates. It specializes in Old World breads, but it also features pastries, espresso, paninis, chocolate truffles and imported tea. For close to 40 years the best-known local event has been the Loleta Antiques Show, which is billed as the largest antique show north of San Francisco. Buyers and sellers from all over the West Coast, and beyond, flock to the tiny town to haggle over a variety of wares. The show is sponsored by the Loleta Fire Department, and is held in their Firemen’s Pavilion, usually in October. For more information, call (707) 498-2671. www.loletafire.com/loletaantiqueshow.html Traveling west on Table Bluff Rd. from Loleta leads to the South Spit, a sandy peninsula open for day-use picnicking, beachcombing, hiking, horse-back riding, fishing and hunting. At the tip of the spit is the South Jetty, the entrance to Humboldt Bay. It is an ideal spot to watch fishing boats and other vessels come and go. www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/fo/arcata/south_spit.html

Eureka

ike many of the towns in Humboldt County, the city of Eureka got its start as a Gold Rush transport center and later a logging and milling town—full of bars, brothels and card rooms patronized by hundreds of loggers and sailors. Visitors who imagine the days of old might be surprised to find the sophisticated, small city Eureka has become today. With a population of more than 28,000, Eureka is the cultural, political and economic hub of Humboldt County. While logging is still a principal part of the local economy, Eureka also caters to an increasingly diversified local population. Proud of its history, the city has hundreds of beautifully restored houses and commercial buildings, such as those in the Old Town area. Eureka also has hotels, inns, restaurants and galleries that rival those in much larger cities. Rivers, ocean, marshes, mountains and forests are all in close proximity. The next thing to do is get off busy Hwy 101 and into the quiet neighborhoods. A turn toward Humboldt Bay off the highway (4th or 5th St. in the heart of Eureka) between C and M Sts. will bring the visitor to Eureka’s Old Town district. At the foot of F St. is the Eureka Boardwalk, which runs for five blocks along the waterfront area. Lined with benches, signal flags and other nautical touches, the boardwalk affords views of the Woodley Island Marina, Humboldt Bay and local wildlife. The city continues to work on waterfront development and enhancement. An easy stroll behind the Carson Mansion at the top of 2nd St. leads to the lovely, massive Humboldt County Library. Comfortable chairs and great views encourage patrons to curl up with a good book. The Humboldt Arts Council and Morris Graves Museum of Art sit at 7th and F Sts. The impressive building has permanent and rotating exhibits, a photo gallery and a sculpture garden. For further information, call (707) 442-0278. www.humboldtarts.org The Eureka Theatre, a streamlined modern movie house built in 1939, was renovated by a local nonprofit. The theater is located next to the Morris Graves Museum of Art. For more information, call (707) 442-2970. www.eurekatheater.org A short drive over the Samoa Bridge leads to the Woodley Island Marina. The marina was dedicated in 1981 and has berths for 350 vessels. It is probably the best spot to view the waterfront and much of the local fishing fleet. The Café Marina has outdoor tables, so food and a view can be enjoyed simultaneously. A sculpture by local artist Dick Crane stands at the end of the marina. It is dedicated to the memory of fishermen who have been lost at sea. At the end of the Samoa Bridge, a left turn will take visitors to the Samoa Cookhouse, a lumber-camp restaurant that still serves meals in the hearty fashion of yesteryear. The restaurant also houses a logging museum. Another great way to see this wildlife as well as other pleasing sights is aboard the M.V. Madaket, a tour boat that offers several daily excursions on the bay. Built on Humboldt Bay in 1910, the Madaket is the oldest continuously operating passenger boat on the Pacific Coast, and is operated by the Humboldt Bay Maritime Museum, which is located next to the Samoa Cookhouse. The Madaket also houses California’s smallest licensed bar. For further information, call (707) 445-1910. www.humboldtbaymaritimemuseum.com/madaketcruises.html Another outstanding museum in Eureka is the Clarke Museum, which has its exhibits housed in a 1912 bank building. The museum features the history of Humboldt County, with emphasis on the late 1800s. The permanent displays include furniture, glassware, clothing and other items from the Victorian period. The Native American Wing features a world-recognized collection of baskets, regalia, stoneware, implements and more. For further information, call (707) 443-1947. www.clarkemuseum.org Fort Humboldt State Historic Park is on a bluff overlooking Humboldt Bay. The fort was established in 1853 to assist in conflict resolution between Native Americans, goldseekers and settlers who began flooding into the area after the discovery of gold in the mines of northern California. Later it became the headquarters for the Humboldt Military District. It was during this period that Fort Humboldt saw one of its most famous residents—young Captain Ulysses S. Grant. The isolation of Fort Humboldt was so unappealing to Grant that after serving as the commanding officer of Company F for six months, he resigned his commission. Today the Fort features a historical museum dedicated to telling the story of the Fort and the Native American tribes of the region—the Wiyot, Hoopa and Yurok. On the grounds is a Logging Museum with open-air displays of historic 19th to mid-20th century logging equipment, including a working Dolbeer Steam Donkey, the Bear Harbor Lumber Company’s Gypsy Locomotive #1, and the Elk River Mill and Lumber Company’s #1 “Falk” locomotive. During the summer there are monthly live “steam-ups” of the equipment. For further information, contact the State Historic Park at (707) 445-6567. www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=665 About eight miles south on Hwy 101, travelers can visit the picturesque campus of the College of the Redwoods, one of California’s 107 community colleges. CR, as it is known locally, has a student body of approximately 7,000. It offers courses for students who wish to obtain associate degrees or to complete the first two years of a bachelor’s Please say you saw it in 101 Things To Do ®

ld Town is a living tribute to Eureka’s respect for its roots and historic past. By the l950s and 1960s, the fine old 19th century commercial buildings and Victorian houses of this several-block stretch near the waterfront were showing their age. Community groups, as well as historical organizations in other parts of California, launched the Century III Project, which secured low-interest loans from the federal government to restore the oldest part of town to its original state, with a few embellishments to boot. While not quite original—there are no livery stables in this new incarnation, no shipfitters or sawmills—the area is true to its historic roots. First, 2nd and 3rd Sts. make up the heart of Old Town. It is a mix of shops, restaurants, small businesses, galleries and watering holes. Some of the best restaurants in Eureka are in Old Town. Easily the most famous structure in Old Town is the Carson Mansion, which rises above Old Town at the head of 2nd St. This elaborately ornamented Victorian was built in the 1880s for lumber baron William Carson and is an incredible mixture of towers and turrets. While it can be enjoyed from the outside, it is now a private club, not open to the public. Across the street from the Carson Mansion stands another large Victorian structure. Affectionately called “The Pink Lady,” it was also built for the Carson family. Directly behind the Carson Mansion is the wonderful Humboldt County Library. Another architectural attraction is the Carter House Inn on the corner of 3rd and L Sts. This beautiful Victorian is actually a re-creation finished in 1982 from 1884 blueprints of a San Francisco mansion that was destroyed in the earthquake of 1906. The brick crosswalks, iron benches and planters bright with flowers make 2nd St. the heart of Old Town but there are great things to see on cross streets too. The Clarke Memorial Museum, located in a columned former bank building at 3rd and E Sts., has an

The Humboldt Arts Council spearheaded the restoration of Eureka’s Carnegie Free Library into the Morris Graves Museum of Art. Only a few blocks from Old Town, it is located at 7th and F Sts. In 1999, the building underwent renovation and improvements, and now houses the Humboldt Arts Council’s permanent art collection and provides exhibit space for North Coast artisans. For further information on their exhibits and special events contact them at (707) 442-0278. www.humboldtarts.org Those who want to explore the bay by kayak or sailboat can do so at Humboats Kayak Adventures, a rental facility located on Woodley Island.

The Vance is the second-largest timber-framed structure remaining in California. The restored building houses a variety of professional businesses and a spa. The old hotel rooms are offices. There is also a major plan afoot to resurrect the abandoned “Balloon Tract” of Union Pacific to create a multi-use center of residential, commercial and environmental facilities.

Visit Humboldt Bay Maritime Museum

Humboldt Bay was settled in the early 19th century and has had a rich seafaring history filled with adventure, passion, and especially, disaster. From 1850 to 1914, the best way to carry passengers and goods to and from this area was by sea. Between the 1850s and 1940s, more than 40 ships, and more if you count fishing boats, met their demise in and around the treacherous harbor entrance. Many aspects of maritime life of the North Coast and Humboldt Bay come alive as soon as you step through the door of the Humboldt Bay Maritime Museum. It is filled with artifacts that will show you about the shipwrecks, shipbuilding, lumber schooners, fishing boats, ferries, tugs and the lighthouses that lit the way for all boats to pass safely into the harbor. They even have a lighthouse lens from the middle of the 19th century. The M.V. Madaket, a 1910 passenger ferry located at the foot of F St., offers cruises around Humboldt Bay and is also operated by the museum. The Humboldt Bay Maritime Museum is located next to the Samoa Cookhouse in Samoa, over the Samoa Bridge, and is open Wednesday through Sunday from 11.a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call (707) 444-9440. www.humboldtbaymaritimemuseum.com

Eureka Visit Old Town Eureka

Old Town Eureka has the delightful charm of a European village or Victorian seaport. Established in 1850, the town was and still is Humboldt County’s major port. The lumber, dairy and shipping industries supported those who called the area home. Today, you can stroll along the bustling downtown streets, past beautifully restored buildings of varied architectural styles. With the setting of a picturesque boardwalk and marina on its waterfront, Old Town Eureka has maintained both its history and spirit. For those interested in Victorian architecture, Eureka boasts numerous gems. Foremost of these is the Carson Mansion, a lumber baron’s castle constructed of redwood, and touted as the most photographed Victorian building in the country. There are also four museums, the Woodley Island Marina and horsedrawn carriage rides. At the right time of year, you’ll see festivals, parades and farmers markets. The town boasts dozens of fine restaurants and coffee houses. Whether you like the atmosphere of a casual internet café or the elegant ambiance of French cuisine, Eureka has a perfect eatery for you. When you feel like doing a little shopping, you’ll find numerous art galleries, boutiques and bead shops, as well as excellent bookstores selling rare, out-of-print, collectible and used books. Look for the brochure listing all the shops by type published by Eureka Main Street. It also includes a self-guided walking tour.

Take a Walking Tour of Eureka’s Murals

One of the great things about Eureka is the amazing support the town gives to local artists. Public, outdoor art manifests itself in the form of murals on the walls of buildings all over the Old Town and Downtown centers of Eureka. One of the best ways to appreciate this amazing outdoor art is to take the self-guided walking tour, which will lead you to all the murals. You will get a short explanation of the significance of each mural and find out which artist created the display of art in front of you. You will see amazing pieces like “Indian Island,” “Alley Cats” and “Busy Dogs,” just to name a few. Artist Duane Flatmo is renowned in the area for his unique cubist murals. The tremendous colors and inspiring scenes add so much to Eureka, and the thriving artistic community is both nationally known and embraced by local residents. This fabulous little tour gives you a chance to breathe the fresh coastal air and feel the sunshine on your face while you enjoy the brilliant artwork sprawled across the cityscape. After the walking tour, you can take a short drive, included on your photo by Doug Noble map, to see the rest of Eureka’s murals. To get the self-guided map of the town, stop by the Chamber of Commerce at 2112 Broadway and ask for the Eureka Murals Walking Tour Guide.

Admire Abstract Sculpture in Old Town and Downtown

The city of Eureka installed an array of abstract sculptures in the Old Town and Downtown areas, to form an art walk between the Morris Graves Museum and Old Town, linking up with art that is already present in public areas. The sculptures were donated by Janis Milstead of the San Francisco Bay Area, and are the work of several of the founding members of the Pacific Rim Sculpture Group, an organization intended to bring Bay Area sculptors together to share their love of art and show their work. Also recently, sculptures have been added to the newly opened C Street Market Square. The market is a project of the Eureka Redevelopment Agency and is located at the foot of C St. along Eureka’s waterfront. Humboldt County is known for its commitment to the arts and its large population of artists, and public arts installations like these further cement that reputation. There are plans to add more sculpture installations throughout the downtown area in the coming years. For more information, visit Eureka Main Street at 525 2nd St., or call (707) 442-9054.

Eureka Visit the Humboldt Botanical Gardens

Twenty years ago, a few enthusiastic dreamers believed our region needed a botanical garden. Today that dream is well on its way to fulfillment. While most botanical gardens are publicly funded or donated in a mature state to a botanical foundation or educational institution, the Humboldt Botanical Garden is a grassroots garden grown through the generosity of our local community.

Celebrate Native Culture at the Intertribal Gathering

There is a romanticized perception of American Indians based upon stereotypes that portrays all Tribes as a single culture. Despite this misconception not all Tribes share the same ceremonies, language or traditions. The Northwest Intertribal Gathering and Elders Dinner is one way to learn about the uniqueness of a variety of Tribes. The Intertribal Gathering allows non-native people a glimpse at the depth and beauty of Native cultures while providing American Indians a chance to share and embrace their traditions. With November being Native American Heritage Month the event is a way for the community to learn from one another in the spirit of Thanksgiving. The gathering is a wonderful celebration of our Elders, Native cultures, Veterans and the friendship of all peoples. Each November the Northern California Indian Development Council (NCIDC) hosts the annual Gathering at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds. Entrance into the event is free for everyone. It is a day of celebration that includes a salmon and turkey dinner (Elders 55+ eat free), a gift giving ceremony for all Elders, and a veterans honoring ceremony. Groups representing the American Indian Tribes from throughout California provide song, dance and drum demonstrations. For more information, call 445-8451. www.ncidc.org

Ride Your ATV at Samoa Dunes

If you love to ride your ATV or have been itching to try the sport, head to the Samoa Dunes Recreation Area. This is a great place to go for an afternoon of launching up and over sand dunes, making sharp turns and triggering sand to shoot into the air. With more than 140 acres of trails and beach, there is plenty of space to play. There is also a 75-acre riding area known as Eureka Dunes, which is now open to off-highway vehicles. It extends about one mile north of the park. Take a break from all the fun to cook some food on one of the grills. If you are not an ATV enthusiast, you’ll still enjoy the many other activities the park provides, such as strolling down the jetty, hiking, surfing, fishing, seeing the starfish clinging to the jetty rocks, beachcombing or bird-watching. A variety of sea- and shore-birds can be seen nesting and resting in the cypress tree groves throughout the 300-acre park. The northeast 40 acres are dedicated to the protection of the Humboldt Bay wallflower, which is now an endangered plant. While walking around, you may even encounter heaps of shells, which were discarded by the Wiyot Indians who used this land long ago as a seasonal gathering site for shellfish. The Samoa Dunes Recreation Area provides fun opportunities for every member of the family, but ATVs are not available to rent. To get to the park, take Hwy 255 off Hwy 101 in Eureka. Go across the Samoa Bridge and turn left (south) onto New Navy Base Rd. Drive about four miles down the road to the end. For more information, call (707) 825-2300. www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/fo/arcata/samoa.html

Established in 1971, the refuge was created to preserve the great diversity of birds, mammals, fish, amphibians, invertebrates and plants in Humboldt Bay. In spring, the bay’s eelgrass beds are a key staging area for brant prior to their return to Arctic nesting grounds. The Refuge grasslands provide important habitat for thousands of Aleutian Canada geese. It is one of the key points for the millions of migratory birds that rely on the Pacific Flyway. More than 200 bird species, including 80 kinds of water birds and four endangered species, regularly feed, rest or nest in the Refuge. The Richard J. Guadagno Visitor Center is open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (except Federal holidays) and has dioramas and an observation room equipped with spotting scopes. There are exciting things to see and do year-round, with peak wildlife viewing from November through March, including hunting and fishing in designated seasons, and the popular Aleutian Geese Fly-Off in early spring. Enjoy a solitary stroll over the various trails or take a guided walk on the first and third Wednesdays, or second Sunday of the month. All walks leave the Visitor Center at 9 a.m. Sorry, no dogs allowed. The Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge is located 1020 Ranch Rd., off the Hwy 101 Hookton Rd. Exit in Loleta.

Take a Hike in Headwaters Forest

Date __________________________

_______________

Date __________________________

Imagine standing under a towering forest canopy, streams of light coming through the leaves and the gentle twitter of birds echoing from the woods surrounding you. This is a beautifully tranquil experience, which everyone should have at least once in their life. The Headwaters Forest Reserve, just south of Eureka, offers an ideal setting for this experience. The reserve serves as a habitat for threatened animals, such as the marbled murrelet and the coho salmon. There are two different sections to this 7,500-acre forest. The northern section is open from dawn to dusk for anyone wanting a pleasurable hike through the redwoods. The Elk River Trail is an 11-mile roundtrip hike past streams, the south fork of the Elk River and several magnificent courtesy of Bureau of Land Management; www.blm.gov old-growth stands. The entrance is six miles southeast of Eureka along Elk River County Rd. The Elk River Trail is a wilderness area, and wild animals such as bear and mountain lion do inhabit the region. One mile into the Elk River Trail hike you will find the remains of what was once a mill town called Falk, named after its founder Noah Falk, who migrated here in the late 1800s during the gold rush. Upon arrival Falk was enamored with the redwoods and came to see them as his own form of gold. Falk built a sawmill on the site, and a town with a population of nearly 400 sprung up around it. The mill and the town operated for nearly 30 years until the Great Depression in 1937, when the mill shut down and the town followed shortly after. Through the mid 1900s Falk became a ghost town and in 1979 the buildings were finally taken down due to liability factors. Today, hikers along the Elk River Trail can see where this town once stood. Interpretative signs along the trail point out the sight where the mill and the town’s buildings once stood. Where now all that remain are haunting foundations, ghostly relics of metal machinery left behind, and the giant stumps of age-old trees who fell in the mill’s path. The other portion of the reserve, the southern end, can only be accessed on a BLMled guided hike, beginning at Newburg Park in Fortuna. The guided hikes are conducted between mid-May and mid-November, Thursdays through Sundays. For further details, see the feature on page 43. For more information on any of the trails and guided walks at Headwaters Forest Reserve, call the Bureau of Land Management at (707) 825-2300. www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/fo/arcata/headwaters.html

Arcata

M

any diverse elements have contributed to the mix that is Arcata. Founded in 1850 as Union Town, Arcata originally served as a depot and base camp for the gold fields in the Trinity Alps to the east and lumber camps all around. Arcata has always been a lumber town and throughout much of this century was dotted with mills large and small. At present, lumber plays a lesser role and Arcata has an economy that includes tourism, education, manufacturing, a healthy retail base and various service industries. The resident population is an intriguing combination of students, senior citizens, artists and all manner of working folk. Arcata has a true center, Arcata Plaza, around which the community turns. Once home to grazing cows and pack animals, today the Plaza serves as the central focus of commercial and festive activities. Several historic buildings in Arcata have been restored. Jacoby’s Storehouse, located on the south side of the plaza is one example. It was built by Augustus Jacoby, a prominent local merchant, who saw how quickly wooden buildings turned to tinder. In 1857, he completed his “fireproof storehouse.” Built of locally quarried stone and bricks, with decorative stonework and iron shutters, the building quickly became a source of pride to the whole community. The storehouse, designated a Historical Landmark, is one of the most beautiful restorations on the North Coast. Across the plaza is the statuesque Hotel Arcata. The hotel was completely renovated several years ago and is a remarkable example of early hotel design. Arcata is home to the Minor Theatre, the oldest continuously run theater in the country. The Minor is located at 10th and H Sts. Arcata is also home to one of the oldest colleges in the California State University system. Humboldt State University was founded in 1913 as a teachers college and was called Humboldt Normal School. Humboldt State can be seen against the backdrop of the Community Forest on the east side of Hwy 101. The university has passed through many stages in subsequent years. After World War II, Humboldt was known as a forestry and natural resources school. Today those programs John Van Duzer Theatre at HSU still flourish but the uniphoto by John Chapman, centerarts.humboldt.edu versity also boasts new additions, such as a modern marine lab and a fisheries and wildlife building, completed in May 1999. The curricula in environmental education, business, liberal and creative arts are nationally known and imitated. Arcata is a wonderful place to spend a few days. Drive out to Mad River Beach to see the crashing surf. Afterwards, let the Friends of the Dunes guide you through the finest example of fragile sand dune flora on the West Coast at the Lanphere-Christensen Dune Preserve. Have lunch at one of Arcata’s fine restaurants, and then take the walking tour of Arcata’s splendid Victorian and Greek Revival homes or a self-guided tour (brochure available at the Chamber of Commerce).

Another fascinating and educational activity is to explore the Historic Logging Trail in the Arcata Community Forest in Redwood Park. To reach the trail, follow Redwood Park Rd. from the intersection of 14th and Union. Follow the Nature Trail (trail number one) that begins at the west side of the parking lot. Redwood Park also contains a playground, picnic areas, mountain biking trails and a community center that is available for special events. Arcata has several options for those who want to enjoy some nightlife. Humboldt State University has ongoing theater, dance and musical performances, and there are numerous taverns and restaurants in town. Arts! Arcata, held on the second Friday of each month in Arcata Plaza, is open house for local businesses and artists and features musical performances, dance, demonstrations and fine arts by Humboldt County artisans. A great way to spend a summer evening is to watch the Humboldt Crabs semi-pro baseball team at the Arcata ballpark at 8th and F Sts. The Crabs are one of the top-rated teams in the country and the ballpark is small and intimate. The Fourth of July celebrations should not be missed in Arcata as the whole town comes out to party with barbecues, music, food, baseball and other old-fashioned, small-town pleasures. An official California Welcome Center in north Arcata provides information on Humboldt County. Take Hwy 101 two miles north of downtown Arcata to the Giuntoli exit. The Welcome Center is on the west side of the highway on Heindon Rd.

On the Arcata Plaza ...beads...beading supplies...beading classes...

OF

n 1850, when the Union Wharf and Plank Company laid out the town of Union, now Arcata, it had the foresight to designate block 167 as a park or common area. It is possible that some of the hardy types who were on the North Coast after a headlong rush to the gold fields remembered the commons of their New England homes or the squares of sleepy Southern towns. Whatever the reason, this precious block, now the Arcata Plaza, was saved for posterity. Not that it was treated all that reverently at first. Early arrivals camped on the square in tents, huts or whatever shelter they could contrive while making arrangements to get to the diggings on the Klamath, Trinity or Salmon Rivers. Some people who settled on one of the properties in town thought that the open space in the middle was a fine spot to graze their cows and goats. A bandstand in the center of the plaza was completed in 1901 and citizens planted rosebushes and boxwood around the rich, green lawn in the following years, as well as the first palm trees. The bandstand has since been replaced with a statue of William McKinley, and local businesses have adopted the flower beds. Today, people gather on the plaza to visit, to take a lunch break or just to relax and enjoy the sun. It is a place where craft fairs, sidewalk sales, rallies, demonstrations and just about any other kind of gathering takes place. See pages 10 and 11 for more Arcata Plaza events.

Climb Into the Redwood Canopy

Experience Humboldt County’s towering redwoods in a whole new way: from the tree’s vantage point. The majestic redwoods were featured as the cover story in the October 2009 issue of National Geographic magazine, along with a remarkable pull-out photograph of a giant redwood tree from top to bottom. Now you can experience that view up close and personal with North Coast Adventure Centers’ Redwood Canopy Tour. NCAC’s naturalists and guides will help you step out of your comfort zone and into the canopy. The tour begins with an orientation where you learn terms and techniques that you and your partner need to safely climb, zip, and transfer from tree to tree in the canopy. From there, the tour moves up... and up... and up, 70 feet into a tree called “Trinidad.” You’ll gain a whole new appreciation for the power and beauty of these ancient trees by climbing, zipping and rappelling from their heights. During courtesy of Far North Climbing Gym your journey into the canopy, your guide will teach you about the canopy ecosystem, the majestic redwood habitat, and the balance between preservation and the timber industry on the North Coast. The Redwood Canopy Tour takes 2-3 hours and is not for the faint of heart. Adventurers should be in good physical condition and be willing to “hang out” in the canopy of a Redwood forest, 70 feet up. There is also a 30-foot tree climb and zip traverse for junior climbers and clients who choose not to ascend all the way to the top. For more information, call North Coast Adventure Centers at (800) 808-2836. www.northcoastadventurecenters.com

Visit Laurel Skye’s house of mosaics in Arcata, and take a trip into a magical realm. Within your first steps onto the small bridge that leads to the house you see a mosaic heron to your left, poised majestically as it stands sentry over the koi pond. In front of you, sitting next to the front door is a mannequin with her left leg colorfully tiled and sitting on a beautifully tiled porch bench. This is all before entering the house. SkyeHouse is a mosaic art showcase as well as a visual feast and a unique destination. Laurel Skye and her house of mosaics have been featured on HGTV’s Offbeat America, as well as several TV News spotlights, youtube videos, magazines and newspapers. The house is home to over 200 mosaics, including tiled floors, dishwasher, bathtub, walls, skulls, bottles, fruit, musical instruments, and more. Classes and workshops for those interested in exploring this very tactile medium are taught by Laurel and held at the house. They range from beginner to advanced and are adapted for all ages. The Skyehouse has supplies and a huge collection of mosaic tiles for sale and is open to the public for shopping. Or simply visit and explore the unusual mosaic environment. SkyeHouse Mosaics is located at 948 11th St. in downtown Arcata. Call (707) 822-6677 or email laurelskye@sbcglobal.net for more information or to sign up for workshops. web.me.com/laurelskye

Enjoy the Godwit Days Migration Festival

Humboldt County is a birdwatcher’s dream. Many different species either permanently reside here or migrate through the area on their way to warmer or colder climates. Discover a great way to view natural bird habitats at the Godwit Days Bird Migration Festival held at the Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Area in April. Join kindred spirits as you observe these graceful waterfowl on their northbound journey. This area is perfect for birding because of the amazing amount of natural diversity. Within minutes, move from towering redwood forests to lush river valleys, over sticky mud flats to rugged ocean coastlines. All these different areas support a tremendously diverse bird population. The Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Area is world-renowned for excellent bird-watching opportunities. At the peak of migration season, during the April festival, go out on the “Humboldt Big Day” and see as many as 110 species on a single outing. This is only one of hundreds of field trips, lectures, workshops and boating excursions that take place throughout the festival. Experienced birdwatchers or anyone interested in learning about birds will find few events better suited for this activity than the Godwit Days Bird Migration Festival. For more information, call Godwit Days at (707) 826-7050. www.godwitdays.com

Watch the Humboldt Crabs

Known as America’s favorite pastime, watching baseball is one of the best ways to spend a summer afternoon. Just because there aren’t any Big League teams in Humboldt County, doesn’t mean you can’t have the fun that comes from watching America’s game.

See Arcata’s Historic Beauty

The scenic beauty of Humboldt County is apparent everywhere you look, but visitors might overlook some of the rich historical elements throughout the region. Arcata is a great spot to experience some of these remarkable historic places. The town was settled under the name of Union, around 1850. The area has undergone several different periods as it developed. After what was known as the settlement era, Arcata went through a period of heavy Victorian influence. Many Victorian houses and structures stand to this day and are popular sites for tourists and photographers. The William Nixon House is a great example of architecture from this period. Located on 10th St., it’s hard to believe that this amazing home was originally bought for 500 sacks of potatoes. On 14th St. are mirror-image mansions, which sit across the street from one another. It is amazing to look at these sister houses. Designated historic landmarks include: the Hotel Arcata, 9th and G Sts., built in 1915, which now features a full service hotel and retail shops; Jacoby’s Storehouse, 8th and H Sts., built in 1857, now used for numerous restaurants, shops and offices; and one of the oldest continuously operated theaters in the country, the Minor Theatre at 10th and H Sts., which was built in 1914, is currently operating three movie theaters where current, classic and artistic films are shown. All of these structures have undergone restoration in recent years and feature quality workmanship in the exterior and interior of the buildings. Along with the historical landmarks, visit The Railroad Museum on the ground floor of the Jacoby Storehouse Building. The Museum preserves the memory of the days when Arcata was supplied by rail and port. Jacoby Storehouse is on the Plaza at 8th and H Sts. For more information, please visit the Arcata Main Street office, also in the Jacoby Storehouse on the ground floor. There are so many more fantastic buildings in Arcata, you’ll just have to explore the area for yourself. For more information, call the Historical Sites Society of Arcata at (707) 822-4722. For a self-guided Victorian homes walking tour map call the Arcata Chamber of Commerce at (707) 822-3619. www.arcatachamber.com

At about 10,000 square feet, this park is neither too big nor too small, and is usually not terribly crowded. Better yet, there is no fee to use this public skatepark. While you’re in Humboldt County and get that urge to hit the park with your board, head to the Arcata Skatepark. You will definitely enjoy the ride! The Arcata Skatepark is located one block west of Hwy 101 at 900 Sunset Ave. For more information, call (707) 822-7091.

Ride Your Skateboard at Arcata Skatepark

Skateboarders will find that the Arcata Skatepark a great spot to ride. If you’re not a skater, you’ll still love watching experienced riders hit the concrete and bust some big moves. The park boasts a nice eight-foot bowl, which is perfect for working on vertical moves. Two smaller bowls are connected to a snake run that lets you hit smaller air. Less experienced skaters will find that these little bowls and the surrounding ledges offer a chance to work up to the bigger one.

Go Swimming at the Arcata Community Pool

During certain times of the year, the weather in Humboldt County won’t cooperate when you want to experience the wonderful outdoor activities the area has to offer. If the weather has put a damper on your plans but you still want to be active, head to the Arcata Community Pool and enjoy a day of swimming and sliding. The Arcata Community Pool is completely indoors, so the weather won’t interfere with your enjoyment. No matter what type of swimming activities you enjoy, you’ll have fun at the Arcata Community Pool. There are dedicated lap lanes in the 25-yardlong pool. The pool’s deep end is perfect for jumping and diving. The pool also boasts a one-meter diving board, as well as a poolside basketball hoop. You can enjoy all the great pool sports and activities you love. The shallow end is only between two to four feet deep, so little ones can always have their feet firmly planted on the pool’s bottom. The Arcata Swimming Pool even has a waterslide, more than 120 feet long, which boasts courtesy of HSU Center Activities two full 360-degree turns. Once you’ve worked out in the pool, hit the sauna or hot tub to relax. It’s a perfect finish to a great day of fun. Have a blast enjoying vacation-time thrills. The Arcata Community Pool is located at 1150 16th St. For more information, call the pool at (707) 822-6801. www.humboldt.org/cntract/classes.php?section=4 Please say you saw it in 101 Things To Do ®

Have a Picnic at Freshwater Park

76

Explore Mad River County Park

Freshwater Park is only a couple of miles east of the beautiful little community of Freshwater but steps decades back in time to the days of old-fashioned picnics and family gatherings, complete with a cool, clear fresh water swimming hole. Humboldt County Parks dams Freshwater Creek each year from mid-June to the weekend after Labor Day for the kind of summer swim experience that harkens back generations. In addition, the park offers day-use picnic tables, fire rings, public facilities and a 400-person group event area with Gazebo for country weddings or other outdoor celebrations. The park is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Memorial through Labor Day and during the rest of the year when the park host is in attendance. Take Hwy 101 to Indianola Rd.; turn right toward Eureka; take a left at Three Corners to Freshwater/Kneeland and head right through Freshwater. The park is about 1/8 mile past Steele Ln. For more information on Freshwater Park, call the Humboldt County Parks Department at (707) 445-7651.

For a magnificent, memorable beach and riverside experience, head straight to Mad River County Park. See wildlife in its natural habitat along the shores of the Mad River, which spills into the Pacific Ocean. Spanning many miles, the Mad River starts in Trinity County and winds through Six Rivers National Forest. Matthews Dam, approximately one-third of the way along the river, forms Ruth Lake. The Mad River finally empties into the Pacific Ocean along the mile-long shore of a picturesque beach at the mouth, just north of Arcata. Harbor seals and sea lions can be seen sunbathing near the mouth of the river. Numerous birds scurry along the water’s edge or in the sky in search of a meal. A boat launch is available to fish or explore the waters of the beautiful Humboldt coast. You can build a fire at night on the sand, roast hot dogs and marshmallows or just keep warm at the beach while hanging out with good friends. Mad River County Park can be found by heading five miles northwest of Arcata, going west on Giuntoli Ln. and following the signs. For more information, call (707) 822-3619. co.humboldt.ca.us/portal/living/county_parks/default.asp?parkID=M

McKinleyville

Moonstone Beach, photo by Steve Hammons

I

n the 1860s, rancher Joe Dow established a community between the Mad and Little Rivers. In 1897, a post office and general store were built. In 1901, the residents of what was then known as Minorsville memorialized slain president William McKinley by adopting his name. From a population of 600 in 1940 to an estimated 13,000 today, McKinleyville offers a variety of lifestyles, from affordable apartments to ocean-view homes. McKinleyville is the fastest growing community in Humboldt County, but is proud that, in this town, horses still have the right of way. April and May are good months to view the Azalea State Reserve when the western azalea (Rhododendron occidentale) are in bloom. Trails wind through the fragrant plant life and informational markers describe various species. Take the Central Ave. exit off

Hwy 101 and travel east on North Bank Rd. to reach the reserve. During World War II, the Eureka-Arcata Airport, actually located in McKinleyville, was an important training facility for the study of fog dispersal methods. Today, the modern facility serves as the air gateway to Humboldt County as well as home base for the Coast Guard’s Air Rescue team. A comfortable restaurant and lounge at the airport serves travelers and locals in an elegant setting with views of the runway on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other. Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites is adjacent to the airport and offers everything the business or leisure traveler might need. For recreation, McKinleyville’s Clam Beach is a favorite spot for beachcombing, fishing and horseback riding. The Hammond Coastal Trail, a bicycle, equestrian and walking trail, travels south three-fourths of a mile from Clam Beach to Vista Point, where panoramic views of the ocean can be enjoyed. The trail continues through Hiller Park, over a bridge at Mad River and into the rural bottomland of Arcata. Clam Beach is the site of the annual Clam Beach Run, a popular event that attracts hundreds of runners. Held each February, the run originally began as a winter training race for Humboldt State Track and Field runners. Over the years it has evolved into a nationally-known run. The course starts in the town of Trinidad, 8.5 miles north, and ends at Clam Beach. The unique feature of the run is that the date and start time of the race are determined by the height of the tide on either the last Saturday of January or the first Saturday of February, since runners must cross the mouth of the Little River at Email, fax or postal mail with changes indicated andGuard we Rescue will send a revised proof.

Nothing expresses the beauty of Humboldt County quite like a trip to one of its amazing beaches. Enjoy a day of family fun at the seashore at Clam Beach, or challenge yourself to surf the waves at Moonstone Beach.

trails that crisscross the recreation area. The trails lead to the beach, the Mad River and the Hammond Trail, which runs through the regional park. Signs along the trails help the nature walker choose a course. Hiller Park and Sports Complex is at 795 Hiller Rd. Call McKinleyville Parks and Recreation at (707) 839-9003 for more information. www.mckinleyvillecsd.com/ hillersportscomplex.html

81 Moonstone Beach, photo by Denise Comiskey

Moonstone Beach is one of the most popular surfing spots in Humboldt County, and for good reason. In the summer, the ocean produces three- to five-foot swells, often going to 20 feet in the winter. A wide beach break provides ample room for a wide range of surfers to ride, and this stretch of ocean is great for beginners and seasoned surfers alike. But Moonstone Beach isn’t just for surfers; a wide, pristine beach, towering redwoods, sheer 100-foot cliffs and waves crashing against dozens of sea stacks make this a beautiful scenic spot for visitors. You may see whales, dolphins, seals, cormorants, pelicans and ospreys. Comb the beach for treasures, go fishing, climb the rocks, explore caves, ride a horse along the surf or play in the Little River where it enters the ocean. The view at this beach is considered one of the county’s most scenic. Moonstone Beach is located north of McKinleyville off Hwy 101 at the Westhaven exit. Clam Beach offers something for everyone. Keep your eyes open for a spectacular array of wildlife, or comb the shoreline for lovely stones, shells and driftwood strewn along the fine gray-sand beach. There are excellent clamming opportunities, and the onshore fishing is exceptional too; come out and cast a line to see for yourself. When the wind picks up, the broad, flat beach is perfect for kite flying. Clam Beach is located 7 ½ miles north of Arcata off Hwy 101 at the Clam Beach Park off-ramp. For more information, call (707) 445-7651. www.redwoods.info/showrecord.asp?id=2974

One of the best places to bike, hike, jog, or ride a horse in Humboldt County is the Hammond Coastal Trail. Part of the California Coastal Trail, it is more than five photo by Denise Comiskey miles long, stretching from Arcata north to Clam Beach County Park in McKinleyville. The trail lies along what was originally a railroad track built in the early 1900s for transporting redwood logs from the Little River area to the Hammond Lumber Mill on Samoa Spit. As a result of the railroad, the asphalt and crushed stone trail is quite level, which makes it an excellent place for several exercise options. A Times-Standard newspaper poll voted the trail the “best place to walk, jog or bike” in Humboldt County.

Light Up Your Life with Hand-blown Glass

Visit the Mirador Glass studio to watch these talented artists literally breathe life into their creations. Browse the gallery and enjoy the many beautiful creations that Mirador has to offer, or order a custom piece of your own. These oneof-a-kind lampshades are in demand from the designer galleries of New York to the specialty shops of California, but they’re created among the towering redwoods of Humboldt County. The glassblowers augment their art with decorative swirls, stripes and spots that turn glass into landscapes of desert sunsets, foggy seashores, gas giants and distant galaxies. A formula unique to Mirador Glass allows the artisans to create these warm tones and delicate patterns, and these unique features and beautiful results have created a desire for Mirador Glass shades in residential and commercial structures around the world. Mirador Glass is located in the Miller Business Park at 1590 Nursery Way in McKinleyville. For more information, call (707) 839-0909. www.miradorglass.com

Take a Walk or Toss a Ball at Hiller Park

Whether you’re a parent with kids, a nature-loving dog owner or just someone who enjoys a scenic walk, McKinleyville’s Hiller Park and Sports Complex is worth a visit. The 58-acre regional park has much to offer. The Sports Complex has two nicely maintained Little League fields, one Babe Ruth field and a softball field, so grab your mitt and toss a few with the kids. Or recruit a team and join the Coed Wood Bat Softball League. The league is held from early August through September. The park also has two youth soccer fields, and is soon to have two collegiate size soccer fields for match play at all levels. Then head over to the playground area, which consists of two separate age-specific areas. The tot lot is great for the littlest of park-goers, and older kids love to climb and slide on the bigger equipment. Adjacent to the park are plenty of tables, so bring a picnic and munch on sandwiches while the kids play. Dogs are not permitted in the play area, but are welcome on the network of loop 94 Humboldt County • www.101things.com

Hike or Bike the Hammond Coastal Trail

photo by Kristen Ramey

There are two distinct sections of the trail. The southern part is a 3-mile-long paved path stretching from the Mad River Bridge to Widow White Creek in McKinleyville, featuring amazing views of the Pacific Ocean and the Mad River. After traversing the historic Mad River Bridge and ascending a short but fairly steep hill, stop by Roger’s Market, a small but well-stocked store, which serves as a refreshment center for trail travelers, complete with a deli and Wi-Fi. The northern section of the trail is mostly paved and leads from North Letz Ave. to Clam Beach County Park. Along the trail, you will see spectacular vistas of the ocean and Trinidad Head, from sea level or the high bluffs. There are also plenty of places to access the beach. Find the Hammond Coastal Trail by taking the Hwy 101 Giuntoli Ln. exit two miles north of Arcata, then head west on Janes Rd. to Mad River Beach. Or, on the McKinleyville end, take the Murray or School Rd. exits. For more information, call (707) 445-7651. www.redwoods.info/showrecord.asp?id=1600

See the Blooms at the Azalea Reserve

If gardens are your interest, you’ll love Azalea State Nature Preserve, particularly in the spring when this 30-acre park is in full bloom. The beauty and scent of these multi-colored trumpet-shaped blossoms is intoxicating. Azaleas, a type of rhododendron, are often referred to as “the royalty of the garden.” The Western azalea, Rhododendron occidentale, thrives in Northern California. Azalea State Reserve offers hiking trails, as well as a picnic area. A short self-guided nature trail will teach you about azaleas and other plants of the North Coast area. To fully enjoy the beautiful Western azaleas, plan to visit in April or May when the blooms are at their peak. The reserve is located five miles north of Arcata off Hwy 101. Take the McKinleyville Central Ave. exit and drive two miles east on North Bank Rd. (Hwy 200) to a left turn into the reserve. There is no entrance fee, and the reserve is open from sunrise to sunset daily, year-round. www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=420

S

hrouded in mist or dazzling in sunshine, beautiful Trinidad Bay is a jewel on the coast, 19 miles north of Eureka. Its rocky shoreline is protected by Trinidad Head. The bay is the focal point for the small village of Trinidad. It’s a peaceful hideaway, perfect for a weekend or weekday stopover for fishing, beachcombing, hiking, kayaking or just relaxing. There are dozens of private campgrounds, RV parks, cabins, bed and breakfast inns and vacation rentals in the area, as well as some of California’s most beautiful state parks. The first inhabitants of Trinidad were the native Yurok Indians who fished the waters from dugout canoes. Yurok descendants are still active in the community today. In 1917 the Trinidad Rancheria was established on land adjacent to Trinidad, and today descendants of the Yurok, Tolowa and Weott tribes occupy the Rancheria. In 1775, the Spanish explorer Don Bruno de Heceta dropped anchor in this small harbor and erected a wooden cross on the headland. Since he landed on Trinity Sunday, he christened the place “La Santisima Trinidad.” In 1913, the wooden cross was replaced by one of granite. This cross can be reached by hiking the trail around Trinidad Head. Expansive views can be seen from Trinidad Head, including Pewetole Island and Elk Head. On clear days, you will be able to see as far as Patrick’s Point and Eureka. Modern Trinidad has a population of approximately 435 in its incorporated city. The harbor is home port to a small fleet of commercial fishermen, and there are smokehouses that sell locally-caught salmon and albacore. There are also shops displaying art, unique gifts, clothing, quilts and other surprises made by local artists and crafters. Charter boats are available at the Trinidad Pier for whale watching or fishing. Anglers can drop a line right off the pier. For those who bring their own boats, a marine railway will launch your vessels for a fee. Small crafts such as kayaks and motorboats can be launched right from the beach. Kayaking allows for a more up-close experience with nature and wildlife. Trinidad Cove, with its sheltered waters and stunning natural scenery, is a favorite among kayakers. The rocky coast offers views of seals, sea lions, dozens of bird species and the occasional gray whale. Other attractions include the Trinidad Museum, Humboldt State University’s Marine Laboratory, Sumeg Village, a Yurok Indian village at Patrick’s Point State Park, and the Trinidad Memorial Lighthouse which is wheelchair accessible. The lighthouse offers a panoramic view of the harbor. A trail leads from it down to Indian Beach. To see more of the Trinidad area, exit Hwy 101 and travel the coastal roads. The old Hwy 101 South is now called Scenic Dr. and offers spectacular views of the Humboldt County coastline. Just south of Trinidad on Scenic Dr. is Cher-Ae Heights Casino, situated on a high bluff overlooking Trinidad Head and Trinidad Bay. The casino offers not only gaming, but two restaurants and a lounge, including the Sunset Restaurant; voted the best fine dining and most romantic restaurant in Humboldt County. Excellent dining is also available at the Trinidad Bay Eatery and Gallery, a favorite among locals. The Eatery has a cozy café and hometown hospitality, and is located in the heart of Trinidad, just steps to the Memorial Lighthouse and Trinidad Bay. North of Trinidad, Hwy 101 presents the traveler with some of the most spectacular scenery in the Pacific Northwest. Among the sights are three lagoons: Big Lagoon, Stone Lagoon and Freshwater Lagoon. All are stocked annually with trout, salmon and steelhead. These lagoons are great places to explore by kayak, canoe or rowboat, or stroll along the water’s edge.

Enjoy the View from the Trinidad Lighthouse

Many people love to see the historical lighthouses that dot the coast of Northern California. The Trinidad Memorial Lighthouse is a shining example of these. This lighthouse is a replica of the original Trinidad Head Lighthouse still in use today. Both the original big fog bell and Fresnel lens stand on the site of the current park. They make a perfect addition to the little park overlooking the rocky coast below the town of Trinidad. The lighthouse memorial now stands as an everlasting monument to those lost at sea. After the memorial was established, the list of names of all the people lost at sea soon outgrew the small plaques. More plaques have since been affixed to the retaining walls.

Perhaps the best part of this lovely park and monument is the view. The rocks crop out of the foamy ocean, overlooking the many small fishing boats swaying in the breeze. Standing atop the beautiful cliffs with the salty sea breeze in your hair, you’re sure to remember this spectacular scene. To get to the park, take the short drive from Hwy 101 that winds through the tiny town of Trinidad. The town is nearly as picturesque as the view from the memorial. If you’re around at noon, you’ll be privileged to hear the fog bell toll in memory of lost sailors. The Trinidad Memorial Lighthouse is located to the left, off of Main St. on Trinity Ave. Please say you saw it in 101 Things To Do ®

Step Back in Time at Sumeg Village

86

Check out Trinidad State Beach

Today, members of the Yurok Tribe live in modern houses and have modern-day lifestyles. Many of the nearly 5,000 enrolled members of California’s largest Indian Tribe also work to preserve the traditions of their heritage. Sumeg Village is one place where local Yuroks share their culture with the public. “Sumeg” is the place name of an old Yurok seasonal fishing camp, which was located at Abalone Point on the ocean within what is now Patrick’s Point State Park. The Yurok came here during the summer to fish and harvest mussels, as well as catch sea lions and other game. The reconstructed Sumeg Village is a living example of a centuries-old Yurok village. Built by Yurok people using traditional materials, the village consists of traditional family style plank houses made of split redwood, an underground sweat house—much like a modern-day sauna—two redwood dugout canoes and a brush dance pit where ceremonial dances are performed. Adjacent to the village is a native plant garden, which has plants used by the Yuroks for medicinal and ceremonial purposes, as well as for weaving baskets and for food. You can tour the village for free daily, Memorial Day through Labor Day. Stop at courtesy of Patrick’s Point State Park the park’s Visitor Center for a schedule of special Yurok events, such as day-long dance ceremonies and the annual Sumeg Village Day, which celebrates the Yurok culture through traditional arts, crafts and storytelling. Patrick’s Point State Park, encompassing the Sumeg Village, is located six miles north of Trinidad, just west of Hwy 101 at the Patrick’s Point Dr. exit. For more information, call (707) 677-3570. www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=23577

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.

Have an Adventure in the Redwoods

Modern life can be stressful, with deadlines to meet, meals to prepare and dozens of things to do with no time to do them. Visit Redwood National and State Parks and all that worry will be washed away. Take your time and enjoy all that these lovely parks have to offer, with so much to do for every member of the family. Enjoy more than 50 miles of paved and unpaved biking trails of varying difficulty. If you have a horse, ride along the 41 miles of equestrian paths. There are also more than 160 miles of excellent hiking trails where adventurous backpackers like to walk. All of these paths will take you among the colorful wildflowers, grassy hills, wild oak woodlands and soaring redwoods that grow to 350 feet tall and live more than 2,000 years. Along the stretches of rugged coastline, see pounding surf, sea stacks and thrilling cliffs. Worldclass rivers can be found right outside the parks, which are perfect for rafting, kayaking and even fishing. If you visit in the spring, summer or fall, find out about the environmental education programs that take place at the two outdoor schools. Ranger-guided photo by Mackenzie Kincaid, www.redroanstudios.com programs are also available. Learn about the animals that call this place home. Some of these include the red-tailed hawk, kestrel, great horned owl, gopher, meadow mice, mountain lion, bobcat, coyote, fox, elk, black-tailed deer, goldfinch junco, quail and raven. The Redwood National and State Parks are located off Hwy 101, stretching from Trinidad in the south to Klamath Glen in the north. Several Visitor Centers are located throughout the parks near Crescent City, Hiouchi, Orick and along Newton B. Drury Scenic Pkwy. For more information, call (707) 464-6101. www.nps.gov/redw

Go on a Klamath River Jet Boat Tour

The Klamath River is known around the world as a beautiful, pristine river that runs from Altamont in Klamath County of Southern Oregon, dips into Humboldt County, and continues all the way to the Pacific Ocean near the town of Klamath in southern Del Norte County. Take pleasure in this picturesque river from the comfortable seat of a jet boat. Set out on a twohour trip from Klamath’s estuary called “Rekwoi,” which will take you up the river, powered by twin jets. The round-trip tour is more than 45 miles. The captain and narrator will tell you all about the Klamath River’s history, Native American culture and the area’s wildlife. From the boat, you may even get the chance to see some of these creatures, such as bears feasting on berries and fish from the shore, ospreys, hawks and eagles nesting, or black-tail deer and elk wandering through the trees. People of all ages photo by Gregg Gardiner will enjoy the sights. Every once in a while, you’ll have the opportunity to take some pictures. Tours are given between May and September, three times daily. It can be quite cool in the morning and evening, so you’ll want to wear layers that can be taken off when it warms up in the afternoon. Reservations are recommended, but drop-ins are welcome. Personalized and special group tours can be accommodated. The Jet Boat Tour office is located on Hwy 101, five miles south of Trees of Mystery, just over the border into Del Norte County. For more information, call (800) 887-JETS (5387). www.jetboattours.com

Stroll or Kayak Humboldt Lagoons State Park

Agate hunting, bird-watching, beachcombing, boating and whale watching are all popular outdoor activities for families along the West Coast. One of the best places to do all of these and more is at the Humboldt Lagoons State Park. In the early 1900s, Dry Lagoon was drained to make way for crops and dairy ranches. The effort proved uneconomical and, eventually, Mother Nature reclaimed this natural marshland habitat, which supports a huge variety of bird and animal life. Today, both Dry Lagoon and Stone Lagoon make up the state park, which includes six miles of beach, a hiking trail, boat ramp, picnic area and campsites. Many people come to the park to wander the beach, combing for agates and other treasures, as well as to watch migrating whales. You can bring your own boat to explore the lagoons or go fishing. There are also plenty of trails for the hiker, including three miles of Coastal Trail. Bring a picnic or pitch a tent at one of the 12 available campsites. The Humboldt Lagoons Visitor Center and bookstore are open daily from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. between June and September. Day-use hours are sunrise to sunset year-round. There is no fee. Camping is available for a fee on a first-come, first-served basis year-round. Humboldt Lagoons State Park is located 40 miles north of Eureka on Hwy 101.

Prairie Creek is a small drainage entering the Pacific Ocean near Orick. This unassuming waterway is the namesake of the 23-square-mile Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, a sanctuary of old-growth redwoods set aside in the early 1920s by the State of California and the Save-the-Redwoods League. With more than 280 Save-the-Redwoods League memorial groves, the park has been designated as a World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Reserve. The Newton B. Drury Scenic Pkwy. is the only paved route into the park. The busy Visitor Center, located at the southern end of the parkway and built next to Elk Prairie, is the starting point for several hiking trails, some of which follow Prairie Creek, with others traveling over hilly land to the ocean just three miles away. Find self-guided nature trails, as well as more than 75 miles of hiking and biking trails suitable for all-day hikes or short, leisurely strolls. While on a hike, you’ll come across many different photo by Denise Comiskey kinds of trees, such as Douglas fir, Sitka spruce and red alder, along with western azaleas and rhododendrons. You may also spot wildlife like Roosevelt elk, deer, coyotes, mountain lions, bobcats and foxes. More than 260 species of birds have been sighted within the park, making this one of the most popular bird-watching areas in the region. At Fern Canyon, walk along a small stream at the bottom of this narrow box canyon, where the walls are coated in vines and ferns. There are nearly 10 miles of beach for you to stroll along. You might even spot a migrating whale. The park hosts six campgrounds, as well as numerous picnic areas among the redwoods and on the beach. The Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park’s Visitor Center has many exhibits and a nature store, which can provide you with more information about the plants and animals that call this area home. The park is located 50 miles north of Eureka off Hwy 101 on Newton B. Drury Scenic Pkwy. For more information, call (707) 464-6101. www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=415

Fern Canyon is a spot in Humboldt County where you can take a leisurely stroll, leave everything else behind and enter a magical world. As its name suggests, this beautiful, natural wonder is a one-mile long box canyon, complete with a small stonebottom creek, where the walls, completely covered in ferns, tower 50 to 80 feet above. Over the ages, ���ve different varieties of ferns have grown on the canyon walls. Huge over-hanging trees grow at the top of the ridge, allowing streams of light to peak through the branches. Fallen trees along the bottom of the canyon can be climbed upon. When the filtered light combines with the iridescently green vegetation, the canyon takes on an unearthly hue. An easy hike back into the canyon will lead you to where the walls become less steep. Here, make your way up a trail that will take you to a ridge. From this vantage point, the green canyon below takes on a beauty rarely seen by many. Fern Canyon is located in the Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, 50 miles north of Eureka off Hwy 101 on Davison Rd. Drive through Elk Meadow and onto a scenic six-mile dirt road to Gold Bluffs Beach. Follow the beach for three miles to a parking lot.

Hwy 299 ~ Trinity

photo by Tracy McCormack

he inland mountain region of Humboldt County is rugged terrain dissected by wild rivers such as the Klamath, Trinity and Salmon. Access to the region is via Hwy 299 and Hwy 96. Traveling east from Arcata, travelers pass the hamlet of Blue Lake and the town of Willow Creek some 40 miles further.

Blue Lake

Bigfoot Rafting Co. Highway 299

Although the locals are used to it, many visitors to Blue Lake are surprised to find no lake. In the 1860s, the lake, for which the town is named, was created by receding floodwaters of the Mad River, and for 50 years gave the place a resort atmosphere. A hotel was built on the shore by an early Blue Lake settler. People from the foggy coast made the trek to Blue Lake to enjoy the lake, the river fishing and warmer temperatures of summer. Changes in the course of the river in the 1920s caused the lake to disappear, but fishing, sunshine and the rural charm still draw people to Blue Lake to live and play. Blue Lake Casino and Hotel, operated by the Blue Lake Rancheria Tribe, is a great place to find quality entertainment. Enjoy live music, slots and gaming tables as well as gourmet and family dining. You can also stay at their new hotel which they claim “raises the bar” for luxury accommodations on the North Coast. Since 1975, Blue Lake has been the home of the internationally known Dell’ Arte Players Company and the Dell’ Arte School of Physical Theatre. Dell’ Arte performs locally, regionally, nationally and abroad, and theater students from all over the world train at the school.

Sunshine, mountains, rivers and outdoor activities draw people to Willow Creek. Formerly a center for mining and logging operations, Willow Creek is now a center for summer recreation, retail business and is a thriving retirement community. The Trinity River is clear, clean, and beautiful. It’s perfect for swimming, rafting, tubing, kayaking, canoeing and fishing. There are many stretches, some with calm swimming holes and others with raging whitewater rapids. Local rafting companies offer guided whitewater trips for safe but thrilling rides, and the U.S. Forest Service can advise on quieter areas for wading and inner tubing.

Junction City

The gateway of the majestic Trinity Alps, this scenic roadside community retains the flavor of the Old West. There are no stop lights, or parking meters. However, for travelers, there is a road stop with a gas station, several shops and beautiful water views along the winding Hwy 299.

Weaverville

Highway 299 continues east into Trinity County and the county seat of Weaverville. Weaverville was an important hub for miners during the late 1800s and early 1900s, and still retains its Wild West feel. The town is nestled at the base of the Trinity Alps Wilderness Area, a 500,000 acre protected area that is host to many a backpacker, equestrian, bear and mountain lion. Today, Weaverville is a recreation hub, particularly for those who wish to explore the Trinity Alps and Marble Mountains. Weaverville’s historic downtown, with its old buildings, quaint shops and charming atmosphere, keeps locals and visitors busy with socializing, shopping and more.

Trinity County

Trinity County was established in 1850. The county took its name from the Trinity River, named in 1845 by Major Pearson B. Reading, who was under the mistaken impression that the stream emptied into Trinidad Bay. Trinity is the English version of Trinidad. Miners later discovered the river actually empties into the Klamath River. The Trinity River Basin has evolved from its early Gold Rush days to a new and vibrant arts and recreation area. Camping, kayaking, rafting, fishing and hiking are among the favorite activities of the area. Visitors can enjoy several activities by driving along Hwy 299 and checking out several campgrounds and turnouts along the way. Trinity County is what the locals call “God’s country” and once you have traveled and experienced the area, you’ll understand why. Please say you saw it in 101 Things To Do ®

Taking health care to new heights Much about health care has changed since the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange began serving the health care needs of our community in 1920. Yet our mission has remained the same for over 90 years: to continually improve the health and quality of life of people in the communities we serve. That’s why St. Joseph Hospital is building a threestory, state-of-the-art medical facility in Eureka. When finished in 2011, the new patient tower will allow us to provide you and your loved ones with the highest quality health care. The new tower will include: Lower Level: Emergency Department with 20 treatment bays; new reception and waiting area for patients and visitors; relocation of Central Sterile Department; Emergency Department Imaging with CT scan, radiology and ultrasound. First Floor: Surgical suite with eight operating rooms and a catheterization lab; 17 prep and recovery beds; 10 beds in the Post Anesthesia Care Unit; and a new main entrance, lobby and waiting area. Second Floor: 12 beds in the Intensive Care Unit; ICU waiting room and nurses’ station; 40 patient care beds.

here is no doubt about the difference in lifestyle when compared to other California locales. Humboldt County continues to be a popular relocation choice. People seem to visit for a couple of days and end up coming back to live permanently. It is not uncommon for visitors to Humboldt County to want to stay. Whether for retirement, recreation opportunities or just a different environment, most people settle here for a better quality of life. The county offers abundant natural beauty, mild weather, friendly towns and a minimum of traffic, crime and pollution. Due to its varied terrain, finding the right spot to settle in Humboldt County can take some study. Properties range from mountain ranches to city apartments, from remote acreage to oceanside cottages, all of it at prices a fraction of those in the San Francisco Bay Area, Silicon Valley, Sacramento or other urban areas in California. However, low interest rates created a lot of activity in the local real estate market and produced increases in prices from previous years, with many homes selling for well over $300,000. The median price of a single family home in Humboldt County in the first quarter of 2001 was $135,750. By 2008, the median price had risen to $303,500. Local real estate agents divide the county into six regions, which include South County, Mid County, South Bay, North Bay, Northwest County and Northeast County. Each has its own distinct personality and attributes. Southern Humboldt, also referred to as South County, is a rural, mountainous area blessed with clean air, a warm, sunny climate, towering redwoods, lush state parks, wilderness areas and rugged coastline. Most of its small communities are along Hwy 101 and the Avenue of the Giants, a scenic drive in Humboldt Redwoods State Park. South County has a Mediterranean climate with summertime temperatures in the 80s. Winters are wet but mild, with only occasional snow or frost. It is a great location for those who enjoy fishing and nature. The population of the whole region is only about 15,000. Properties include modest homes, country acreage, working ranches and seaside land. To the north in Mid County, the area is still mostly rural, but also includes the vibrant community of Fortuna and the nearby Victorian Village of Ferndale, both near Hwy 101. The eastern section of the region is mostly wild country along Hwy 36 and the Van Duzen River. Fortuna, however, is a rapidly growing town with new housing developments being added to its existing housing. Fortuna is generally sunnier than nearby Eureka or Ferndale, both of which experience coastal fog. The friendly community has an attractive municipal park, a riverside community center and a diverse commercial core. The entire town of Ferndale is a National Historic Landmark and will appeal to those who love Victorian buildings, pastoral countryside and small village ambiance. The South Bay section of the county is named for its proximity to Humboldt Bay and includes the most populous city, Eureka. With a population of over 28,000, Eureka has a wide spectrum of housing stock from modest bungalows to ornate refurbished Victorian mansions. Local real estate agents can describe the dozens of individual neighborhoods, school districts and microclimates of Eureka. The bay is a draw for sailors, kayakers and bird watchers. The college town of Arcata is in the North Bay region of the county along with McKinleyville, the county’s fastest growing community. Arcata has consistently higher real estate prices than the rest of the county due primarily to Humboldt State University. With an enrollment of approximately 7,500 students, rental properties are rarely vacant. Furthermore, geographical restrictions leave little room for new housing in the attractive city. Lots on the forested hills above town are slowly being developed and offer panoramic vistas of ocean, coastline and rivers. There has also been some development near the Arcata Bottoms, an agricultural greenbelt to the west of town. Arcata has a unique wildlife sanctuary on the bay as well as a central plaza that hosts numerous annual celebrations. McKinleyville, just seven miles north of Arcata, does have room to expand and it is here that one finds the largest numbers of new homes in the county. The community is striving to find the right balance between growth and its rural roots, but it is still a good place to find a reasonably priced new home. Just east of McKinleyville is Fieldbrook, where most homes are on large lots or acreage. Blue Lake is a small hamPlease say you saw it in 101 Things To Do ®

Adding to the value of homes here Authorized Signature is the close proximity of many parks and beaches. Trinidad State Beach, Patrick’s Point State Park, Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park and portions of Redwood National Park are all found in the North West County. North East County is a vast rural region that includes the Trinity and Klamath rivers, the Trinity Alps and the Hoopa Indian Reservation. It is a great area for fishermen, boaters and nature enthusiasts. Summer temperatures can reach the 90s and winters can be wet and stormy. The town of Willow Creek is situated along Hwy 299 and the town of Orleans is along Hwy 96. The most active months for home sales are July through September. In spite of recent price surges, buyers still get more home for their money in Humboldt County compared to many other parts of the state. For example, $350,000 can purchase a large, comfortable house in Humboldt County while the same amount of money in Southern California or the San Francisco Bay Area would purchase far less.Another popular option in Humboldt County is to purchase property and construct a custom home. Rural acreage and city lots are available at varying prices, depending upon location and size. Depending on the terrain type and location, large plots of land can be purchased anywhere from $600 to $2,500 an acre, while a nice lot in town with utilities nearby might run $80,000 to $150,000 depending on location. Experienced local architects and carpenters can help you design and build your dream house. More rural, country homes tend to command a higher price. Commercial real estate is an attractive option for some due to the area’s lower prices. Some people interested in a lifestyle change move to the area and rather than look for a job, consider buying an existing business. For others, their interest lies in investment properties such as apartment or home rentals. For those who prefer to rent, nice 3-bedroom, 2-bath homes can be rented for $1,200- $1,600 per month depending upon location. Monthly rents for two-bedroom apartments run from $600-$800, while two-bedroom rental houses generally run from $600-$1,000. The rental market is relatively tight, and nice properties are not on the Van Lines market long.

endocino County, Humboldt County’s neighbor to the south, is a mix of dramatic coastline, colorful vineyards and rolling hills. Two main arteries, coastal Hwy 1 and Hwy 101 inland, serve the county. The three northernmost towns in Mendocino County — Laytonville, Leggett and Piercy — are strung along Hwy 101 as it follows the Eel River into Humboldt County. Laytonville is situated 150 miles north of San Francisco. It was founded by a blacksmith named Layton and was a stagecoach stop on the route from San Francisco to Eureka. Two forks of the Eel River are close to Laytonville and provide excellent salmon, steelhead and trout fishing. Visitors may see such varied wildlife as deer, quails, raccoons and boars. Laytonville is set in the beautiful Long Valley, a level shelf 12-miles long and threemiles wide surrounded by wooded hills. The town has most of the services required by travelers, including restaurants, gas and motels. Approximately 25 miles north of Laytonville is the town of Leggett, located at the junction of Hwy 101 and Hwy 1. The former logging town attracts campers and travelers during the summer months and hordes of fishermen in the late fall when salmon swim upstream to spawn. The population of Leggett fluctuates from about 350 to 500, depending on the season. Summer temperatures can hover in the 80s and 90s, but the Eel River is always nearby for cooling off. Leggett’s Drive-Thru Tree Park features the Chandelier Tree as the centerpiece of See our Calendar for Events and Specials 200 acres of preserved virgin redwood forest. Nearby Standish-Hickey State Recreation Area offers camping, picnicking, hiking, fishing and swimming in the south fork of the Eel River. The park is one mile north of Leggett. The park’s three campgrounds contain AMILY RIENDLY Promotions are subject to change without prior notice. a total of 162 campsites. Amenities include wheelchair accessible restrooms with hot ESTAURANT showers. There are also hiking and biking campsites. Also in Leggett is The Peg House, the perfect pit-stop on the Hwy 101 journey. Here you will find a full service deli, espresso drinks, treats, groceries, gas and diesel. Or you can pick up travel books and maps at the area info booth. There is plenty of parking for autos and RVs as well. For more information, call (707) 925-6444. Piercy is the northernmost community in Mendocino County, and is situated right Promotions are subject to change without prior notice. Thank you & Good Luck! at the entrance to Richardson Grove State Park, one of the most popular of the area’s redwood parks. The park contains 1,500 acres and is next to the Eel River. On the Hwy 101 drive through northern Mendocino and into Humboldt County, be sure to stop at Confusion Hill, where seeing is believing—or not. And don’t miss the One Log House, or the Grandfather Tree, all worth some R&R time away from the car. Willits, the third largest town in Mendocino County, is located on Hwy 101 approximately 22 miles north of Ukiah. The town was called Willitsville in 1865 and the primary industry was lumber. Today, wood products are still important to the local economy.

City of Mendocino, photo by Gregg Gardiner

photo by Gregg Gardiner

Willits has a population of approximately 5,000 people and features excellent retail stores, restaurants, lodging and business and service establishments. Most of the businesses line Hwy 101, but a few can be found on quiet side streets. Nestled in the fertile Yokayo Valley between the Coast Range and Lake Mendocino along Hwy 101, Ukiah is the Mendocino County seat and its largest city. First settled in 1856, Ukiah began to grow in 1889 with the arrival of the railroad. Now the city’s population is approximately 15,500, and the greater Ukiah area has about 35,300 residents. Logging has always been a major industry in the area. During the Gold Rush Era when the booming city of San Francisco bought all the lumber it could get, Ukiah began to expand. The lumber rush enriched Ukiah, which has grown to become the financial, business, medical and service center for Mendocino, Lake, northern Sonoma and southern Humboldt counties. Ukiah is a blend of an historical community of the 1800s and a modern city. Part of Ukiah’s historical tradition are the descendants of the Pomo Indians, who still live and work in the area. In many Ukiah neighborhoods, beautifully restored Victorian homes are plentiful. Lake Mendocino is located five miles north of Ukiah, on Hwy 20 east of Hwy 101. There are two large boat ramps, and with a surface area of 1,822 acres, the lake is great place for wake boarding, water skiing or jet skiing. Fishing is a popular activity and the lake yields an abundance of bass, bluegill, crappie and catfish. There are several campgrounds around the lake, with over 300 campsites that offer camping for tents, trailers and motor homes. Although only a few blocks long, the town of Hopland packs a lot into its short length. Its attractions include a brew pub, a Victorian inn, an old-fashioned roadside café, several wineries, a fine gift shop, a cheesecake factory and a fresh bread bakery. There are six winery tasting rooms in town, and a few more just outside of town. Coastal Mendocino is cool, breezy and dotted with picturesque villages. In southern Mendocino are the towns of Gualala and Point Arena. Both towns have exceptional accommodations and restaurants for relaxed vacationing. The Point Arena Lighthouse is a favorite stop for southern Mendocino travelers. Further north, after passing through the tiny hamlets of Elk and Manchester, is the most populous and popular section of the Mendocino coast, from the town of Albion and Email with changes including the towns of Little River, Mendocino and or Fortfax Bragg.

The roads are mostly two-lane and offer incredible scenic views. Major rivers in the area include the Sacramento, Klamath, Trinity, Feather and McCloud.
