The bucolic seaside village of Trinidad, the second smallest incorporated community in the state, is one of the county’s premier destinations. This hike cobbles various trails, streets, and beaches together into a hike with considerable variety and incredible scenery. It will take you through forests and neighborhoods and to several cliff-top vistas of the town, the coast, and offshore islands. Be prepared for strong winds on the headlands. The beaches may be impassable at high tide.
