You will feel like you stepped back in time when you visit this sleepy rural village. It's so quiet here you can hear the fish jumping in the big river. The lush landscape reminds you that you are definitely in Northern California. Fishing, camping,'s all right here. Wilderness regions of Trinity Alps are right next door!

  • description:
    Spectacular in spring and summer. Wet season is autumn thru early spring. Dense forest with large river & reservoirs nearby. Rural, retirees, ranches, residential. Trinity River fishing. Fly fisherman's paradise.

    Minimal services in town. Market, post office, the very basics. Weaverville is to the west and Redding is due east, so that would be the nearest real shopping centers.

    nearby towns:
    Trinity Center
    Douglas City

    Trinity County is mostly forests
