Trinity River rages along rural Highway 3, into Trinity Lake in Northern California. The 8000' peaks of Trinity Wilderness sit to the West of Trinity Alps, then river, lake and more mountains to the East. Water flows wild here & flows hard. The huge reservoir has a red dirt shoreline, recreational boating and camping. This lake is subject to low lake levels. Big pines & impressive waterfalls. Lotsa rainy daze & rainbows. Summer can be gorgeous, but hot at times.
