A leisurely jaunt through second-growth redwood forest along gravel and dirt tracks, just a stone’s throw from the quirky college town of Arcata. Plenty of clearings and small meadows provide contrast to the deep shadows of the forest, and numerous connecting trails are available to customize the hike.
Tucked up against the progressive little college town of Arcata is a jumble of densely forested hills that represent an ongoing experiment in modern silviculture. Dedicated in 1955, the Arcata Community Forest was originally acquired by the city as a source of drinking water, which was collected by building small reservoirs on the creeks flowing through the forest.
