Travel Information & Services
Turn to Us for Trinity Information
Trinity County is one of the larger counties in California. At 150 miles long by 100 miles wide with a lot of curvy mountain roads in between, getting from one end of the county to another can be an adventure in itself.
If you are not accustomed to driving on mountain roads, take your time and enjoy the view. Make sure you have plenty of gas since the distance between gas stations may be great.
The three main highways — 299, 3, and 36 — are well maintained and a pleasure to drive. If you are up for an added adventure you will find many smaller roads leading out into some of our smaller communities that can offer scenic pleasures, natural adventures, or surprising back road experiences.
