Old Lewiston Bridge RV Resort


Recreational Opportunities Trinity County is rich in physical points of interest. Reminders of the 49'er days - pioneer homes, remnants of gold towns, hotels, stage stops, ruins of gold processing plants, flumes, ditches, tunnels, and hydraulic washes - are scattered in profusion throughout the country. The points of interest include Trinity Dam and Lake, Lewiston Fish Hatchery (the world's most automated salmon and steelhead hatchery), Lewiston Lake (where excellent drift fishing is found in upper channels of lunker rainbows and brown trout), J.J. Jackson Memorial Museum, the Joss House (Chinese worship temple), LaGrange Mine (an entire mountain washed away by hydraulic giants), washmills, the Natural Bridge, and the Scott Museum in Trinity Center where there is a large collection of gold mining relics and antiques. Trinity Lake Trinity Lake is the third largest lake in California. With 16,000 surface acres and 145 miles of shoreline it is uncrowded even during summer peak months. The lake's irregular shoreline creates three separate arms with many secluded tree-lined coves that are perfect for anglers and houseboaters. Water skiers find the "glassy" water excellent. Anglers will enjoy fishing Trinity Lake for trophy-size large-mouth bass, rainbow and German Brown trout, Kokanee salmon and catfish. It also holds the California State record for smallmouth bass.

Mountain Biking And Cycling Mountain bikers enjoy miles of abandoned logging roads and fire trails throughout the county. Forest Service maps list all known roads in and around Trinity County. Cyclists are discovering uncrowded, scenic back roads and touring beautiful loops and adventure trails and a variety of paved roads. The LaGrange Classic, a NORBA sanctioned mountain race, is held in Weaverville the first weekend of June. Cross Country Skiing Roads and trails in the high elevations of the Trinity Alps offer untracked skiing for cross country skiers who don't mind ungroomed snow. The most poplar are Scott Mountain, Coffee Creek Road, Weaver Bally and Hayfork Mountain. Forest Service maps will aid in locating trails. Horseback Packing And Riding Several experienced outfitters pack into the wilderness of the Trinity Alps. You can bring your own horses into selected ride trails. Various stables are available at some trailheads and private campgrounds. The incredible beauty of riding through the Alps is one recommended "must do" while in Trinity County. Water Skiing Some of the warmest, calmest water is available for the beginner and advanced water skier. Water temperatures are in the 80's. A competitive course can be found at times set up by local water ski clubs. "Glass" can be found on Trinity Lake at all times in one of the many sheltered coves.
