Trinidad
Humboldt County California


Trinidad is a charming village, high on the bluffs and sheltered behind Trinidad Head. It is noted for its picturesque memorial lighthouse (replica of the original around the far side of the head), dramatic coastal views, fishing boat harbor, seafood restaurants, marine research station, and beach.

The 2000 census showed that Trinidad had a population of only 311, making it the smallest incorporated city in California.
