About


Introduction:

Located only 17 miles north of Humboldt Bay and the Eureka area, Trinidad Head juts out from the town of Trinidad toward the west with a top elevation of more than 350 feet. The lighthouse here casts a white beam out over the Pacific Ocean some 196 feet above the water’s surface.

History:

As Trinidad became an important port for the transport of timber, the high bluffs of Trinidad head were chosen as the site for a lighthouse serving the harbor in 1871. The original 25-foot-high brick tower was lit in December of that year. The original Fresnel lens was replaced with a modern optical light in 1947, and today the light is automated.

Navigating in and Around the Lighthouse:

Characteristics: Occulting white light (four seconds) with a focal plane 196 feet above the water. Horn during periods of reduced visibility.
