Trinidad Head
Trinidad, Humboldt County, California

Bold Trinidad Head provides a landmark for mariners along the north coast, as well as sheltering a tiny harbor. It was first named by Spanish explorer Bodega Y Quadra in 1775.

A trail encircles the promontory, affording views of the coast as well as a glimpse of the historic original lighthouse. It was here, in 1913, that a giant "rogue" wave swept over 103-foot tall Pilot Rock, then hit the ligthhouse 193 feet above sea level, breaking windows and disrupting the beacon.
