Fishermen find this area a delight. You can walk 50 yards through our meadow lawn to Coffee Creek and catch native rainbow trout, or downstream from us, planters in the Trinity River. Trinity Lake, just ten minutes south, still holds the state record for small mouth bass. There you'll also find large rainbow, German Browns, Kokanee and Coho salmon, large mouth bass, and catfish (find out current stream fishing conditions). Two nearby marinas rent patio and fishing boats, and there is a boat launch in nearby Trinity Center.
For hikers, there are numerous alpine lakes throughout the area where you can catch Brookies, Eagle Lake trout or just spend a leisurely afternoon enjoying nature at her best. Dozens of wilderness hikes offer varying degrees of difficulty. Winter snows provide hundreds of miles of natural trails for cross country skiing and snowmobiling.
If you like wine tasting, we think you’ll enjoy a visit to our local Alpen Cellars Winery and their gold medal wines.
From Memorial Day weekend until there are more boulders than water in late June, two licensed outfitters in Trinity County offer professionally guided rafting tours down Coffee Creek. These trips stage and finish just a mile north of us on Coffee Creek. For reservations and further information, please contact these folks directly:
