The Trinity River's headwaters begin in the rugged Trinity Alps, making its way through the wilderness, settling into deep valleys, transitioning to spacious glides and inviting beaches until finally meeting up with the mighty Klamath River at Weitchpec. Its natural beauty helps make this one of the most popular sights for north coast river recreation. Scenic Highway 299 provides easy access to many points of interest. In the warm spring and summer months, inner tubers and rafters enjoy rides along the river. The river is legendary for its salmon and steelhead fishing opportunities. Access provides fishing opportunities by means of drift boat or walk-in riverside spots.
