Humboldt County is on the north coast of California, about 200 miles (four hours) north of San Francisco and 50 miles from the Oregon border. The county seat is the City of Eureka on Humboldt Bay, around which most of the county’s small population resides. Humboldt is best known for its magnificent coastal redwoods, the tallest trees in the world, and two of its major attractions are Redwood National & State Parks, and Humboldt Redwoods State Park along the Avenue of the Giants. But the county also includes dozens of other parks, forests, beaches and preserves, making it a paradise for every kind of outdoor recreation. Many small towns including Eureka, Victorian Ferndale and coastal Trinidad offer the visitor fine dining, accommodations, arts and entertainment.
