This is an attraction that is located in town for the benefit of all the tourists. It is near-perfect reproduction of the Trinidad Head Light and actually houses the old Head's Fresnel lens. Hiking trails lead to the original Trinidad Head light, but from what I have heard, it's quite a hike.


Directions: From Highway 101 in Eureka, exit at Westhaven Drive and follow it west. The name will change to Main Street. Follow Main Street to the end, and make a left onto Trinity Street. Follow Trinity Street to the end. You will see the lighthouse right in front of you.
