  • I was here on a sunny weekend so it was quite a busy spot. I found the trail (nature loop) a bit of a challenge, with some pretty steep spots. Overall, it was beautiful though. This is not old growth ...  more »
  • I have lived here all my life. After I retired I have had time to explore our area. I have an app on my phone, MAPLETS. You can down load the app and get maps of parks. I was shocked to see how large ...  more »
  • This forest is beautiful and it’s easy to spend an entire day here. At times there are some crazy hobos wandering around but they’re harmless.  more »

  • The most beautiful place in Arcata. There are miles of maintained trails throughout the Arcata Community Forest with multiple access points. It is a great place to walk, hike, run, mountain bike or ride horses. While walking the trails you will be transported into another world and quickly forget you are still in the city. The city has a trail map online which can be downloaded into a free app so you can find your location via GPS on your cell phone. If you are not familiar with the trails, I would not go to far into the trails without a map. Your cell phone will work in the forest, but the forest is too dense to see any of the trails on a satellite map. Have fun!
  • We like to take the kids hiking here. They have well marked trails. I like printing a trail map and having my oldest son navigate using the map and trail markers. Only down side is the playground at the #1 trail head is frequently occupied by interesting people and not a ton of families so I feel like I have to keep a close watch on the kids while they play there.
  • Great convenient place to hike. Great trails. Very picturesque. Dog friendly.
  • This is my favorite place to go alone, with family, and/or with friends. There are so many trails fit for everyone. There is also a park and a basketball court for those looking to excersice or just simply play in the redwood forest.
  • Right next to Humboldt University, a beautiful walk through the woods.
