  • Nice place with good views. There is some renovation going on around the lighthouse so some walkways are cordoned off. On a clear it is great place to sit and gaze at the sea.
  • Love seeing the replica. The real one which is on the rock is beautiful to see. Ive seen it from the top of the rock, from ocean view and up close and personal when it opens for Fish fest (usually held on fathers day).
  • Nice view. We took the Trinidad trail as well, which is a small hike that goes over the hills. Excellent breathtaking view.
  • 7/12/13 I love memorials. I enjoy stopping for moments of silence to think about the lives of others that have been lost. The Soldier's Memorial of Pleasant Hill honors WWI veterans. Walnut Creek has Veteran's Memorial Plaza. And Lafayette has a hill of crosses honoring men and women killed in Iraq. This Lighthouse Memorial in Trinidad celebrates the lives of those lost at sea. The memorial sits atop a hillside overlooking a great span of the beautiful Northern CA coast and ocean. There is a bench and a small area to walk around. Lots of beautiful flowers were in bloom but it was hard to take our eyes off the view! A list of names on the wall includes the people lost at sea both recently and many, many years ago. I read over the names and thought about the people; wondering about the moments before they went missing. Was it a giant storm rocking their boats until they capsized? Or an accidentally falling overboard and vanishing. Or maybe someone swimming away in hopes of being "lost", like Julia Roberts in Sleeping With The Enemy (though, she was eventually found). Great movie. Great memorial.
  • Our local memorial spot...the Trinidad Ladies Civics Club takes pride in it's up keep..landscapes and views r outstanding and historical aspects are worth checking out..
