  • The views were great, and being above 4,000 ft. meant no Poison Oak! The weather was warm in the afternoons.  more »
  • Nothing like the views you will love the small town feel and beauty all around you. Nature trails all around. Great exercise and great relaxing peaceful place.  more »
  • Views of the mountains are wonderful. Many places for drives, hikes, etc. There's not much for us to dislike in Trinity County!!  more »
