The main Trinity River, is the largest tributary of the Klamath, but it is a mighty river of its own. The Trinity River’s best white water stretches are downstream of the North Fork Trinity confluence. Historic gold mining remnants are left behind, and the scenery is more lush and green as the river flows through the Shasta-Trinity National Forest.
The wildlife and scenery are excellent along the Trinity River or “Hoopa”, as it is called by the local Hoopa tribe. The silent river runner can often sight deer, hawks, eagles, osprey, herons, kingfishers, and the occasional bear, mink or otter.
The area has a rich gold mining history. In 1851, nearly 10,000 miners were working the Trinity River and its side creeks. The total population of California at this time was roughly 50,000 people. Legend has it that many Chinese miners lost their lives in a land slide near the “China Slide” take-out.
