Redwood Coast Heritage Trails - (Page 1)
The five Redwood Coast Heritage Trails are self-guided tours,
each consisting of eight significant locations throughout the
Redwood Coast region. The trails include historic sites that still
reveal traces of the past, notable collections of historic and
cultural artifacts, and special places where our heritage is
honored and celebrated. Several locations, rich in heritage, are
to be found on more than one trail.
You can follow one trail at a time, visiting all eight locations in
order (most of the trails can be completed in a single day). Or,
jump from trail to trail to tour sites that are located close
together. Use this guide to find the sites, to help interpret what
you're seeing, and to better understand each site in its
historical and cultural context.
On the Redwood Coast and City of Eureka maps in this guide,
the five different trails are numbered and identified with their
special logos. The description for each location includes
directions, hours and other pertinent information.You will also
find supplementary information in this guide, including
resources for further research.
