Arcata Community Forest Loop is a 4.1 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Arcata, California that features a great forest setting and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from April until October. Dogs and horses are also able to use this trail.
Lots of different activities for the whole family. Trails of different lengths for walking, running, biking, and even horseback riding. Dog poop bags and trashcans are located at certain trail entrances for convenience. It is backed up next to a park with a playground, rental buildings, restrooms, and picnic tables all on a very spacious area where movies are played for the community during the summer time.
Like an enchanted forest!
Trail is an easy walk in the woods however the locals like to use it as a place to smoke marijuana which ruins the hike and fresh air.
Nice & easy. Surrounded by beautiful tall redwood trees & ferns. Relaxing.. Benches near little streams. My pug walked the entire loop!
I have been to this trail twice and it is just a beautiful trail....we stayed on #8 all around. I took my family there the second time around and hiked the whole trail and they loved it....even our dog Buddy was enjoying it
