if humans scare you, stay in your home. if not, there are a few miles of paved trail along the bay. sunsets are wonderful all along it.

Great trail. Love starting from the south end and heading north. Great place to do some birding. I also like hiking across the trestle and west to the bay.

View isn’t terrible, but still lots of homeless. They don’t seem to be bothersome, but be aware of your surroundings. Doesn’t smell very good either.

Great trail on Humboldt Bay. We walk it 2 or 3 times a week and it is always a joy especially at sunset. We usually start at the trail head at the Herrick Ave. park and ride lot. Paved path is nice but the trails that follow the Elk River offer a more scenic view with lots of birds. We often see birders, bikes, dog walkers and families on the trail. Haven’t seen a homeless camp in several years. The Trail Stewards do a wonderful job of maintaining the trail and the Eureka Police patrol the trail on an ATV. We always feel safe even in the evening. The hike out over the RR trestle to Stinky Beach is wonderful.

Should call this one the Homeless Trail. Almost didn't do it because I wasn't confident my car would be ok. An asphalt bike trail I wouldn't advise anyone to do.

A nice meandering walk. You need to be aware of your surroundings as there are still some lingering homeless camps.

I take my dog on this trail often. We call it "stinky beach"- used to have a rendering plant right next to where the trail runs. I don't know why this site thinks the trail is 51.2 miles. IT'S NOT. Great view of the two spits at the bay entrance. This year was the first year that the Kinetic Grand Championship race ran through here. if you park at the Park and Ride at the Herrick Ave exit you can watch the show.And the beach is right there too!
