Sights and Attractions

USFS Hunting Information...

Great things come in small packages. North Trinity Lake is packed with endless activities for those of you who want to be outdoors, instead of behind your 9-5 desk.

Come up and share the smell of pine trees, cool summer evenings, a night sky where you can really see the Milky Way, and four seasons of change. And most of all, give yourself a break--take the opportunity to slow down and just enjoy life.

Scott Museum

The Scott Family established this small museum in Trinity Center to preserve the history of the mining, timber, and ranching activities that defined something that we still feel today-- the soul of our North Lake communities.

Water Sports

Nothing establishes life-long memories more than time spent on the water. And, Trinity Lake is the place to build memories. Be a kid, discover Trinity Lake.
