Trinidad Head Memorial (Trinidad, CA)


Trinidad Head Memorial

A replica of the Trinidad Head lighthouse sits on a bluff overlooking the sea. It is really a memorial to those lost at sea, whose names are on plaques along a concrete wall nearby. The lighthouse itself still is perched on the headland, not accessible to the general public. The fog bell that was originally used with the lighthouse now sits next to the memorial and the original Fresnel lens is housed inside. A trail leads down to the beach where you can wander around and get a closer look at the basalt outcroppings out at sea.
