Another significant milestone in the long-gestating Humboldt Bay Trail will take place this Sunday at 10 a.m. on Arcata’s South I Street during a ceremony celebrating the completion of the three mile-long, paved, ADA-accessible Arcata section. (More details in the City of Arcata release below.) 

But before you revel in Humboldt getting awesomer Sunday, take a gander at the slick video above which discusses the Humboldt Bay Trail’s history, present and future (but is mostly an excuse to scope pretty footage of fauna you might scope should you take a stroll on your new trail).

From the City of Arcata:



Come join us for the opening of the newest extension of the Humboldt Bay Trail and be one of the very first to experience the trail!

The much awaited ribbon cutting ceremony for the Arcata section of the Humboldt Bay Trail will take place at 10 a.m. on Sunday, November 19th at South I Street, Arcata California.

The project involved construction of approximately 3.0 miles of a Class I, ADA accessible, non-motorized multi-use trail, that runs from the terminus of the Arcata Rails with Trail at State Route 255, through the Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary. The trail continues south along the North Coast Railroad Authority’s railroad to the south of Bayside Cutoff along Humboldt Bay.

The project was funded by Caltrans Active Transportation Program (ATP) cycle 1, Caltrans SHOPP Minor Funds, California Coastal Conservancy, and Arcata’s Measure G Streets Fund.

Come ride, roll, run, and walk on this newly constructed multi-use trail!

Updates on ribbon cutting ceremony will be posted on the City’s website,
