Hiking Humboldt

Freshwater Farms Reserve

Interpretive sign at Freshwater Farms Reserve.

We live in Freshwater, so it is just about the perfect hiking destination for our family–but whether you live in Arcata or Eureka Freshwater Farms Reserve is worth a short drive to enjoy the splendors of Humboldt Bay’s tidal marshland. The trail is .75 miles one-way, and flat. Making it the perfect hike for all ages. Birding is excellent due, in part, to the trees that line the trail–many of which are conifers!
