Beautiful and remote scenery awaits on the Butler Valley loop. A local favorite with "only" 50ish miles this ride has plenty of elevation and some rougher roads making it a great adventure ride! 

Riding the Bay Trail

Eureka Waterfront Trail

A fun, smooth, and flat ride along Eureka's waterfront and through historic old town, the Waterfront Trail is a great way to get out and feel the fresh sea air. Enjoy watching the harbor seals and other wildlife as you pedal along Humboldt Bay.

The Hammond Trail

Hammond Coastal Trail

The Hammond Trail runs from the picturesque Arcata farmlands north to Clam Beach. with beautiful views to the ocean and minimal interactions with four-wheeled traffic this is a great family fun ride. 

 "...riding through trees, feeling as if I was riding on a set of Jurassic park," 

A customer's testimonial to Humboldt's great riding: "A quote from my friend Don who rented one of your Santa Cruz bikes over the weekend: I was treated to three venues each with their own personality which included riding through trees, feeling as if I was riding on a set of Jurassic park, mud, flowy trails, and the final capstone day which blew my mind. Blue Lake riding is world class and growing as the bike club develops the private mountain park. Mountain biking, Micro Breweries, fun new friends, horseshoes, great food makes for a great weekend"
