Arcata in the News
The City sends out a big thank you to the 22 volunteers who built 250 feet of new trail and decommissioned 80 feet of old trail in the Sunny Brae Tract of the Arcata Community Forest this past Saturday. The new section of the Beith Creek Loop Trail was constructed to bypass a steep, fall line section of trail. Kudos to the Humboldt Trails Council's Volunteer Trail Stewards for their dedication to improving everyone's trail experience!
