The Trinity Alps, 20 miles/32 km north of Weaverville in Shasta-Trinity National Forest, are America’s Alps.  Alpine peaks surround blue Trinity Lake, reminiscent of Switzerland’s Lake Geneva.  Created in 1961 by the damming of the Trinity River, Trinity Lake is a popular destination for boating, fishing for smallmouth bass, Kokanee salmon, and catfish, houseboating, swimming, hiking and wildlife viewing. What is unusual about Trinity Lake is that it is so lightly visited.  You might call it Switzerland without all the people.  Some campsites are available only by boat, making seclusion part of the Trinity Alps experience.
