About Humboldt County

How to Beat a Humboldt County Traffic Ticket

Humboldt County is located in Northwest California and bound by Del Norte County on the north, Mendocino County on the south, the Siskiyou and Trinity counties on the east, and the Pacific Ocean on the west. Long before the formation of the county in 1853, the area was inhabited by the Wiyot, Yurok, Hupa, Karuk, Chilula, Whilkut, and Eel River Athapaskan peoples. The first recorded entry of Humboldt Bay by non-natives was an 1806 visit from a Russian American Company sea otter hunting party. The area was not visited again until 1849 by Josiah Gregg’s party. Humboldt County is named in honor of the great naturalist and world explorer, Alexander von Humboldt.

The county spans a total of 4,052 square miles, roughly 80 percent of which are national forests and parks. The area contains a diversity of plant and animal species, most notably an extensive amount of redwood forests. Over 136,000 people call Humboldt county home, including those living on one of the eight Native American reservations, only four other counties (San Diego, CA; Sandoval, NM; Riverside, CA; and Mendocino, CA) have more reservations within their county lines. The largest of the Humboldt County reservations remains the Hoopa Valley Indian Reservation.

The most populous city of Humboldt County is Eureka, site of the College of the Redwoods main campus. Humboldt State University is located in the smaller town of Arcata, both Arcata and Eureka are located near Humboldt Bay, California’s second largest natural bay. Whether you enjoy scenic drives or hiking trails, there are plenty of choices in Redwood National and State Parks in the northern part of the county, or along the “Avenue of the Giants” and “Humboldt Redwoods State Park” in the southern region. Humboldt County is a great place for nature lovers to enjoy fishing, kayaking, biking, rafting, or bird watching.
