The Arcata Community Forest is a natural area accessible all year round. Spanning over 793 acres, the forest was dedicated to the public in 1955. The forestland was used as a source for the municipal water supply until 1964, and today the forest serves as the headwaters of many of Arcata's urban streams. There are 19 trails along which to explore the beautiful trees and scenery while biking, running, hiking, dog walking, horseback riding, or playing disk golf. Along with recreation, the forest also provides educational opportunities, wildlife habitat, and sustainable timber harvesting.
Dogs must be kept on leash.
