The Weaverville Basin Trail Project began in 1986 with the completion of the Weaverville Community Plan, a document adopted by the County of Trinity to guide the future development of Weaverville, a historic gold rush town nestled in the mountains of north-west California.

Trail Work Volunteers The Weaverville Basin Trail Committee was formed in 1988 to develop a plan to preserve Weaverville’s trails. This committee is made up of representatives from various trail user groups, the U.S. Forest Service, BLM, Trinity County Historical Society, County of Trinity, Weaverville/Douglas City Parks and Recreation District, groups such as the Mountain Bike Club, the Running Club and Trinity Riders, as well as interested citizens at large.

Since its inception the project has grown in scope and size. The system will eventually circumnavigate Weaverville with over 50 miles of trail through biologically diverse terrain, offering many opportunities to interpret historic mining sites, riparian zones, wetlands, old growth forests and timber harvest sites.
