Hikshari Trail Description

The Hikshari Trail winds through the Elk River Access Area in the northern California city of Eureka. As it follows the river, you'll enjoy views of the water, coastal willows and sand dunes. Many trailside benches are available to take it all in. Along the way, be sure to stop at the interpretive signs to learn about the surrounding habitats and history of the area.

From the northern trailhead, restaurants and shops are a short distance away in Bayshore Mall.

Parking and Trail Access

The primary parking lot is on the northern end of the trail at the foot of Truesdale Avenue, just south of Bayshore Mall. Farther south, Hilfiker Lane has two parking lots that offer access to the trail. Another parking lot is available at the south end of the trail at Pound Road.

Hikshari Trail Reviews

This is a wonderful trail ! Next to the northern trailhead is a restaurant, and other retail in just walking distance. The trail itself is very peaceful with wonderful views of waterways. Many artistic benches are along the trail, as well as numerous bike racks for locking your bike. Some areas of the trail are shaded with trees, and other areas are more open. Lots of folks enjoying the trail from children to adults. I like the informative signs along the trail educating users about the history, and ecosystem! A must visit trail in Eureka!
