Trinity County is a county located in the northwestern portion of the U.S. state of California. As of the 2010 census, the population was 13,786,[2] making it the fourth-least populous county in California. The county seat and largest community is Weaverville.[3]

Trinity County is rugged, mountainous, heavily forested, and lies along the Trinity River within the Salmon/Klamath Mountains. The county has one traffic light, no freeways, parking meters, or incorporated cities. It did not have a chain store or restaurant until 1999, when Burger King, Movie Gallery (closed), Longs Drugs (now CVS/pharmacy), and Subway opened for business.

Weaverville, the county seat, has the distinction of housing some of California's oldest buildings. The courthouse, built in 1856, is the second oldest in the state, and the Weaverville Drug Store has been filling prescriptions since 1852. The Joss House is an historic Taoist temple built in 1873.

History[edit]

The county takes its name from the Trinity River, named in 1845 by Major Pierson B. Reading, who was under the mistaken impression that the river emptied into Trinidad Bay. Trinity is the English translation of Trinidad.

Trinity County was one of the original counties of California, created in 1850 at the time of statehood. Parts of the county were given to Klamath County in 1852 and to Humboldt County in 1853.

Geography[edit]

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 3,208 square miles (8,310 km2), of which 3,179 square miles (8,230 km2) is land and 28 square miles (73 km2) (0.9%) is water.[4] The county contains a significant portion of Shasta-Trinity National Forest, home to the Trinity Alps. The county hosts many visitors, especially during summer months, for camping, backpacking, and fishing. The summers tend to be clear, sunny, warm, and very dry, with little rain from June to September except for some mountain thunderstorms in the highest elevations. The winters tend to have copious precipitation, falling mostly as rain under 1000m/3300 ft in the valley bottoms, and mostly as snow over 1000m/3300 ft on the mountainsides. December, January, and February are the wettest. There is an extensive wild river and stream system, and the terrain is quite rugged and forested, with the highest points at around 9,000 ft (2,700 m). The Klamath Mountains occupy the vast portion of the county.

Trinity was a Republican-leaning county in Presidential and congressional elections until recently, now it is a tossup. In the 2008 Presidential Elections and in the last two consecutive congressional elections (2008, 2010) it has voted Democratic. However in 2012 it narrowly voted Republican. Voter registration also reflects this trend with Democratic and Republican registration in a near dead heat (D - 2,710, R - 2,716). Before 2008, the last Democrat to win in the county was Jimmy Carter in 1976. It was the only county in California to vote for independent candidate Ross Perot in 1992. However, in 2008, Democrat Barack Obama defeated Republican candidate John McCain 51% to 46%.

Trinity County is in California's 2nd congressional district, represented by Democrat Jared Huffman.[5]

In the state legislature Trinity is in the 4th Senate District, represented by Republican Jim Nielsen,[6] and the 2nd Assembly District, represented by Democrat Wesley Chesbro.[7]

On November 2, 2010 Trinity county voted against Proposition 19 which would have taxed and regulated marijuana. This activity is currently illegal under both state and federal law, with the parameters of California's Proposition 215 giving medical marijuana producers and users only a legal defense against prosecution.
