Or lay low under the canopy of Humboldt Redwoods State Park, Redwood National Park, Prairie Creek State Park, or Six Rivers National Forest. The list goes on!

Camping will be allowed during the event and is sure to be a good time. Camping options will be available Friday and Saturday night so none of the action will be missed.

Attractions

Be sure to check out the many cultural attractions during your visit. Stroll through streets and alleys of Old Town Eureka, once home to rough and tough fisherman and loggers. Experience the town of Arcata, home of Humboldt State University, with plenty of charm in and around the plaza. Walk the streets of the charming Victorian village of Ferndale, visiting one of their many galleries or blacksmith shops. Visit the community of Blue Lake, the closest town to the race venue, and step back in time to a logging legacy. There are also plenty of opportunities to spot wildlife at the various marshes, wetlands, lagoons, and refuges.
