About Houda Point Beach in Trinidad, California

Houda Point Beach is a photogenic spot a couple miles south of Trinidad. A short hiking trail leads from the parking area out to the top of Houda Point. Offshore is a large rock nicknamed Camel Rock because it looks like a two-humped camel from some angles. The official USGS name of the island is Little River Rock, but Camel Rock is the name on park signs. North of the point is Houda Point Beach with another large rock, but this one is covered in vegetation instead of bird droppings. The waves wrap around this rock which is reachable at low tides. A third large rock is visible in the distance (Pilot Rock) and Trinidad Head is visible to the north except when fog fills the bay. Below the point to the south is Houda Cove which has a small beach with rock and driftwood at the back. To get to Houda Point Park, drive south from Trinidad on Scenic Drive and look for a parking strip along the road a short distance past Luffenholtz Beach Park. The point on Houda Head is straight ahead and the beach is below the parking area is to the right.
