Hayfork, CA

Hayfork, the best kept secret in California, is the southern most town on Highway #3. It has a population of 2,453 and an elevation of 2350' Its inland locale helps make four distinct seasons. A typical winter has average lows around 25 degrees and average highs around 80 degrees. Start planting underground in April and above grounds in May.  Expect the first frost sometime late part of September.  There is generally no rain from June thru September.

The town has many churches including: Seventh Day Adventist, Mormon, Solid Rock, Assembly of God, Catholic, Jehovah's Witness, and a Community church.  We have our own school district which includes Hayfork, Hyampom and Wildwood.  There is a high school of 130 students, an alternative school with 12 students and an elementary with 300 (preschool-8). The businesses in town draw on a population of about 5000.

The Water District has about 650 customers.  A new sewer system is now  completed.  Hayfork is part of the Trinity County Public Utilities District in which Trinity County has its own electric source which is the least expensive in the State and has never had a brown-out or shut down due to shortage.  In fact there is a surplus of power of some 15-20 megawatts.

There is a private medical clinic in town with a Doctor, two medical assistants and 3 nurse type employees.  Medicare and all other insurance is accepted.  The Mercy Hospital in Redding (65miles) will pick up patients from the Doctor's office or any home that a helicopter can land at or from the lighted airport by fixed wing aircraft. The ambulance stationed in Hayfork is on duty 24 hours/day and  will transport to the airport, the hospital in Weaverville (33miles) or any hospital in Redding.  The Dentist is so well thought of that some of his patients come all the way from Redding. 

There are two markets, a health food store, feed store, hardware/building supply store, farmers market every Friday in the Spring and Summer, and a video store.  A Veterinary Clinic is open Wednesday 8-4. 

The Trinity County Fairgrounds is home to the annual county fair in August.

Hayfork boasts the best AIRPORT in the county with a 4200' paved runway, tie down spaces,  a new pilots' lounge and radio controlled runway lights.  A short walk from the airport via the suspension bridge over Hayfork Creek will bring you to the “Post Office Square”.  The Timberjack Lodge is the only motel in Hayfork.

If you prefer to camp or have an RV, there are facilities at the fair grounds, and Forest Glen which is on the South Fork of the Trinity River and is 17 miles south of Hayfork with campgrounds, picnic areas, fishing and swimming.

In 1989, citizens of the community constructed a new Senior Citizens Center in Hayfork.  The Center serves lunch Mon. thru Fri. Special pricing discount for seniors over 60. The cooks are excellent.  Periodically, there are flu shots, legal advice, estate planning, bingo and other services provided at the Center.  A County bus provides transportation twice daily to and from Weaverville (33 miles).

The Community maintains a centralized park with a solar heated pool, picnic area, children's play area, lighted little league field and tennis courts.  The high school has tennis courts, a baseball diamond, and a lighted track and football field.  There are numerous clubs active in the community among which are:  Rotary, VFW, Log Cabin Quilters,  CB Radio Club, Friends of the Library, The Spirits, Good Sams Club, Lions and many others.

It is worth noting that 78% of Trinity County is owned by the U.S. Government.  Hayfork is surrounded by U.S. Forest Service land and mountains ranging from 3600' to 6000'.  Our local reservoir of 40 acres is stocked annually with bass and trout and although no boats are allowed, there is some fine fishing.  Ruth Lake is about 24 miles to the west via Hwy. #3 and #36 and Whiskeytown Lake is east about 40 miles.  Then there is also Lewiston Lake north of Weaverville about 35 miles from Hayfork.  We have Hayfork Creek , which is a branch of the Trinity River, running through the town with some exciting steelhead fishing.   Deer and bear abound here for those who wish to go after them.  Traffic  stops every day downtown at some time to allow deer to cross the road.  Many of the subdivision houses have deer on the lawns in the morning.
