The Hiksari Trail from Truesdale Street to the Herrick Avenue Park and Ride is the newest segment of the Eureka Waterfront Trail
The City of Eureka and Redwood Community Action Agency (RCAA) held a community celebration of the Elk River Access Area and Hiksari Trail, a new segment of the Eureka Waterfront Trail that has been in the planning stages for years. Heavy equipment work is scheduled to begin Tuesday.

On Tuesday, June 5, the Eureka City Council will consider reallocating State Transportation funding to the next segment of the trail, from Truesdale Street north to Del Norte Street.
Many thanks to all the people who worked tirelessly for so many years to get this project funded and permitted: Eureka City staff, RCAA staff, California Coastal Conservancy, California Coastal Commission, and so many others.
