Airports

Trinity County owns and operates a county wide airport system consisting of five public use general aviation airports located throughout the County - Lonnie Pool Field in Weaverville; James E. Swett Field in Trinity Center; Hayfork Airport; Hyampom Airport; and Ruth Airport.

Both county residents and visitors can access the rugged remoteness of Trinity County easily and enjoy the surrounding attractions of each airfield's locale.

Currently, there is no fuel or car rentals available at any of the five airports.
