The Arttus Ranch is a house located in Douglas City, near Weaverville, in the "Trinity Alps" area of Northern California. It is on the Trinity River, and offers fabulous fishing, bicycling, birding, dark skies, and quiet. The ranch is 17 miles from the historic gold-mining town of Weaverville and 45 miles from Redding.
The Arttus Ranch is located outside of Douglas City, along the Trinity River. Douglas City is about 7 miles from Weaverville. It takes about 15 minutes to get from the ranch to "town", or Weaverville. Weaverville is an old historic gold-mining town, with some great museums and historic places of interest. It's a very walkable kind of town, with a great supermarket, some farmer's markets, a once a month "Art Cruise" of town artists.
It's easy to get into town, but even better to get out of it, & enjoy the ranch. There, you can walk along the river, skip stones, dig for gold, bird watch, fish. It's a fabulous spot for star watching!
The "Trinity Alps" are midway between Redding, CA and the coast, or Eureka, on Hwy 299. It's a convenient place to meet family members or friends coming down from Oregon.
The ranch is about 45 minutes from Redding on Hwy 5, which, in turn, is about 4 1/2 hours from SF or the Bay Area.
