From an article "10 Locations to Visit for Free" ... From The Record Searchlight

Woodley Island Lighthouse

Built in 1892, this Victorian-style ornate lighthouse was the first lighthouse constructed in Humboldt Bay. The square-towered lighthouse was once attached to a Victorian house, a fog-signal building and housing for the assistant keeper, all lined up on Table Bluff, a 165-foot promontory four miles south of the entrance to Humboldt Bay. Take Hookton Road Exit off Highway 101 and travel west, then turn left on Table Bluff Road and right on South Jetty Road. Call (707) 443-0801 for information.

Trinidad Head Memorial Lighthouse

When the Coast Guard donated the original fog bell and Fresnel lens from the Trinidad Head Lighthouse in 1947, the Trinidad Civic Club built this memorial lighthouse on the bluff overlooking Trinidad Bay. The bell tolls every day at noon in memory of those buried or lost at sea, and a plaque lists their names. Brightly colored flowers bloom on the grounds. A trail leads you down to the beach. Take Highway 101 to the Trinidad exit, turn left and continue until you see the memorial lighthouse directly in front of you.
