Visit California recently shined a light on jet boat tours, the Yurok Country Visitor Center, Trees of Mystery, canoe tours, and the condors in their ways to play in Yurok Country feature. Building on these, this blog aims to provide a companion guide to Visit California's feature for the lesser-known, community favorites throughout the year.  Eat at the Abalone Bar & Grill for local flavors, stop at the Klamath Tour-Thru Tree for a photo op, and follow our seasonal activity guides to enrich your Yurok Country visit.
