Fortuna Riverwalk

Take a Stroll by Running Water

Fortuna Riverwalk

Fortuna's Riverwalk is a 2-mile path along the Eel River that offers hikers and bikers an intimate look at one of the North Coast's most captivating rivers. In summer and early fall the river is usually a tiny ribbon meandering through a huge channel of sand and gravel deposited during its winter flows. During winter, after a heavy rain, the river can rise to within a few yards of the levee. The air is fresh and sweet, and the views are intoxicating.

The Riverwalk area has become a favorite stop for travelers along Hwy 101, with several hotels, restaurants and conveniences all within walking distance. There are an RV park and tent and cabin sites. The Riverwalk makes an excellent base from which to tour the Eel River Valley, with many amenities for residents and travelers alike.

The River Lodge Conference Center is located on the Riverwalk. A beautifully designed, rustic-looking yet modern structure, the venue, although integrated into the natural landscape, offers such modern conveniences as wireless internet access. It features meeting and banquet space in a variety of beautifully appointed rooms, and can host groups from 10 to 500. Local artists have provided their interpretations of the natural environment that surrounds Fortuna, and their works are displayed in the lobby gallery. There is also a gift shop featuring locally produced products. On the grounds you will see Northern California's largest and most diverse heather garden, featuring more than 400 different varieties of heaths and heathers.
