Trimmer is an unincorporated community in Fresno County, California.[1] It is located 8 miles (13 km) north-northeast of Piedra,[2] at an elevation of 1030 feet (314 m).[1]

Originally located on the Kings River,[3] a post office operated at Trimmer from 1889 to 1890, from 1892 to 1919, moving in 1894 and 1895.[2] The name honors Morris Trimmer, who opened a resort called Trimmer Springs before 1911.[2] The site of the resort is now covered by the waters of Pine Flat Reservoir.[2] but the new community is located along the lakeside above the old site.
