The Trinity Mountains run in a southwest-northeasterly direction for 30–35 miles (48–56 km). The range runs between Trinity Lake and Lake Shasta, around 17 miles (27 km) northwest of Redding. Peaks of the Trinity Mountains rise to elevations of 4,000 feet (1,200 m) in the southwest, and to more than 7,200 feet (2,200 m) in the northeast.
The Chapple-Shasta Off-Highway Vehicle Area lies between the range and Lake Shasta.
The Trinity Mountains contain significant forested areas, including stands of Black Oak (Quercus kelloggii), Blue Oak (Quercus douglasii) and Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii). The Quercus douglasii occurrences are a disjunctive population of this California endemic tree species.
