September 23 - 25


Looking for a bit of a challenge, but aren’t ready to traverse steep mountains? The Lost Coast of southern Humboldt County is an area that is unique to the entire coast of California. It is the largest road less area on this coastline, with miles of dynamic ocean views and un-crowded beaches. This trip takes place on the northern segment of the Lost Coast Trail up to 12 total miles on the trip. Though the trail is moderately level, the soft sand and traverse rocks make it an ideal challenge for any backpacker.
