Backpacking the Lost Coast

September 11-13

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 25 miles of dynamic ocean views and un-crowded beaches. This trip takes place on the northern segment of the Lost Coast Trail. Though the trail is moderately level, the soft sand and traverse rocks make it an ideal challenge for any backpacker.
