Mendocino's Lost Coast

Lost Coast
(Six Day Trip)

Backpacking the Beaches from the Mattole River to Shelter Cove in Mendocino

Old growth redwood forests, black sand beaches—this is the trip you've been waiting for!

We've been backpacking the Lost Coast just south of here for many years and now. By popular demand, we're offering this hike along the shoreline of the wild and remote northern section.

This 25-mile trail is primarily a beach route and is probably the most pristine stretch of coastline in California. Our route takes us past the old Punta Gorda lighthouse, and we'll see relics of early shipwrecks, old pioneer cabins and ranches, seabirds, sea lions, and other marine wildlife. Our hiking days will be planned around the tides. This is a beautiful, often fog-free, time of year to do this spectacular trip.
