I've always wanted to explore the Lost Coast! I'd love to have some new friends join me- there seemed like there was some interest in the post that has since been deleted, so I thought I would post.
There was a full itinerary on the meet up that was posted- I'd like to follow that- can the poster of that trip send it to me please? There are a few logistics we will need to discuss- primarily getting up there
If anyone would like to go , we can discuss dates - I'm free sept 3-8
Hidden south of Shelter Cove between Needle Rock and Usal Beach the 20 mile hike located in the Sinkyone Wilderness State Park is a remote and far less traveled part of the Lost Coast Trail. It is a pristine wilderness area and home to various reclusive wildlife and rare native plants. This spirited hike also boasts a herd Roosevelt elk, spring wildflowers, ancient redwood trees and elevated ocean vistas for whale watching. Please be aware that in the Sinkyone Wilderness firearms are not allowed at all, and that dogs are not permitted on the trail.
While without trucking through soft sand or near the dangerous surf this firmly packed trail still offers hiking along the coastline. It is a trail without any dangerous high tide zones or cold rushing creeks to cross. You will have your choice of multiple beachside campsites with pit toilets. These sites are available on a first come basis throughout the hike. Bear cans are not required because there are trees in which to hang your food. The water sources are less than five miles apart, and be sure you filter and/or purify the water before you use it no matter how clean it appears to be to avoid harmful bacteria.
