Returning to finish The Lost Coast Trail

Recommended Posts


My next backpacking trek will be a return to conquer California's Lost Coast Trail. I am planning on doing this with a backpacking buddy February 19-23. My blog post I Lost to the Lost Coast from December of 2015 will explain why this is a return to conquer for me. The plan is to meet at Shelter Cove, CA, leave a car and then drive to Mattole Trailhead to begin the trek on Thursday morning the 20th back to Shelter Cove. The tide charts are favorable with 0' low tide occurring in late afternoon which will work out fine as long as the weather cooperates. We should finish up the trek on Saturday drive back to pickup a car at Mattole and then spend a night in the Redwoods before driving back home to Oregon.
