The Lost Coast Trail is a 25 mile section of pristine and rugged California coastline. Big waves, dark beaches, an abandoned lighthouse, and bears are just a few of the surprises a hiker will enjoy while walking the Pacific Coast from Mattole Beach to Shelter Cove. The video below offers a comprehensive idea (37 minutes) of what the coast is like and how to prepare for the trail. I also provide planning recommendations, helpful links, and a gear list below. I respond to all posts in the comment section.
