The Lost Coast Trail earned its name after California’s Highway 1. The trail designers routed the path around the rugged sections of coastline. The 24-mile trail follows the beach of the King Range Conservation Area and is one of the most unique backpacking experiences in the world. Daily encounters include whales, elephant seals, coyotes, and bears; while the trail shows off tide pools, wildflower-covered mountains, and stunning waterfalls from the adjacent cliffsides into the ocean.

This guides includes the 24 miles from Mattole to Shelter Cove (Black Sands Beach).
