My son and I enjoyed a three day outback adventure in one of a few coastal wilderness hiking experiences in the United States. The northern half of the Lost Coast Trail follows a rugged shoreline of sand and rock for 40km between Shelter Cove and Mattole Point in California. Weather during our trek was fantastic offering up breathtaking views, superb sunsets and refreshing dips - attached photo journal paints a clear picture.

Considerations for this hike include:
1. Shuttle service - call Bill's Lost Coast Shuttles @ 707-442-1983
2. Three impassible stretches of coastline during high tide
3. Mandatory bear canisters required
