Overview

Remote coastal road visits forgotten beaches.

Enjoy misty ocean views along a forgotten beach while exploring a remote coastal road. Camp and relax in near seclusion. Swing through Sinkyone Wilderness State Park, where you might get lucky like we did and see an elk or two strolling past the visitor center. When you’re done, head north on Highway 101 for a drive through amazing Humbolt Redwoods State Park, where you’ll see some of the largest redwood trees in California.

This past weekend we tried to run Lost Coast Trail. The trail was closed just past the cutoff down to Usal Beach. Someone put in a large yellow gate that was locked stating that the road was closed.

Several “locals” warned of a difficult trail. Needing an off-road setup for rock crawling!! Not sure why. After driving the trail, found it to be almost like the description on here. Perhaps a little more ruts and wash outs than originally described.
