Backpacking the Lost Coast Trail: Summit to Sea August 11th-15th

August 11, 2020 @ 9:00 am - August 15, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

Big mountain views. Majestic Wildlife. Vivid night skies

Climbing mountains are one of our passions and what better place to do it in the magic mountains of the Lost Coast. With a wide range of geologic features that have dramatically changed over time and the impressive King’s Range mountains stretching as far as the eye can see, this adventure is one of our favorites. Get ready to climb King’s Peak, the tallest and most magnificent of all the King’s Range! Don’t worry, you still get to put your toes on the sand when you finish your trip oceanside with a sense of accomplishment and wonder for our lush beauty here in Humboldt County…
