The trip itself will be 4 full days and 3 nights in the backcountry of California’s Lost Coast. All food will be provided and we will enjoy 4 relaxing days on California’s only stretch of coast (40 miles!) with no road access. Camping on the beach to the sound of waves crashing – there is no other backpacking experience like it!
This trip is a “one way trail”; starting and ending at Shelter Cove, CA (the southern entrance to the Lost Coast trail) you will take a shuttle to the north end of the trail and then hike back to the starting location where your vehicle is parked. Your 4-day trip will involve hiking each day as well as time to just relax, swim in the ocean or rivers, and take in the sights! More information will be provided upon registration. This trip is an incredible experience, and one of the only places left in the continental United States where you can experience this kind of solitude on the coast. Don’t miss this opportunity!
This trip is booked on a private custom basis and may be booked for groups as small as 2 or as large as 10. Pricing based on group size. Contact us (click below) for more info and pricing.
