Trip: Lost Coast: Day 2 - Sinkyone Wilderness - Adventure Run
Day two of our tour of the Lost Coast took us from Hidden Valley in the King Range up and over Chemise Mountain and down into the Sinkyone Wilderness continuing all the way to the southern end at Usal Beach for a total distance of 28 miles. The travel was often arduous with significant elevation gain and loss (6,000+ ft) and often on narrow, brushy trails (stinging nettles, poison oak, and other annoying weeds) with poor footing. Sinkyone Wilderness all the way to Usal Beach for a total of 28. Along the way we saw a herd of 50+ elk and enjoyed jaw dropping views and vistas of the rugged and wild coastline. This is not a climb, but some of you might be interested in the photography and visiting this amazing place. For photos and video of day one, the King Range Beach Walk, along with a general description of the Lost Coast, see here.
hey Leor... I just checked out your blog and the LaSportiva Mountain Running blog...pretty cool stuff. A friend and I are thinking about giving the Glacier Pk. C2C a try, so I checked out your past t.r. for hints. Lots of good beta there. Thanx. btw: your adventure running site is a the best trove of mountain pr0n I've seen in a long time! --good luck with your running and climbing!
