      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

[TR] Lost Coast: Day 2 - Sinkyone Wilderness - Adventure Run 7/4/2010

Trip: Lost Coast: Day 2 - Sinkyone Wilderness - Adventure Run

 

Date: 7/4/2010

 

Trip Report:

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!

I backpacked the easy stretch last summer and loved it. Now you inspire me to try the hillier section. Wonderful photos!

Thanks! The Sinkyone is an underrated destination and is arguably more scenic than the much more popular King Range beach walk.

 

zoroaster, thanks for the comment and glad the Glacier Peak TR was useful for you!
