backpack - california'lost coast - moderate pace - shuttle or out and back

Backpack thru the King Range National Conservation Area and Sinkyone Wilderness State Park in the most remote coastal region of California, in Humboldt and Mendocino Counties. If we have two vehicles or arrange a shuttle, this will be a 10-day, 64-mile thru-hike, with re-supply at the 24-mile point. With just one vehicle, we'll do two out-and-back trips in 11 days from a mid-point at Shelter Cove. There will be an option to join us for either section if you can't do the whole trip. This trip requires backpacking experience, bear canisters, registration, $50 deposit and pre-trip planning meeting. Be prepared for ticks, poison oak, rattle snakes, hiking in deep sand, cumulative elevation gain and loss of 8000', river crossings, and dramatic wilderness coastal views. 950-mile drive each way. Limited to 6 people.
