Lost Coast Backpack

Lost Coast Backpack

Join us for a backpacking trip the the Lost Coast of CA on 15 - 17 May 2009. This is THE time of the year to visit this spectacular part of the N. CA coast. This trail made Backpacker Magazine's "Best Trails" selection in a recent issue. We will depart the Bay Area mid afternoon on Thursday 14 May and carpool to the area of the Southern Southern terminus of the Northern part of the trail by Thursday night (Hwy 101 to Garberville then to Shelter Cove - National forest service camping the first night). Friday morning we will car pool to the Mattole trailhead and proceed to hike 31miles down the coast with 2 overnights on the beach. Much of the "trail" is on sand, so the hiking will not be challenging, but footing will not be firm. Bear Cans are required as are water filters and warm, weather proof clothing (Goretex, Fleece, hat, gloves). Sturdy tents that may be staked in sand, headlamps, and stoves with good wind shields are encouraged. Up to six participants.

Mt. Lassen Day Trip

Mt. Lassen (10,462)

We will meet at the old ski lodge on Sat. morning at 8 AM. We will follow the unplowed road or use a time saving short cut, if safe, and attempt the peak and plan to return to our cars by 5PM. Participants can travel on skis or snowshoes. We will not bring axes and crampons and if we reach a point where because of icy snow we can't go on safely we will turn around. This is a fairly hard day and participants need to be in good condition.
