“Easy hike with great returns”
Review of Lost Coast Trail

Ranked #9 of 46 things to do in Eureka

Reviewed December 8, 2013

I am a very unfit women cursed with an athletic husband. This hike was not work for me at all, nearly no grade, just beautiful views. I suggest good boots, because parts were muddy and slippery, but otherwise, I could have been walking around a mall. A beautiful, seaside mall. If we're ever in Eureka again, I'll absolutely do this again.

Walking on large rocks was more challenging than anticipated. Worry about high tide and impassable areas more taxing than anticipated. Overall a beautiful and rugged trip. Great two days of sun last day 100% foggy but still very cool. Lots of access to drinking water.

The drive to the lost coast from Ferndale is scenic and when we did it, the marine layer was all over us and it seemed like driving through the clouds. The road is windy and narrow at times. After about 35 minutes of drive from Ferndale, we ended up at lost coast but much of the coastal access is blocked by fences. It just seems unfair that the cows and horses are closer to the beach than us. We were hoping for a beach access to have fun the kids, but didn't find a beach that suited us. Most of it is rocky and access is limited.

This coastline is wild and epic, well worth the winding, twisty road. The beaches are magnificent, lots of good beach coming material, driftwood, rocks, shells etc.
