Beauty of the Lost Coast Hike

May 25, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Join Sanctuary Forest on Sunday, June 11th for the Beauty of the Lost Coast: Needle Rock to Bear Harbor hike. This hike will be led by Sanctuary Forest Board member Eric Shafer, Marisa Formosa, and John & Susie Jennings. Participants will be treated to spectacular views of the rugged coastline, abundant wildlife and plants, and stories about the history of Bear Harbor and the Sinkyone Wilderness. It is 6 miles round trip, beginning at the Needle Rock Visitors Center in the Sinkyone Wilderness State Park. Meet at the Sanctuary Forest office in Whitethorn at 9 a.m. to carpool. The hike will end at 4 p.m. Bring lunch, plenty of water, dress in layers and wear sturdy hiking shoes. A sketch or note book is also suggested, and a leisurely lunch at Bear Harbor is planned. The hike is listed as rigorous due to length and a series of rolling and steep hills—however the trail is wide and in good shape. This hike is free of charge, though donations are gladly accepted and help Sanctuary Forest to offer this program year after year. For questions or clarifications, contact anna@sanctuaryforest.org, or visit www.sanctuaryforest.org.
