Beauty of the Lost Coast Hike

August 24, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Join Sanctuary Forest on Saturday, August 24th for the Beauty of the Lost Coast Hike. Led by John & Susie Jennings and Sanctuary Forest Board member Eric Shafer, this hike is typically a rigorous all-day hike in the Sinkyone Wilderness State Park, but due to winter storm damage, the road is closed until further notice.

We are happy to announce that this year we will be taking a moderate walk during low tide down the beach from Mal Coombs Park to Dead Man’s Point! Participants will be treated to the beauty of our Lost Coast, an informative historical narrative about Shelter Cove, natural history of the area including the San Andreas fault, coastal erosion and sand movement, marine mammals, tide pools, and fascinating historical photos.

  • Meet at 10am at the lighthouse in Mal Coombs Park on Lower Pacific Road in Shelter Cove.
  • The hike is less than 2 miles round-trip and will end at 1pm.
  • Bring lunch, plenty of water, dress in layers and wear sturdy shoes – some of the terrain is uneven.
  • 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 call (707) 986-1087 x 9#.
