California is huge and offers tons of adventures for anyone who visits, but this roadless coastline in Northern California may be one of the last wild places on the west coast. With 60-miles of black sand beaches, oceans with the perfect surf, and a driftwood campfire to warm your heart and spirit, visiting what is often called the Lost Coast, is like living in a dream.

Stretching between Shelter Cove to the south and the Mattole River to the north, the Lost Coast is a wild land of forests, fog, waves, and sand. The Visit California website, provides a lot of information if your interested in a natural adventure in the area, including this enticing quote: Walk a wild beach to discover shell mounds, marking the spot where Native Americans once shucked clams and shellfish.
