Lost Coast Nor Cal

Who has ridden dual sports along the lost coast? What is ridable, what is off limits to motor vehicles, is there any single track that can be ridden, does anyone have any GPS tracks they would be willing to share? Thanks for your help.

First recognize that the true "Lost Coast" is not accessible by vehicle...you walk North from Shelter Cove or South from Petrolia on the beach to see that..

The road [good dirt road for all bikes and cars] inland that runs North/South is a dirt road with some limited access to coves on the coast...worth seeing..do checkout Whiterthorn for certain...but also remember that is prime "grower country" so don't go wandering around on a 'walk-about' or exploring on some out of the way dirt track...unless you know the grower..

Lived and worked along that coast for 30 years...until I escaped!

Yes, but not the Lost Coast...cuz at high tides and especially with large swells there is no beach only sheer mountain sides rising from sea level to several thousand feet..often hikers get stranded and are lucky if they have a gully to escape up...very cool country and very primitive, like in unspoiled.

Besides...I hope nobody takes anything mechanized on that pristine section of coast...

But that is just me...Phil

We went down there couple of years ago. Usal is pretty straightforward, but a really nice area to explore.
