Return to the Lost Coast....And then some!
 
September 28-29th. This run will be an overnighter, with camping or lodging in Shelter Cove. Saturday will include two trails, one being Usal Rd with a stop at Usal Beach. We will leave Willits Saturday and take Sherwood Rd to Fort Bragg. It will be dusty, so be prepared for it. We will top off with fuel in Fort Bragg and head north on SR-1 to Blue's Beach, where we will break for lunch. We will then continue on SR-1 to Usal Rd and break again at Usal Beach. Continuing on Usal rd will lead us to Shelter Cove and our campground. Sunday we will run King's Peak trail and end up in Humboldt Redwoods State Park. We will need to limit this run to no more than 25 rigs due to limited number of campsites. Like all my runs, this is a family friendly run.

Trail difficulty is "easy". There will be about 1/2 pavement pounding and 1/2 dirt trail/forest service type roads, with a little sandy beach time thrown in for some fun. If you're looking for hardcore wheeling, this run isn't it.

Meet up time will be at 8:30AM, Safeway parking lot in Willits.

Gotcha on the list Mike! Your wife will enjoy the coast! If you don't want to camp, there is lodging in Shelter Cove which is only a few miles from the campground where the campers will be.

With the wife a hotel is a must! Thanks for the tip.

My wife doesn't camp either, so this is where we are staying.

This one is nice too. Right across the street and both are right on the water.

So should we try and get that same campground again? It worked out so great last year. :dance:

Yeah, that campground was awesome! I doubt we need to reserve it though, unless you want to.

Count me in for now. Will probably camp in Mendocino Home on Friday night to break up the drive a bit (coming from San Jose).

Welcome aboard Mark! You'll want a tent or if you have a JKU, you may have room in your jeep. There are several sites to choose from. There is a parking area in front of the campsites to park your rig. A place to sleep and some grub to throw on the fire is really all you need. A few pics of the campsites.

gene13 07-28-2013 01:56 PM

So we are going with the same campground.?.

Yes, unless you have a better suggestion. Doesn't matter to me cause my campsite has a bed and a shower, lol!

bobthetj03 07-28-2013 02:10 PM

I will be adding details to the run on the first post and updating the list, so keep an eye on post #1.
