Lost in Thought at the Lost Coast

Kings Range

Covering 68,000 acres and extending along 35 miles of coastline in California, King Range National Conservation Area preserves the dramatic meeting of the land and the sea. This remote region is known as California’s Lost Coast and is only accessed by a few back roads. But it’s worth the effort! The Douglas-fir peaks attract hikers, campers and mushroom collectors, while the coast beckons to surfers, anglers, beachcombers and abalone divers. Photos by Bob Wick, @mypubliclands.
