The rugged Northern California coast of Mendocino, Humboldt, and Del Norte Counties is one of the most dramatic stretches of coastline in North America. Unlike the sandy beaches typically associated with Hollywood visions of Southern California, steep bluffs, rocky beaches, and offshore rocks combine to create the classic portrait of the Golden State’s far northern coastline. Above this stunning seascape resides a forest containing the world’s tallest trees. In Top Trails Northern California’s Redwood Coast, veteran outdoors author Mike White presents 57 diverse routes, suited to all ability levels and interests. These trails range from a gentle half-mile morning loop to a 29-mile backpack adventure. Whether you’re looking for lush, oldgrowth redwoods or picture-postcard vistas to Pacific Ocean sea stacks, dazzling sunsets, and migrating whales, you’ll find it here.
