Lost Coast Trail: King Range Wilderness Loop (Backpacking) Professional Review and Guide
"Established in 2006 as one of the state’s newest wilderness areas, the 42,585-acre King Range Wilderness encompasses the rugged and wild coastline of the northern Lost Coast. It includes the western flanks of the King Range, which lurch upward from the ocean to its high point atop 4088- foot King Peak, less than 3 miles from the coast. Small streams carve deep ravines through the coastal bluffs, providing water and oceanside campsites for beach-walking hikers, while rugged and seldomtraveled trails journey through the high, dry interior of the King Range."

Good hike!, The guide was very good and pretty accurate. Make sure you load up with water before going up Rattlesnake Ridge. Maple camp was very nice and shady.
