Footsteps to the Wild
This split rock formation, roughly 1.5 miles north of the Black Sands Beach parking area, is a notable gateway. For southbound backpackers, it marks the final leg of the trek from the Mouth of the Mattole to Shelter Cove. For northbound hikers, it's a portal into the wilder, more rugged section of the Lost Coast following the broad, more popular beach to the south.
