Walking the cobbled shores of Sonoma County’s ‘Lost Coast’, the CCT hiker will think himself deep within a coastal wilderness yet the unseen and unheard Highway 1 is carved into the precipitous hills just above the shoreline route of the CCT. With good weather and moderately low tides, this hike is well worth its inherent difficulties there is a lot of rock hopping and plenty of chances for wet feet. [Jon Breyfogle]
