“Winding road leading to beautiful isolation”
A 100-mile stretch of coast, nicknamed the "Lost Coast", can be reached from Mattole Road (among a few other points). If you're driving down Pacific Coast Highway, this is your first opportunity to go to the Lost Coast. The PCH will veer inland and follow the Eel River, but a detour down Mattole Road and to the Lost Coast is worth a day or two off the famous highway. Just be sure to pack some necessary provisions in case you stay longer than planned. Be careful down there.
Be prepared for a good 4 hours hike in order to enjoy the great views at the end of the Road of the Lost Coast.
The place isn't overcrowded and as you follow the trails you can feel like walking within farms. You can see cows and sheep eating their food, but you cannot get close to them.
My children wanted to go and play with the animals, but we insisted to keep walking.
Good experience for everyone if you are dressed properly and wear comfortable shoes..
