About 225 miles north of San Francisco, the rugged coastline forces California State Route 1 inland, leaving a 60-mile stretch of wilderness called the Lost Coast. Here, along the Pacific Ocean, the famed Lost Coast Trail offers one of the few coastal wilderness …
The League’s wildlife cams at Cape Vizcaino (Cape Viz) in Mendocino County caught animals in action playing, prancing, grazing, and generally doing what animals do. The property provides habitat to a variety of wildlife including (but certainly not limited to) American black bears, ospreys, black tailed deer, and pumas living among stands of old-growth coast redwoods, grasslands, chaparral, and a scenic, rugged coastline.
The Lost Coast lends itself to adventure like nowhere else in California. As you explore this stunningly beautiful, remote expanse of coastal bluffs and forests, a true sense of discovery takes hold – it feels wonderfully wild and unchanged. With 100 miles of almost completely roadless beauty, this is the longest stretch of undeveloped coastline left in California. Small wonder that the spectacular trail that winds along the Lost Coast is a top-tier, bucket-list adventure for all who love to get into the wild. And now that trail is even better!
Thanks to more than 6,200 gifts from League members like you, Big River-Mendocino Old-Growth Redwoods is now protected from logging and development! Now we need your help to restore and open this magical place to the public.
