Rocks and Islands Wilderness
Recreational opportunities are limited as most of the rocks and islands are surrounded by rough ocean waters and large waves. Wildlife viewing from the Lost Coast Trail within the King Range Wilderness is considered the primary activity.
Climate and Special Equipment Needs
The climate along this part of California's coastline can change in short notice. Spring, summer, and fall are the best time periods for more gentle climate. Heavy rains oftentimes occur during the winter months.
Safety and Current Conditions
Become knowledgeable of weather conditions in the area and carry a tide tables booklet as portions of the Lost Coast Trail are impassable during high tides. Never turn your back on the ocean!
