Many changes have come to the trails of this spectacular corner of California, the most dramatic coast in our landmark series. We've fully revised, updated and expanded this essential guide to the hikes of Humboldt and Del Norte counties, the majestic land behind the Redwood Curtain. New trails covered in this Third Edition include Pt. St. George Headlands and Beaches near Crescent City, the venerable Boy Scout Tree Trail of Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park, Trillium Falls Loop and Berry Glen Trail in Redwood National Park, the multi-use Hammond Trail near McKinleyville, multi-use Arcata Ridge Trail, Eureka's Hikshari'-Elk River Multi-use Trail and Waterfront Trail, the Elk River Trail past the ghost town of Falk to a corner of the renowned Headwaters Forest, and the gentle trails of Southern Humboldt Community Park. In addition, we document the many changes to existing trails: rerouted Little Bald Hills Trail, DeMartin Trail, the partial closure to vehicles of Coastal Drive north of Prairie Creek which makes this an even better section of the Coastal Trail, Ossagon Trail, Elk Prairie Loop, the major rerouting of the James Irvine and Clintonia trails, Redwood Creek Trail, Agate Beach Trail, and Rim Loop at Patrick's Point State Park, Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary, Humboldt Redwoods State Park's vastly improved trail network: Bull Creek Flats/Big Tree Loop, Johnson Camp Trail, Baxter Trail and more, plus major changes at both King Range/Lost Coast, now a designated wilderness area, and Sinkyone Wilderness State Park. This fully reworked edition also includes many new and improved maps, changes to fees and regulations, updated camping info, and much more.
