The rugged and remote Lost Coast offers the largest span of pristine beach and shoreline on the US West Coast, most of it preserved in the King Range Conservation Area and Sinkyone Wilderness State Park. The landscape there is so rugged that highway builders gave up. Of the four roads that reach this wild coast, two are one-lane dirt, and all are twisting and steep. There is only one organized community the 100-mile stretch of wilderness, Shelter Cove.
