King Range National Conservation AreaSouthwest Humboldt County
Ferndale to Shelter Cove, California 95558
35 miles of coastline and over 68,000 acres of some of the most beautiful and untouched land in the country make up the King Range National Conservation Area.
Hiking, camping, mountain biking and more can be found in the area and the adventurous have an open invitation to explore all it has to offer. The outdoor activities available here are diverse and range from mild to extremely rugged.
For a day-trip, we suggest the hike to the Punta Gorda Lighthouse (north side of park) or spend a day at Black Sands Beach (south side of park).
How to get there:
