King Peak Trail is a 4.6 mile out and back trail located near Garberville, CA that offers scenic views and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round.
This trail is awesome! It climbs up to breath taking 360 degree views over looking the Lost Coast Redwoods and the wild Pacific Ocean.
Hiked this trail as part of a longer Lost Coast trip in the King Range wilderness area. It's a strenuous climb, especially with a full pack, but the ocean and mountain vistas are worth it. It was very cold and windy at the peak even though the weather going up most of the ridge was very pleasant.
