The Lost Coast Trail Key-Swap

The Lost Coast Trail is a point-to-point backpacking trip. We recommend that you leave your car at the end of the trail. So how do you get to the start of the hike?

There are three options: take the shuttle, use 2 cars, or arrange a key-swap. Key-swap is the best option if you only have one car and you don’t want to spend $95 per person on the shuttle ride.

If you’ve never swapped keys before, we will show you how it works and how to find somebody to swap keys with.
