PCA Diablo Region Members,

Avenue of the Giants / Lost Coast tour. 

March 2 & 3th, Led by Lillie Echevarria



Ready for a scenic drive up Northern California to view the amazing redwood forest?  Our tour will depart from the Buttercup Bar & Grill (660 Ygnacio Valley Blvd, Walnut Creek) at 7 a.m.  As we leave the congested city, we will emerge into the countryside for some famous sightseeing spots and photo opportunities.

We will drive the entire ” Avenue of the Giants” featuring an amazing display of Redwood trees– many over 900 years old –on a scenic route!  Our first day will end at “The Scotia Inn” in Scotia.

On Sunday, after breakfast, we will make our way up to Ferndale and start the famous or perhaps infamous “Lost Coast “ drive through the alpine forest  and a breath-taking descent to the ocean.  Our drive will continue along the Mattole river and Humboldt State Park.  We will enjoy lunch at the historic “Benbow Inn” resort in Benbow.


Suggested to carry water and snack along in your car and bring a camera to capture the moments!
