To continue to the Southern half of The Lost Coast Trail, you can either walk the paved Beach Rd and Shelter Cove Rd east, or, if you prefer trails/dirt roads, leave the beach a couple of miles before reaching the trailhead, go up on Horse Mountain trail (half a mile before crossing Horse Mountain Creek), and turn south on the King Mountain Rd. It follows a ridge with great views, and when it hits Shelter Cove Rd turn left and then right after 0.4 mile toward Chemise Mountain Road. The trailhead to The Lost Coast Trail (South Section) is on the right side after 0.2 miles. The trail is not on Komoot's OSM-map base yet as of 2016; you can follow our GPS tracks here komoot.de/tour/8420259
