Solo Traveling the Pacific North West, Part 3.

Hiking to Mussel Rock, Sue-meg State Park.

{This post contains affiliate links}


Officially have a MUST return location, Sue-meg State Park in Humboldt County, California.

Caoihme and I stumbled upon this stunning trail while camping in Trinidad. As I have mentioned before, I prefer to just see what is out there.

Hiking trails galore, and 3 very large campgrounds fill this California State Park.

Five or so miles into our adventure, we found our first trail. The ocean air was getting stronger by the minute.

The sound of waves crashing was getting louder.

We descended our 7th or so set of shady “stairs,” and then BAM, Mussel Rock proudly appeared before us.


Definitely wear your hiking boots! {LINK BELOW}

The trail we took was the Pacific Rim. It was steep at times so you need true hiking shoes to keep steady. These are my absolute go-to’s when I am on unsteady ground like the slippery rocks we experienced!

I have also been asked quite a bit about my “day pack!” I am obsessed with it as it comes with multiple deep pockets that keep my supplies safe.

A few months ago I purchased it from NuPouch, and as a notoriously habitual loser of items it’s perfect.

Helpful Tools!
