Two women are traveling along the 1,230 mile California coastline to document the California Coastal Trail and raise awareness about the trail.

Its part of a project called Mojo Coastwalk and is funded through a California Coastal Conservancy grant.

Jocelyn Enevoldsen and Morgan Visalli began their journey at the Oregon border in the beginning of May. They plan on hiking the entire way along the coast all the way to the Mexican border in San Diego County. They both estimated they would arrive there in August.

During their hike, they plan on documenting the coastline and doing research to provide interpretive content that will educate the public. The goal is to create the first digital map of the trail.

They said they hoped people would be able to learn more about the trail and become inspired to protect the coastline.

"We really just want to inspire coastal stewardship and caring for the coast," Visalli said. "We know that when people get out to the coast and experience how incredible it is, that they will be inspired to care for it."

"We wanted to help spread the word about the trail and we decided to through hiking the whole thing and sharing our story along the way and get other people out to the coast," Enevoldsen said.

The pair expects to arrive in Eureka on Friday and then begin the Lost Coast Trail portion of their journey after that.

Anyone interested in following their hike can go to their Facebook or their website.
