Hiking at Mori Point

I went hiking at Mori Point a few months ago. It’s a stunning park a couple miles south of Fort Funston (one of my favorite places near SF).

When you first arrive, you’ll notice a wall of boulders lined up against the shoreline.

There are views in every direction, including a nice bike path that takes you through a small marsh.

However, there’s a less travelled path that takes you up the hill for an exquisite view.

Some of the paths are gnarly… and in some cases, a misstep could cause you to tumble down to a very painful death. You can’t really see it in this photo, but there’s about a 100″ drop-off to the left of this path.

And did I mention that the wild flowers were absolutely stunning.

Here’s what the park looks like from the other end.

That hill doesn’t look like much, but it’s pretty steep. I wanted to get a better view, so I went for a climb.

At the top, there’s a spiral made of rocks. I’m not sure exactly what it means, but it’s pretty cool.

From this view, you could also see about a dozen whales. It’s quite a spectacle.

These steps definitely made it easier to get back down.

So this beat may look nice, but I heard that there used to be a sewage line that connected nearby. Pretty amazing hike. Highly recommended.
