Join alumni from Columbia University for a hike of Mori Point. Well-known for its spectacular views of the San Mateo Coast, Mori Point is also a place of historical significance. For nearly a century, the coast area served as a haven for settlers, travelers, infamous boot-leggers and diners. The history of this region traces its roots to the Mori family that immigrated from Italy in the 1870s.
We will hike the full loop around the perimeter of Mori Point and part of the Mori Ridge Trail. You’ll enjoy views of the San Mateo coastline, marine mammal life (perhaps migrating gray whales), and rare endangered species such as the San Francisco garter snake and the red-legged frog. The group will also hike the Bootlegger’s Steps (and learn about the infamous history of this section of the pacific coast).
Trailhead Location: There is plenty of street parking where Mori Point Road meets Bradford Way. The group will gather nearby in the parking lot for the Loyal Order of Moose Lodge (776 Bradford Way, Pacifica, CA 94044).
Date: Saturday, Jan 30, 2016
Time: 1:00PM (please arrive 15 minutes early)
