Sunset Hike to Mori Point

Mori Point Trailhead

The hike to Mori Point offers a variety of difficulty from a brisk sunset walk to an intermediate two mile sunrise hike. Pacifica is 30 minutes south of San Francisco through Highway 1.

Start at the parking lots close to the pier, where bathrooms are also available. Walk along the pier to watch the sunset as it begins.

Next, walk along Sharp Park Beach to discover the plethora of wild flowers and friendly locals always ready to guide you on your walk.

Take the stairs up to the main vista and enjoy a panoramic view of Pacifica and the ocean crashing against the rocks down below.

Take one of the many available benches and stay warm as you watch the last seconds of sunlight for the day.

Great Views And Fun Hills!

Sunset is the best time to go. There are lots of hills and tiny tails you can take to explore the area. The Rockaway Beach side has some great food options too!
