Short scenic ride with a gradual ascent and moderate descent

Overview

Description

This short coastal trail rewards those able to chug through a gradual ascent with beautiful ocean views and a short but fun descent. First part of the trail is an ascent on a moderately trafficked and well maintained dirt path. Can also be accessed through the connecting Lishumsha Trail via Old Mori Road, but beware of poison oak on Lishumsha Trail.

Take in the panoramic view at Mori Point overlook before making a hard left to continue the ascent through a saddle between the hills. This is the hardest part of the ascent with some loose gravel and the steepest grade, but it is very short. Beginners won't have to walk their bikes very far.

Descent begins to the right when you reach the saddle. Definitely more technical than the ascent, but only moderately difficult and fairly easily handled by beginners confident in their braking ability. There are ruts at many sections, but they are pretty easy to get around. Some fun but small jumps to try towards the top. Empties out into the Pacifica quarry and a short descent on paved trail leading to Rockaway Beach.
