Mori Point is More Than Just a Hike

Expansive vistas and an interesting past makes hiking Mori Point in Pacifica a real cultural landscape experience.

Did you know that the place where Harold drove his Jaguar off a cliff in the cult movie "Harold and Maude" is today the 105-acre site of Mori Point in Pacifica?

Or that the Mori family were originally farmers who by the 1920s their primary business was the Mori Point Inn, a popular drinking place especially during Prohibition?

More history, interesting facts and information about hiking Mori Point can be found in a recent San Francisco Chronicle article about the area here.

Threatened with development for more than 30 years, Mori Point was transferred to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in 2000, according to the San Francisco Chronicle article.

Today, Mori Point is a Pacifica gem, consisting of a series of tidy trails side by side with natural habitats that have been restored.

See what wonders restoration work has created at this rugged coastal promontory in Pacifica. The terrain here is varied; walks around Mori Point range from a level and easy 0.5-mile stroll to a steep and challenging 1.5-mile hike.
