Family Friendly Plenty of levels to these headlands. Ocean level, first bluff, and then the peak. Take your time and enjoy it all.

Overview

This point is a study in geology. Current erosion along the bluffs is always occurring, and this is a great route that showcases it all.

Need to Know

By the bluffs there are steep drop offs.

Description

As you begin this route, you are under the canopy of the trees. As you approach the beach, the trees make way for more open landscapes and chaparral.

Take the first left onto the Lishumsha Trail and as soon as it joins the California Coastal Trail, go right. At the beach you'll see the Bootleggers Steps Trail to your left. Climb up to the top and work your way out to the edge. Not too close though!

When you head back, stay right along the Mori Bluff Trail. There will be some climbing and it will connect to the Mori Ridge Trail. After you reach the top, backtrack and look left for the Timigtac Trail.

Follow this until you see the California Coastal Trail on your left. You'll now start making your way downward. Follow this trail back to the Lishumsha Trail and on back to finish your loop.

Just did this trail yesterday and it was great! We started hiking it at Old Mori Rd which was easy, but then once we got to the coast and started the loop back, it got a little more difficult. We ended up taking Timigtac Trail I believe by accident which was definitely even more difficult with steep up and down hills. Lots of wildflowers and nice views along the coast. Jul 2, 2017
