Great easy hike. We were told by local hikers to stay on the trail to be clear of ticks. We did not have any problems.

Great view. Issue is the trail may get too hot as there are no shades or any trees. Bring water.

The trailhead is hard to find, it's behind the Shelldance Orchid Gardens on Mori Ridge Road. You can only get there by taking a right off of 1 North. It's a nice hike with good views of the coast on one side and bay on the other. Right from the start the trail climbs for about a mile, mile and a half then it's pretty flat once you're on top of the ridge. It wasn't busy (we hiked on a Sunday mid day) but there were other people on the trail. If it's sunny bring lots of water, there isn't much shade. It was a good little climb but the hike overall fell a little flat, not entirely sure why.

Great trail. Very easy hike with nice view. Be sure to bring layers, west coast can get pretty windy

Good views and great exercise. Very good climbs to keep you in shape.

2.25 miles of uphill hiking with occasional flat part....perfect start not so grueling for some. There are benches BUT, view is obstructed. Weather is great if you like the warm overcast with occasional sun peeking. last 2 miles is a cool down. A good time to take in the beautiful sights...enjoyable escape.

We did this hike today! It was definitely moderate - difficult as it was a lot of vertical. The views were great despite the fog & it wasn't busy. Restrooms available at the trailhead & maps.

Rather than the loop, it's better to turn around and come back down from the top. The second half of the loop is views of roads and houses.

Rabbits, whales.

on Mori Point Trail

Mori Point is really just one of my favorite spots to go walk or run alone. I feel pretty safe here. There's always people either walking their dogs and chatting or running. Typically I like to go from Mori beach to Rockaway beach up the winding path to Linda Mar Beach. Whether running or walking, you will not be disappointed with the weather nor the views you will see. There are some trails with very steep hills, be careful some have a lot of loose rocks.

Loved this hike! Incredible views.

We walked on pavement most of time. Probably wouldnt do this again

Beautiful scenery

Easy trail with awesome views. You can spot whales from the high points in the trail in summer.

This trail was awesome for trail running. Great views of the ocean while going along the side of the hill. I joined up with another trail that did a loop and intersected gray whale trail again. Running, the whole thing took 30 minutes I could've gone longer as there were more trails available to go higher up. Perfect for a morning warm-up.

The sights on this trail are amazing. Some of the trails might get somewhat difficult for the average Joe, but it is nothing that can't be overcome. Its makes a great day with family and friends.
