Just an hour drive from south bay, Mavericsk Cliffs Trail at Half Moon Bay is an easy hike along the cliffs overlooking the famous surf location.
I started the walk at Tide Pool Parking lot (google it for direction), and the trail starts just across the parking lot through a gate that leads to the cliff.
It was a foggy afternoon yet sunny in some parts. There is no specific route to follow. You just walk along the cliff for ocean view and watch those crazy surfers riding the giant waves.
Late February and the wildflowers have started blooming. So, if you get a chance do go in the Spring time. And this trail is dog friendly.
Its a great trail for an easy mountain biking among the wildflowers. There are quiet a few warning signs along the cliff to avoid mud slide, do keep away from those sections for your safety.
This was my lunch spot for the afternoon. Since I went on a weekday, there was barely anyone around me. Can’t complain !!
I did approximately 3.5 miles of walk. Take plenty of water on a hot day.
