During our time off at the end of the year, we decided to stay local and do a few hikes and exploration of cities near by. One day we decided to do an easy but scenic hike in Half Moon Bay. We started by parking at the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve to check out the sea life. Unfortunately it was the winter and nothing was really around for us. The only wildlife was Betty:
We continued our hike through bluff trail where the sun was making incredible sun rays.
Below was one of the viewpoints from the trail, it was amazing.
Walking through these lined trees was like something out of a movie.
As we made it past the Moss Beach Distillery, we got a nice view of the Pillar Point Air Force Station and just around that is home of the famous Maverick’s Surf Competition at Maverick’s Beach.
This is the trail leading to Pillar Point… completely unshaded.

Overall, it was a wonderful calm paced hike with a bunch of neat things to see. We hung out on the beach, walked by a few inn’s and diners that attract many tourists and had spectacular views of the ocean. I would highly recommend this hike/walk as a quick exercise and getaway. We at lunch at Barbara’s Fish Trap which had great fresh seafood and is right on the water. While waiting, we walked out to the end of the pier and watched people fishing and crabbing.
Finally, here was our route:
