SF to Half Moon Bay


We are planning this route for May.

Here is what we came up with so far.

Can someone chime in to let us know if we are the on the right path?

We are starting from Thornton Beach on May 20th. We will arrive Half Moon Bay Tues, May 22nd.

Thanks in advance.

 Looks like we will have to go inland to residential streets at Daisaku Ikeda Canyon due to limited beach access safely. That detail seems to be missing from the route directions on page 139 of Walkabout Northern California.  Daisaku Ikeda Canyon is north of Mussel Rock.  After Mussel rock we will come to Mori point: see detail of route on the parksconservancey map below.


shelldance orchid gardens  (see on detail of google maps of mori point area) might be of interest if we feel we have time to check it out.  https://www.yelp.com/biz/shelldance-orchid-gardens-pacifica


Follow caldera creek trail down to rockaway beach and Best Western lighthouse hotel.105 Rockaway Beach Ave, Pacifica, CA 94044  (650) 355-6300   About 7.2 miles first day


Day 2: Follow directions in book that takes us along a bike path along San Pedro Creek and onto Old San Pedro Mountain rd which is shown on the map below.

Also copy this map: https://parks.smcgov.org/sites/parks.smcgov.org/files/Devils-Slide-Map.pdf

UT oH, looks like the remainder of route might not have copied. 

Will try later.

Thanks for reading and posting any suggestions.
