Coastside Trail Scouting Hike Description:

Location: Gray Whale Cove trailhead, just north of Montara

This is a scouting hike, so route/distances may vary. Expect some amount of hiking on beach/sand and a decent pace (~2.5 mph). Idea is to do a car shuttle to south of Half Moon Bay, and hike north along the coast, -with a possible trip up Montara mountain-.

Here is the leader, Dara.

It is the Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay. I felt we were walking on a yellow brick road heading to a castle where an evil witch lived. And, maybe I was a scarecrow (brainless).

As morning fog is lifted, Montara mountain became clearly visible from the coastal trail.

The forest just before the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve always gave me eerie feeling. I don't know why.

They are not dead. They are sleeping, I think.

I think those hays are used in upcoming Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival.
