Mixed use trail network on Golden Gate National Regional Park Land (designated open space). Accessible from North via breakwater on south end of the Pier beach walkway, from the east at Moose Lodge gates, from the south via Quarry bike/walking path. Great training ground with lots of possibility for BMX and XC riders. Oceanside cliffs with single track, big drop ins on bluffs, rocky sections on south side (bordering Rockaway Quarry) and scenic beauty all add up to a great place to go for an hour of training and conditioning for the beginner to imaginative advanced rider.

Because it's open space and mixed use, riders should be sensitive to trail conditions (weather, dog walkers, hikers and the occasional horseback rider). Erosion on the cliffs is the biggest hazard to all users of this area.

Summary:
I started on these trails on a Hardtail XC bike 3 years ago and never grew bored. I've since upgraded to a FS Trail bike and have continued to enjoy these trails.

What's to like: very accessible, great scenery and challenge for different skill levels; with some planning, you can do several different loops in the same session in under an hour and be challenged both technically and aerobically.

What's not to like: many hikers and dog walkers at peak times, could be considered a bore for the unimaginative rider. While it does have a couple of loop options that cover a wide variety of terrain, you have to know the trails and think ahead to get the most of the session; some may find this a negative.


Recommended Route:
Be creative and try a different access point the first few rides. Some climbs are more fun as descents, while others are just rutted fire roads that take you to where you'd rather ride. I enjoy a figure 8 route that starts and ends in the marshy north side. Start up the fire road west to first tier. Then follow trail east and up around the main hill of the Point. At the cross road, head south down a single track and then immediately up the quarry side (rocky and rutted single track) up to second tier. Then I either head north up to the top of the hill (great cardio and great views) or head west to the cliffs above the cove. There's a single track on north side that traverses the cliff and connects with the west side trail near Nike Missile site. Follow the trail north to the first tier and finish down one of the fire trails to marsh. Also some great drop ins on first tier on north west face of hillside. Look and you'll see some great lines there.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Montara Mountain: all trails up there are more aerobically challenging, more scenic and more dangerous on the descents...all of which add up to an overall better experience!
But like Mori, Montara has something for everyone (from newbies to pros).
