Sweeney Ridge

July 18, 2016
Pacifica, CA
Hikers: Cathy, Laura
Distance: 8.7 miles
Elevation Gain: 1,927 ft.

Pit stop at Rockaway Beach.

Do you mind, I was having a zen moment here.

Nary a soul in the Shelldance Nursery parking lot on a Monday.

Cold, foggy, and windy. 

Defunct Nike Missile site.

Stairs to nowhere.

Very little single track on this hike; but we did see lots of bunnies!

View of the fog. :)

Views seen from this point:

Montara Mountains, Mount Hamilton, Mount Tamalpais, Point Reyes, Farallone Islands, Point San Pedro, Mount Diablo, San Bruno Mountain.

 The fog is beginning to lift!

Back to the Portola Discovery Site. Now the views are partially visible.


San Andreas Lake/Reservoir

Looking back.

Mori Ridge Road, Sweeney Ridge Road, Portola Discovery Site, Baquiano Trail, Farallones View Trail.

We could have made a complete loop, but that would have included a mile and a half walk on the street (Fassler Ave.) which we decided not to do.

No trail maps available at the trailhead.
