San Francisco garter snake

The Lishumsha Trail takes visitors from the flat Old Mori Road Trail up the hill toward the blufftops at Mori Point.

"Lishumsha" is the local Ohlone Native word for "garter snake"--an allusion to the endangered San Francisco garter snake that is protected at Mori Point, and which is making a comeback thanks to habitat restoration efforts of Parks Conservancy staff and volunteers.
