Mori Bluff Trail


Meditation on the bluffs at Mori Point

At the end of the Old Mori Road Trail, at the west end of Mori Point, you'll come to the intimidating sight of the Bootlegger's Steps. If you can, take a deep breath and power through, because you'll be rewarded at the top with a seascape to rival the best scenery of Big Sur. The bluffs are especially gorgeous in winter, when they're painted copper and bronze by the low rays of sunset.

As you skirt the bluff trail, please watch your step and take care to steer well clear of the edge, as the cliffs are notoriously crumbly!
