Description:  This trail takes us to the site where the Portola Expedition first viewed the San Francisco Bay and to a former Nike missile site.

We will hike down the western slope toward the coast for lunch at Mori Point.

Alternate Meeting Place: Take highway 280 to the Sneath Lane exit (this is near the highway 380 split). The exit loops right up the hill to an intersection where you will turn left on Sneath Lane and follow it out to where the road ends (near Monterey Drive).
