Thanks to KTVU for letting us know about the amazing super bloom that’s happening RIGHT NOW at Mori Point just south of Pacifica (see map), just about a 20 minute drive south of San Francisco.

At this 110-acre park right on the rugged edge of the coast, you’ll get to see some gorgeous wild flower blooms like Beach Strawberry, plus multiple bright yellow species that look amazing when clustered together including Checkerbloom, Butter Cups, plus, of course, California Gold Fields.

Check out these amazing photographs from @stuinsf taken just a few days ago (and yes, he made sure to stick to the assigned pathways and not to trample on the flowers)

For a great wildflower hike in April and May, check out the Mori Point Peak Loop, an easy 3.2 mile loop that’s great for enjoying sunsets, enjoying the waves crashing the shore and only has a total of less than a 300 foot elevation gain. And on a clear day, you can see all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge.

Walk to the tip of the promontory for stunning views; it’s quite windy on the bluffs so dress accordingly. The cliffs are also notoriously crumbly, so be careful and stay clear of the perilous edges.

Parking is available on Mori Point Road or Bradford Way.
