Beach and Hike at Half Moon Bay

The SURPAS Sports and Social Committee is planning our next hike…..with a twist. On Sunday, June 4th, we will be heading out to Half Moon Bay for a hike/beach/kayaking day! We will head down to Pillar Point Harbor, which has some beautiful hiking ( on the cliffs above Mavericks Beach ( We’ll setup an area on the harbor side of the beach to congregate. Everyone will be able to hike at their leisure around the trails, for which the trailhead is directly off the beach area, and take turns using kayaks (life jackets etc. will be provided) in the enclosed harbor. 


Pillar Point is about an hour drive over on the Pacific side of the mountains. We will meet at Stanford at 8:00am for carpools or you’re welcome to meet us in Half Moon Bay at your leisure. Please consider driving a carpool if you are able to because we anticipate that we’ll need as much help as we can get to transport everyone out there. 


Dogs are allowed on leash on most of the trails and the harbor considered a good swimming area for dogs ( But remember, any pets will be your responsibility for the entirety of the trip. 


Join us and enjoy a summer smorgasbord with your fellow postdocs!
