Perfect Shot: Fitzgerald Marine Reserve

Fitzgerald Marine Reserve in Moss Beach is marking its 50th anniversary this year, and while most visitors associate the area with discovering starfish and sea anemones, the Reserve also has several blufftop paths to explore. This Perfect Shot captured by photographer Charles Ginsburgh shows Dardenelle Trail, which leads hikers directly through a grove of Cypress trees, across San Vicente Creek, connecting California Avenue and Cypress Avenue. The Dardenelle Trail also offers stunning shoreline views from the westward-facing bluffs. To learn more about visiting the tidepools and hiking trails of Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, check out
