Mussel Rock is a rocky formation seaward the Daly City, on the coastline of San Mateo County, California. Mussel Rock encompasses a large rock and several smaller rocks of a specific kind as a pile pattern, in which the Rocky headland is roughly eroded, leaving small islands. The region above Mussel rock contains precipitous ridges. This area experiences recurring landslides, menacing the residents in a subsection above this area. Mussel Rock is majorly known for being the spot that is nearest to the epicenter of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake, the place where the San Andreas Fault penetrates the San Francisco Peninsula from the northwest.
The adjoining area is a community park. The Mussel Rock Park comprises lots of trails linked to the Paragliding launch pads on a hillside in the South of Daly City. At the North end of the park, a sandy beach can be spotted. The parking area is at the end of Westline Drive. You have to move towards the north from the parking area to enter the park. There's also a man-made rock arch, which is accessible at the time of low tides.
