Police have identified the woman who died Sunday morning after falling into a bluff on the Mori Point trail in Pacifica as Yvonne Rogan in Daly town, KRON-TELEVISION reported.

Rogan, 45, was on Rockaway Beach about 50 feet below the trail at 9:40 a.m., police said.

He was found unanswered and pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.

Witnesses said police saw the victim traveling and fell off the trail.

Rogan’s childhood friend Jason Behan told KRON that Rogan recently started hiking as part of a goal to lead a healthy life and was devastated by news.

“She was a good mother. She was a daughter. She was a good wife. She was a good friend. She was all that. They don’t make them like that anymore,” Behan said.

Mori Point juts out several hundred feet into the Pacific Ocean just south of the town of Pacifica and from the top you can take in views from Point Reyes all the way to Pedro Point. The 110-acre site is one of the newest additions to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

The San Mateo County Coroner’s Office and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area were not immediately available to comment on this story.
