McNee Ranch State Park is located on the San Francisco Peninsula in San Mateo County, approx. 20 miles south of San Francisco and eight miles north of Half Moon Bay on Highway One. The highest point in this park rises to 1,898 feet above sea level, and contains extensive biodiversity where endangered species such as Hickman's potentilla, San Mateo thornmint, and Acanthomintha duttonii are found. On clear days the summit provides spectacular views of much of the San Francisco Bay Area. There are two beach access points from the bluff area. One access is across from Second Street. The second access is located about a half-mile north on the ocean side of Highway 1. Please note that the paths down to the beach are steep. Park closes at sunset.

Excellent hike with breathtaking views. We did it with our 3y old and he was comfortable walking. Note that at this time, it's muddy and not stroller friendly with very uneven path. Plan accordingly.

Strenuous uphill with terrific views. Looped over to Grey Whale Cove hike as well.

Always my favorite easy hike in HMB.
