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.

Loved how it was broken up into thirds. First part was fairly easy, second more rigorous, and the third leveled out a bit. Gorgeous views of Half Moon Bay and would definitely do it again.

Very steep in some sections. Great workout! Basically a dirt road. Went on a very cloudy day with the sun nowhere in site. As soon as I got to the top it was a sunny day. Amazing.
