Trail runs from here to Half Moon Bay and further. Great walking trail. Dogs and bikes allowed. Great scenery.

Easy trail to find and run, walk, or bike on. Easy parking. Brought my dog and ventured down to a beach below the cliffs after the walk.

Very easy trail. Only things to watch for are golfers and if there's an event going on at the Ritz Carlton

Beautiful views of the cliffs along the Pacific Ocean. Depending on the time of year, you may be able to see whales just off the coast. Passes by the Ritz Carlton.

I use to live next to this and did it many times but the way this is drawn on the southern end it goes across private property. The farm workers never said anything to me and i talked to them at times but beware when you go south of the golf course it's private unless it's changed in the last 3 years.
