Climb to the top pf San Pedro Mountain. Enjoy scenic views of the surround hills and the Pacific Ocean. A great place to watch the sunset in the summer. This trail is steep and hot, bring lots of water.
Solid trail that starts in trees before climbing out to low lying vegetation and views of Pacifica and the ocean.
Most of the hike is on paved fire road. I prefer softer dirt trails. They're better on your knees and hiking poles. This location seems better for mountain biking with all the cool courses and jumps.
Good hike. The first mile is basically a downhill mountain bike track, jumps, burms and all, so keep your head up and be ready to move. I went on a saturday and there were about a dozen bikers. Other than that, typical bay area hike, good views, some fog, wildflowers, trees.
I love this hike, have done it many times and the views never cease to amaze me!!!
Beautiful hike in Fall. A lot of various trails to take and shade. I would recommend it for intermediate and above.
