Secret little coastal hike with unparalleled views of the San Francisco peninsula shoreline. An area of outstanding coastline and natural habitat of several endangered species, the Pedro Point Headlands tower above Linda Mar beach and the southern most point of Pacifica. Now publicly owned, these lands are slowly recovering from dirt-bike use and are gradually being nursed back to health with plans to eventually open series of official trails. Not being well known and without a signpost in sight, if you head up here there's a fair chance you'll have the whole park to yourself!

This is a great short hike. It's about an 1.5 hrs at regular pace. It's mostly tranquil and beautiful. Lots of natural flowers and if it's clear, the view is amazing. It's does provide for some strenuous activities to get you sweating. Very nice hike.
