Walk along the shore at Pacifica State Beach. A great place for joggers and beach goers. A great location for shore birds, and soaking up the rays.

The trail was beautiful but the address in the App is misleading! Instead look for Breakers Resturant there is plenty of public parking all around. Also the trail is not a loop

I did the upper loop portion of this. It is NOT easy. If you stay on the asphalt, it is. But when you leave the asphalt and turn up the hill at the lower portion of the loop, it is a steep uphill with dirt, loose rocks and a big cliff to the left. I was on all fours briefly, scrambling up and fearing for my life. Granted, I’m not as young and nimble as I used to be. And I’m prone to vertigo. But no way was that easy. I can’t imagine someone trying that with little kids or poor health. Also, at the north end of the loop, the trail peters out. I wasn’t willing to bushwhack that poison-oak-lined rabbit trail, so I backtracked and took the trail that cuts across the middle of the loop. On the plus side, beautiful views and some wildflowers still in late June.

Easy-peasy Trail. Lots of wildflowers and wonderful views of the ocean and Pacifica beaches and neighboring mountains. Great views from Rockaway Point. Lots of places to eat and drink once you’re done hiking!

Nice little up and down through the quarry and very dog friendly. Could do low grade stroll or scramble up some rocky hills along the coast. Beautiful views of the Pacific

Good to take your small dogs, not very long, but beautiful, specially when you go through the shelter cove (private properties) but there is a short trail back.

Another forgotten trail. I lived in nearby Half Moon Bay for 5 years and enjoyed doing these little coastal gems.

Nice little beach and walk any time the surf isn't up. When the surf is good it's crowded. Not too many years ago a couple of people stole a boat from one of the marinas and it ended up being beached here one day we were walking it. Craziest and dumbest city government anywhere to allow a Taco Bell to be built on this beach.

Linda Mar is my favorite area in Pacifica, CA. And the classiest Taco Bell in America...talk about a view. If I ever wanted to learn to surf, I'd go there.
