Explore the most popular dogs on leash trails near Pacifica with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Amazing views of the pacific. A bit close to the highway but a great way to unwind after work.

Only negative is the limited parking, but it’s a great hike!

Beautiful view.

Very nice view, not so difficult even for casual hiker, but prepare a good hiking shoes for small rocks along the trail, and don’t go in a windy day.

this loop is not an easy one- I would rate this as medium difficulty because the trail leads near the cliffs where it's very steep and unstable. once you get past the cliff area and pass Mori Point, it gets easier from there. overall great views and very windy!!

nice view but be prepared for the super strong wind

Moderate hike up to great vista point. A little busy in parts, lots of mountain bikes around. Partly shaded.

Cute, simple hike. Beautiful views! Dog-friendly. I saw a lot of dogs without leashes, but I ALSO saw a garden snake, soooo... I think leashes would be smart if your dog isn't that trained or obedient lol. There was a bunch of ladybugs and dragonflies too! Overall, a fun small hike.

Très jolie balade à 30 min de San Francisco. Dommage d’avoir à longer la route en fin de promenade.

Great hike with wonderful views and some incredible Bay Area history. Not difficult but not flat by any means. A perfect hike for a sunny day in the Bay. This would be a good hike to go on and bring a small picnic with you.

My favorite evening/sunset trail. There's a lot of steep, rocky areas to scramble up so I wouldn't recommend this trail if it rained recently. Beautiful views and not too heavily trafficked (although it's usually empty around sunset).

Nice trail. Easy to moderate areas. Really small parking lot, but other lot near the hotel and beach. Lots of tall grassy areas so watch out for ticks. When we got home, I found a tick on me and in my dog's armpit.

Great training route, the Crack Crack trail near the summit has some challenging terrain.

Part of the loop trail is right next to the road where cars zooming by, which makes the last 5 minutes of our hike unpleasant. Otherwise, good view, nice combination of terrain, and perfect distance for a quick hike.

Steep climb and descent but great views

Definitely not a hard hike! It has some legs that are uphill but apart from that it’s pretty easy. The hike has some insane views when it gets near the ocean. Highly recommend it!

Nice beach w trails

Nice trail and great view of pacific + peninsula once you get to Sweeney ridge

The road to Adobe Drive in Pacifica used to be known as Planet of the Apes Road by mountain bikers. Old road grade from McNee is easy to intermediate viewpoint for a short workout. Leaves out the final leg to Montara Mtn. About 1.5 hours.

Easy to moderate hike with great views. Various steep hill paths that can make this more challenging.

I wouldn't call this a trail. More like a climb on a cliff among slippery rocks. nice views but not at all a hike.

Fun! User/Unmarked trails make it a harder hike.

Just did the loop a long timw ago...

Absolutely beautiful views! There were many amazing viewpoints, especially on the Old Colma Bicycle Route (the 0.8 mile out-and-back part near the water). The area hike was surprisingly varied. Most of the hike was relatively easy, but the switchbacks on Old Colma, and the last 1.5 miles down the Boyscout were more challenging. If you want to make this a moderate difficulty hike, do it as an out and back instead of a loop! The trail is really only ~7 miles, since you can easily walk back to your car along Higgens Way (the street).

The views are beautiful. Usually quite with few people. Also, you can take different pathways to make the hike easy or a little more difficult. Perfect for a nice short hike .

Nice for a quick day trip or exploring

Tough first half
