COASTSIDE GUIDE 41
There are so many beaches in San Mateo County. We have tried to highlight the majority of them here, from north to south, but there are plenty more unamed and out of the way. Each one has its own distinct character and charm. Some are easily accessible and popular for sunbathing and family picnics. Others are wild and remote and good for those looking for solitude. Whatever your preference, the beauty of the ocean and clean sand will be your reward. Look for whales and coastal birds as both are in abundance! But just be sure to bring a sweater. This isn’t southern California!
42 COASTSIDE GUIDE Spring 2018
GUIDE PAY PARKING CAMPING POPULARITY RESTROOMS SURFING
Sharp Park This long stretch of sand reaches from Mori Point all the way to the pier. Choose to picnic on the sand or stretch you legs on the popular promenade. Visit the pier for views, fishing and facilities. Dogs on leash.
Linda Mar The most popular beach in Pacifica, Linda Mar is also the most popular surf spot from San Francisco to Santa Cruz. Good for beginners to experts depending on the day. Long beach for walks. Park in several lots, some require payment.
Gray Whale Cove An unofficial clothing-optional spot (at the north end), there is parking across the street. Don’t leave valuables in the car — thefts are reported often. Just south of of the tunnel. Portable restroom on steep trail to beach. About 100 stairs lead down to this breaktaking spot.
Montara State Beach A Coastside favorite because of the wide open beach and beautiful views of Montara Mountain. Great for walks and beachcombing. Leashed dogs allowed on beach. Restrooms in south parking area. Popular surf spot, but not recommended for beginners.
Montara Lighthouse Beach A small beach accessed through the Montara hostel/lighthouse station. Historic fog signal dates back to 1875. Secluded and scenic, but not accessible if gate is closed at lighthouse. No facilities.
Fitzgerald Marine Reserve When the ocean rolls back the tides, another world is revealed in pools that attract the curious from all over the Bay Area. Look but don’t touch! Restrooms and visitor center in small parking lot. Walking trail on bluffs above beach.
Seal Cove Secluded beach underneath the Moss Beach Distillery. Can be a great swimming beach, especially at low tide. Reef blocks large waves creating a relatively calm lagoon. Can be lots of seaweed. Beautiful trail on blufftop though cypress forest.
Ross’s Cove This is the hidden half-moon just north of the famous Mavericks break. It can be tricky getting to the beach, but worth the effort. Park at Mavericks parking lot and head up and over the hill to well worn trail. Experienced surfers only.
Mavericks Known more for giant waves than the beach, nevertheless, beach can be beautiful retreat at low tide. Trail from harbor leads past calm beaches popular with dog walkers and kayakers. Don't expect to see famous waves in any season than late fall or winter. Spring 2018

WATERCOLOR MAPS: MAPS.STAMEN.COM
Surfer’s Beach This is the most popular surf spot in Half Moon Bay and usually the most crowded beach when the weather is good. At high tide, beach can disappear completely. Erosion has removed much of the golden sand that can be found at other spots.
Miramar Beach Accessed by a short staircase near the Miramar Beach Restaurant. Limited parking but can be a nice spot when Surfer’s Beach gets crowded. Restroom located near Coastal Trail.
Alcatraz South of the bridge at Miramar. Access is best from Mirada Road, down the Coastal Trail. Old stairs are washed out. Shifting sand bars can sometimes create good surf. Careful though: at low tide, pillars from old pier can be exposed.
Roosevelt Beach The northern end of four miles collectively known as “Half Moon Bay State Beach.” Access at Young Avenue. Turn right at kiosk and travel slowly down access road. Large parking lot and pit toilets. Uncrowded most of the year.
Dunes Beach Pretty, quiet beach with paid parking available. You may see surfers or just those who love a long walk on the beach. Access at Young Avenue, straight through the kiosk. Flush toilets. Trail down to beach. Good spot to park and explore Coastal Trail.
Venice Beach The end of Venice Boulevard opens into a beach operated by the state. Multiple, large parking areas. Flush toilets. Stairs to beach at northern lot, but you may need to ford creek to get to the sand. Remember: gates close at sunset.
Francis State Beach One of the busiest of Coastside beaches, there is ample paid parking and access to the Coastal Trail. At the end of Kelly Avenue. Popular for surfing and picnics. Large camping area for RVs, cars, and cyclists. Ranger station and visitor center.
Poplar Beach Wide and often uncrowded beach south of downtown Half Moon Bay. Metered parking. Steep, dirt trail leads down to wide open beach. Great spot to access Coastal Trail. Popular beach for equestrians to ride along.
Redondo Beach Sweeping views from the bluffs but a difficult scramble down eroded cliffs to the beach. Seldom visited but good way to access the RitzCarlton segment of Coastal Trail to the south.
COASTSIDE GUIDE 45
Ocean Colony Beach You don’t need to stay at the Ritz-Carlton to utilize this beach. Park just before entering resort property on Miramontes Point Road. Beach is tucked under the golf course. Stairs down to beach.
Cowell Ranch Located south of Half Moon Bay, Cowell begins with a half-mile trail to the point and then 150 stairs to a well-protected sandy beach. Restroom at lot and at beach. Permanent view scope on bluff. Nothern access point for 3 mile Cowell-Purisima Coastal Trail.
Martin’s Beach The debate continues to rage over access to this hidden cove. One thing is not debateable — It is one of the most beautiful beaches in California. Status has been influx. Park along highway and walk down half-mile road.
Tunitas Creek Beach Wide, wild beach with dramatic cliff views to the north. Poor access with a very steep trail down from Highway 1. This beach is best for viewing from the bluffs. Pack your trash if you do find your way to the sand!
San Gregorio State Beach There is enough driftwood to build a vacation home on this mile-long sandy beach at the mouth of the San Gregorio Creek. Restrooms and picnic area. At the intersection of Highway 84 and 1.
Pomponio State Beach Plenty of parking and picnic tables make this South Coast beach a perfect place for a barbecue with family. This day-use facility features a small lagoon and roaring surf.
Pescadero State Beach Rocky coves and tidepools. Popular with fishermen. Across the highway is Pescadero Marsh Natural Preserve, a popular spot for bird watchers and other naturalists. Several parking areas.
Bean Hollow State Beach Beautiful horseshoe shaped cove with plenty of tidepools to the north. Look for the self-guided nature trail — and keep your eyes open for sea urchins, crab and other marine life. Small, powerful waves can break right onshore.
Gazos Creek Beach Abundant tidepools dot a beach that is now part of the Año Nuevo State Reserve. The reserve also includes Cascade Ranch. Parking is across from the Highway 1 Brewery.

COASTSIDE GUIDE 47
Fitzergald Marine Reserve, in Moss Beach, harbor seals including newborn pups. Jamie Soja / Review
The Coastsideâ€™s scenic beauty has a funny way of grounding people while simultaneously elevating them to new heights. Many of us have chosen life on the coast because we are drawn magnetically to the pristine beauty that surrounds us. The rolling surf bleeds into the beach; the sand meets a barrier of bluffs that protect the community from the sea. A short distance from the shore, gentle slopes grow into grassy foothills, eventually rising to mountainous peaks â€” all within walking, biking or riding distance. Spring and summer are the ideal seasons to explore this region. What follows should not be mistaken for an all-inclusive list of Coastside retreats. It focuses on day hikes for those traveling on foot, but includes great ideas for cyclists, equestrians and overnight campers.

TRAILS FOR HIKERS AND BIKERS
The Coastal Trail One of the Coastside’s premier projects, this beautiful trail officially starts at Coronado Street in El Granada on the undeveloped land called Mirada Surf West, just south of the jetty at Pillar Point Harbor. It winds through Miramar and Half Moon Bay, ending officially just south of Poplar Avenue. Informal pieces of the trail run through Moss Beach, Princeton and the harbor as well. Very popular with locals, the Coastal Trail is open to those traveling by foot, bicycle or (at least in parts) by horse. Expect traffic, as this trail is usually busy. A newer addition running between Cowell Ranch and Verde Road is open to hikers and bikers on the weekends. McNee Ranch State Park Jaunting through the 700-acre McNee Ranch State Park, it’s plain to see why the park is one of the Coastside’s top hiking destinations. Situated near Montara Mountain, the land provides breathtaking ocean and hillside views for reasonable effort. Take the San Pedro Mountain Road north across the park for a 6.4-mile round trip hike. This route was the one used before it was replaced by Devil’s Slide. For a steep climb, start from Highway 1 and take the North Peak Access Road. The round trip is 7.6 miles. If you’re in the mood for a shorter trek, try the path to Gray Whale Cove, two miles round trip. To get to McNee Ranch State Park, take Highway 1 north from Half Moon Bay. Just north of Montara State Beach you’ll find an entrance and plenty of parking. Open to hikers, equestrians and cyclists. San Pedro Valley County Park Like McNee Ranch, this 1,150-acre park in Pacifica offers incredible ocean vistas at the top of the mountain. A network of short trails, including the 50 COASTSIDE GUIDE Spring 2018
easy, 400-foot Plaskon Nature Trail and the 0.6-mile Brooks Falls Overlook Trail, make the park an ideal outing for families. If you’d like to hike a little farther, try the 2.1-mile each way Montara Mountain Trail, or the Hazelnut Trail, 3.7 miles one way. Most of the park is wheelchair accessible, and there is one bicycle trail (Weiler Ranch Road), plus several equestrian trails. To get there, take Highway 1 from the south end of Pacifica and turn east on Linda Mar Boulevard to the park entrance. Burleigh Murray Ranch State Park This lovely short trail is actually an old farm road. It follows Mills Creek and will lead you by a historic ranch and barn. Two miles round trip to the barn, four miles round trip to the water tanks. Trails for equestrians, hikers and cyclists: From the intersections of highways 1 and 92, go south on Highway 1 for 1.2 miles to Higgins Purisima Road. Turn east and go 1.7 miles to the park entrance, where you’ll find parking. Purisima Creek Trail This old county road used in the 19th century follows Purisima Creek through steep canyons. It’s quiet, wide, and 8.4 miles round trip. Alternatively, you might make a loop from the North Ridge Trail or Harkins Ridge Trail and return on the Whittemore Gulch Trail for a vigorous 6.8-mile trip. Or, from the Higgins Purisima entrance, try the challenging 9.1mile loop: take Purisima Creek Trail to the Soda Gulch Trail, connect with Harkins Ridge Trail, the North Ridge Trail and then end with Whittemore Gulch Trail. Some trails are open only for hikers; others are open to equestrians and cyclists. There is even a 1/4-milelong trail, funded by the Peninsula Open Space Trust, for the physically limited. Access the preserve from either Higgins Purisima Road or Skyline Boulevard 6.5 miles south of Highway 92.
TRAILS Cowell-Purisima Trail The trail offers spectacular views of the ocean and the gently sloping foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains. The northern end of the trail begins above a small state-managed pocket beach at Cowell State Beach and continues southward across three bridges and past rich, productive farm fields to a bluff-top overlook. The trail is open to hikers and cyclists and, with the exception of a section that passes through the steep banks of Purisima Creek, is accessible to wheelchairs. Access is just south of Miramontes Point Road or along Hwy. 1. Quarry Park Quarry Park is a 40 acre community park in beautiful El Granada. The park features a large family picnic meadow with tables and barbecue pits, next to a play area for toddlers (the “Tot Lot”). The Treehouse, built in 2008, functions as a play structure, conversation area, or stage. Beyond the Meadow, a dirt road leads to the quarry floor and up to a view site overlooking Princeton Harbor. A network of trails winds through Quarry Park and the adjoining Wicklow open space area. Quarry Park is open from sunrise to sunset. There is no charge for parking or for park entrance. El Corte de Madera Creek Open Space Preserve Thirty-six miles of multi-use trail are available for exploration at this 2,817-acre Preserve. While this Preserve is extremely popular with bicyclists, it also has lots of hearty hiking and horseback riding opportunities. Visitors to the Preserve will find mixed evergreen and redwood forests, creekside trails,
coastal and forest views, and special features, such as rare sandstone formations. Devil's Slide Trail Opened in late March 2014, this paved mile and a half long trail is actually the former Highway 1 before it was diverted into the Tom Lantos Tunnels. Magnificent views of the Pacific and, on a clear day, the Farallon Islands. Rest areas and interpretive signs are welcome additions for visitors. Wide, paved roadway is suitable for walkers, bikers, strollers etc., but the hills are challenging. Limited parking on the north and south sides. Access is from either Pacifica or Montara. HIKERS ONLY Año Nuevo State Reserve People come from around the world to experience this treasured coastal strip, many of them hoping to glimpse the reserve’s most famous attraction elephant seals in action. Año Nuevo is a three-mile round trip to the Año Nuevo Point. It’s an easy hike until you get to the sand, where there are dunes that make the trek more challenging. There is beach access for disabled people. Bicyclists and equestrians prohibited. From Northern Elephant Field, with binoculars, you might spot elephant seals, which molt during the spring and summer. No pets allowed. Permits are free and you get them at the entrance station from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. South on Highway 1, 30 miles from Half Moon Bay. Butano State Park Located in a quiet, woody canyon, this park is a

THE COASTAL TRAIL
The heart of the coastal trail Besides one short dirt section near surfers beach and a shared road in Miramar, the trail from the harbor to Seymour Bridge just past Poplar Avenue is an unbroken, paved flat path that can accomodate runners, walkers, bikers, skaters and wheelchairs. The trail can be accessed in several locations. Distance from Poplar Beach to the harbor is about 4.5 miles.
One of the most popular and celebrated features of the Coastside is a coastal path that connects many of our local communities, parks and beaches. The surface varies from dirt, to gravel to asphalt. From the easily accessible Mirada West to the beautiful and remote Cowell-Purisima trail, visitors and locals utilize the path for exercise, relaxation and commuting.

PILLAR POINT HARBOR After World War II, Coastside citizens petitioned Congress to provide a harbor for the fishing fleet. Between 1959 and 1961, a breakwater was constructed that formed Pillar Point Harbor. Since that time, the harbor has been an active boating area for both commercial and recreational uses. Here are some things you need to know about the local harbor in order to make your stop worth your while.

More than just pet care Your Dog’s Home away from home
Whether you are a dog person or a cat lover, the Coastside is great place for animals. While some area are restricted to bring your dog along, there are plenty of spots where on-leash dogs are welcome, and even a few where you can legally let them run free.
Packages To Meet Your Dogs Every Need
Half Moon Bay Dog Park While most of the state beaches and state parks on the Coastside allow leashed dogs, there is a hidden gem of a dog park near Smith Field that allows your canine friend to roam freely in a large, 75’ x 225’ fenced in area. Covered with bark chips, the open area is great for playing ball or letting Fido socialize with other dogs. A small out building provides a sitting area for owners. Water, bags and a restroom are on location as well. The unique park is run completely by volunteers. If your pooch still has energy, put him back on the leash and head to the bluff tops just west of the dog park for miles of trails and sweeping ocean views. Remember to clean up after your pet. Unlicensed dogs or those under 4 months old are not permitted in the Half Moon Bay Dog Park.
• Comfortable inside boarding areas with access to the outdoors • Complete Grooming Services • Playcare/Daycare - Intimate Groups • DOG SOCIALS – First Saturday of every month • Expert Training & Puppy Classes • Basics: Manners, Sit, Down, Come, Stay, Heel and loose leash work. • Intermediate and Advanced: off-leash work, hand signals, distractions, trust and safety building exercises.

TRAILS EQUESTRIAN FRIENDLY
Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space This preserve contains a 21-mile network of challenging trails through canyons and ridges under a balcony of redwoods. Think about browsing through a guidebook before heading out — the trail possibilities are many. Windy Hill Open Space Preserve The trails are distinct, and the views incredible. Park at the designated parking area on Skyline Blvd., 14.8 miles south of Highway 92. The Spring Ridge Trail is open to bikers, horses, hikers and dogs. Big Basin Redwoods State Park Established in 1902, Big Basin is California’s oldest state park, and consists of over 18,000 acres of old-growth and recovering redwood forest. Trails range from easy to moderate, with options for hikers, backpackers, cyclists and equestrians. To get to Big Basin, take Skyline Boulevard (Hwy. 35) to Hwy. 9, and then take Big Basin Way to the Ranger Station.
Sam McDonald County Park This easily overlooked 850-acre park lies about 3 miles west of La Honda on Pescadero Creek Road. With its network of trails, the park offers equestrian adventurers a place to stretch their horses’ legs. To get to the park, Take Highway 1 to Pescadero Creek Road. Then go east 11 miles to the park entrance. Russian Ridge Open Space Preserve In the spring, Russian Ridge is one of the best places to view wildflowers in the area.

Hikers, bicyclists and equestrians permitted; no dogs allowed. The entrance to Russian Ridge can be accessed by taking Skyline Boulevard (Highway 35) 19.7 miles south of Highway 92.

HALF MOON BAY At the heart of the San Mateo County Coastside lies the historic and unique downtown of Half Moon Bay. The iconic Main Street is a thriving center for restaurants, art galleries, unique shops, and pocket parks. City Hall is situated in a an old bank building and the newly renovated Mac Dutra Plaza has become a great spot for people watching or taking a break from a downtown exploration. The Half Moon Bay Review office, also in a downtown historic building, is the home of the local newspaper and is worth a visit. Pop in to the Chamber of Commerce for some tourist information to help you plan your visit.
Mac Dutra Plaza is the geographic center of downtown and is a great respite.

COASTSIDE GUIDE 75
PESCADERO Pescadero is one of the oldest communities in San Mateo County and is surrounded by open space, ranches, wetlands and sweeping beaches. In the crowded San Francisco Bay Area, Pescadero and nearby San Gregorio are refreshingly off the radar.
Where: The hub of the South Coast is located about 15 miles south of Half Moon Bay, about a mile east of Highway 1. What’s special: To step into Pescadero is to step back in time in a community that combines a rural flavor with the modern world. Residents enjoy access to the nearby beach and Pescadero Marsh, which is a favorite haunt of bird lovers. Its downtown is a favorite among Silicon Valley daytrippers looking for a quick getaway. Dining: Foodies love Pescadero. There is the venerable Duarte’s Tavern and its beloved pies and artichoke soup and Harley Farms’ delicate and one-of-a-kind cheeses. Don’t forget Arcangeli Grocery Co. and Norm’s Market, which is well-known for its country-style breads. Tucked inside the town’s only gas station is a nationally recognized taqueria. Odds and ends: Pescadero has many caring residents. One of its most active civic organizations is Puente de la Costa Sur. Puente is a nonprofit that provides safety-net services for many in the surrounding rural communities.

If Pacifica is a bedroom community, it certainly has a lovely west-facing picture window. Nearly 40,000 people live along the northern stretch of San Mateo County coastline, drawn by an easy commute and the Pacific Ocean. It’s divided roughly into about a dozen neighborhoods, from Fairmont in the north to Park Pacifica in the south. Unlike, the towns to the south of Devil’s Slide, Pacifica has a more dense, suburban feel. And that’s not bad: City residents benefit from an array of municipal services, including police and parks.

Surf culture Like many beach towns in California, Pacifica lays claim to significant surf spots. Linda Mar State Beach is the most popular surf spot on the San Mateo County coast. It can be a great spot to learn but the winter swell can bring in large waves. More advanced surfers might take on Rockaway Beach and Sharp Park Beach. Pacifica has six annual surf competitions and a number of surf shops from Crespi Boulevard to Pedro Point.
Beaches History Perhaps the two most inviting coastal spots in Originally, the city was home to a pair of Ohlone Pacifica are Rockaway Beach and Linda Mar Indian villages, one on San Pedro Creek and the other State Beach. on Calera Creek, near what is now the Rockaway Rockaway is south of the Pacifica Pier and is a Beach neighborhood.

Pacifica is rich in history with plenty of places for the family to play.
Surf’s up Pacifica is one of the most popular surfing destinations in Northern California and provides great inspiration for photographers. This image was captured by Bradley Wittke. See more of his work at pacificagallery.com.
vantage in the spring, and bring your dog — as long as you pack the leash. Pacifica Pier Looking for a good place to see the waves? You might try Pacifica Pier, 2100 Beach Blvd. In the winter months, huge waves crash on the pier, but even when the water is calm there is likely to be plenty to see. You might see crabbers working the pylons or simply bikers and walkers getting some exercise by the ocean. Sanchez Art Center The art center at 1220-B Linda Mar Blvd. is one of the cultural gems of San Mateo County. The gallery is open to the public from 1 to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday. There is a full schedule of exhibits and receptions throughout the year at a center funded by grants, donations and other private sources.
Linda Mar is also known as Pacifica State Beach. Located at the southern end of Pacifica, this crescentshaped beach is one of the most popular surfing spots in Northern California. Showers, bathrooms and a large, paved parking area make it a very convenient destination. Rockaway Rockaway Beach is tucked between Linda Mar and Sharp Park. Popular for experienced surfers and beach walkers. Restaurants and hotels make this quite a popular spot for visitors.
84 COASTSIDE GUIDE Spring 2018
Sharp Park Beach The Pacifica Pier is the most prominent feature of this long beach. The area includes picnic facilities, a walking promenade and vistas of Mori Point Headlands.
PARKS AND TRAILS
Frontierland Park Tucked away on a hillside in Park Pacifica, Frontierland Park is a true Bay Area gem. Large sloping lawns and an extensive children’s playground make it a popular spot for birthday parties, events and family fun. Barbecue areas and picnic sites available. Located at the top of Yosemite Dr. in the back of Linda Mar. Free parking. Sweeney Ridge This federally protected hiking area of ridges and ravines between San Bruno and Pacifica offers steep and rolling coastal hills overlooking the San Francisco Peninsula. On a clear day views of the Farallon Islands, Mt. Tamalpais, Point Reyes and Mt. Diablo can be seen. The trail is open to hikers, equestrians and bicyclists from 8 a.m. to dusk. The driveway leading up to the trailhead in the Shelldance Nursery lot is a bit obscure. Follow it to the large, gravel parking lot where a large GGNRA sign resides in the northwest corner, marking the area as Sweeney Ridge.
