Half Moon Bay Review

W

elcome to the spring and summer 2012 edition of the Half Moon Bay Review's Coastside Guide. In it you will find comprehensive lists of the best things the Coastside has to offer. Restaurants, hotels, beaches, parks, trails, schools and much more. We've added more things about Pacifica, our northern neighbor, and some interesting facts about Coastside demographics. If only we could fit everything there is to do and see on the Coastside, but then it would be too heavy to carry around. We hope you — local or visitor — find it useful. Please let us know what you think. We certainly welcome your feedback. Special thanks to Beau Gill who provided us the great cover photo of Pillar Point Harbor, the heart of the Coastside.

Beaches Guide  pay parking  camping    popularity   restrooms  surfing

No trip to the Coastside is complete without a glimpse of the Pacific Ocean from one of the many beaches in the area. They range from the wild and craggy to deserted stretches of sand, perfect for a romantic stroll. There is something for the whole family. Don’t miss the well-known tidepools at Fitzgerald Marine Reserve or the lighthouses that mark the region’s northern and southern boundaries. You’ll see surfers, whales and other marine life, depending on the time of the year. And you are virtually guaranteed a good time. See the map in the front of the Coastside Guide for locations. Beaches are listed from north to south.

  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 tunnel construction on Devil’s Slide. Restrooms on steep trail to beach.

 Montara State Beach Very popular when the weather is good, empty if not. Great for hiking and beachcombing, but be careful of the steep drop at the surf. Dangerous swimming. Inconsistent surf, but it can be the best wave on the Coastside if the conditions are right. Restrooms in south parking area.

 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.

 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 bluff

  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. A long paddle out through rocky outcroppings limits the number of surfers, but the wave here can at times be clean and very large. SPRING/SUMMER 2012 Coastside Guide 27

Beaches

  Mavericks Trail from harbor leads past calm beaches popular with dog walkers and kayakers. Beach past breakwater is popular with seaglass hunters. High tide can cover beach with surf and seaweed. Mavericks surfers paddle out from this beach.

  Surfer’s Beach This is the most popular surf spot on the San Mateo County coast 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. Beach disappears at high tide and for much of the winter. Uncrowded but inconsistent surf.

 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 Perhaps 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.

Beaches

 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.

 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. Access point for Cowell-Purisima Coastal Trail.

  Tunitas Creek Beach Wide, wild beach with dramatic cliff views to the north. Few visitors — perhaps because of the difficult, very steep trail down from Highway 1. Best to enjoy from above. Reputation for being ‘sharky.’

  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 Gazos Grill restaurant. SPRING/SUMMER 2012 Coastside Guide 31

Activities

The Coastside’s a great place to play. With the ocean to the west, the hills and mountains to the east, and two great golf courses to the south, there are numerous opportunities to get out and play. At Surfer’s Beach, located just south of Pillar Point Harbor, waves range from a few inches to several feet for surfing. The beach is also a popular spot for ocean kayaking, windsurfing and surf lessons. Along the beach, the paved Coastal Trail stretches some 4.2 miles from the end of Poplar Street in Half Moon Bay to near Pillar Point Harbor and is open to walkers, joggers, bicyclists and skaters. Horseback riding along side this trail is an option as well. Half Moon Bay Golf Links comprises two world-class 18-hole courses. The James Fitzgerald Marine Reserve in Moss Beach is a living museum of sea stars, anemone, algae and other marine life in acres of tide pools. The Half Moon Bay Department of Parks and Recreation is a great resource for classes for kids, youth and adults.

3/19/12 11:32 AM

Hiking + biking The Coastside’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 — 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. hike or bike 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 new addition running between Cowell Ranch and Verde Road is now open to hikers and bikers. McNee Ranch State Jaunting through the 700-acre McNee Ranch State Park, it’s plain to see why the park is one of the Coastside’s top Park 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 Like McNee Ranch, this 1,150-acre park in Pacifica offers incredible ocean vistas at the top of the mountain. A County Park network of short trails, including the 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 This lovely short trail is actually an old farm road. It follows Mills Creek and will lead you by a historic ranch and Ranch State Park 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. Edgewood County Park Edgewood is a San Mateo County park adjacent to Pulgas Ridge and contains 467 acres of land. There are more than and Natural Preserve seven miles of trail within the park and several loops. However, dogs and pets are not allowed, and there are restrictions on bicycles and horses. It is a “park for all seasons,” with pleasant views year-round and beautiful greenery in the spring months. Start at the entrance and follow Edgewood Trail or Sylvan Loop, then choose a path. There are many possible routes at this park, making it a fun place to come back to again and again. To get there from Interstate 280, take the Edgewood Road exit and go west. Park on the south side of Edgewood Road near the freeway or at Cañada and Edgewood roads.

Schools

There are two school districts, Cabrillo Unified School District and La Honda-Pescadero Unified School District, that serve students on the Coastside. In addition, two K-8 private schools are located Coastside. Cabrillo Unified School District The Cabrillo Unified School District, situated between the cities of San Francisco and Santa Cruz on the beautiful Pacific Coastline, serves approximately 3,400 students in pre-kindergarten, K-12, and adult education programs. The District, established on July 1, 1965 and encompassing an area of approximately 135 square miles, consists of four elementary schools—El Granada, Farallone View, Hatch, and Kings Mountain— Cunha Intermediate School, Half Moon Bay High School, and Pilarcitos High School (an alternative education/continuation center). The mission of the Cabrillo Unified School District is to “develop critical thinkers and socially responsible citizens who actively participate in their individual learning and development and are fully prepared to embrace their next challenge… by utilizing our unique natural resources and engaging the entire Coastside community and its partners in providing a rich and academically rigorous curriculum in a safe and nurturing environment.” This mission is more succinctly stated in the Board-adopted motto, “Every Child, Every Day.” The District Office is located at 498 Kelly Ave., Half Moon Bay, and can be reached at 712-7100. Visit the official Cabrillo Unified website at http://www.cabrillo.k12.ca.us/ for additional information. School sites include: Alvin S. Hatch Elementary 490 Miramontes St., Half Moon Bay, 712-7160. School El Granada Elementary 514 Kelly Ave., Half Moon Bay, 712-7150. School Farallone View Elementary 1100 Le Conte Avenue, Montara, 712-7170. School Kings Mountain Elementary 211 Swett Road, Woodside, 712-7180. School Manuel F. Cunha Kelly Avenue and Church Street, Half Moon Bay, 712-7190. Intermediate School Half Moon Bay High School 1 Lewis Foster Drive, Half Moon Bay, 712-7200. Pilarcitos High School 498 Kelly Ave., Half Moon Bay, 712-7224. The La Honda-Pescadero Unified School District is San Mateo County’s largest district in terms of geography, but has the smallest student enrollment. The small size imposes some limitations, but it also means the teacher-student ratio is small enough for individual attention, and the district enjoys a high degree of community involvement and support not typical in larger districts. The district encompasses the South Coast, serving the unincorporated communities of Pescadero, La Honda and Loma Mar with an enrollment of 360 students. The district office is located at 360 Butano Cutoff, Pescadero, and can be reached at 879-0286. It includes: La Honda Elementary School Sears Ranch Road, La Honda. K - 6. 747-0051.

Faith

The Coastside is home to several religious organizations, so visiting guests and newcomers are likely to find just the right place to express their beliefs and congregate with like-minded folks from the community. Sightseers may want to visit some of the older churches in town — like the Community United Methodist Church on the corner of Johnston Avenue and Miramontes Street. Built in 1872, this old church has stainedglass windows that reflect various Coastside themes. Our Lady of the Pillar Catholic Church on Kelly Avenue and Church Street is another landmark sight with more than 125 years of history in Half Moon Bay.

Pacifica

Our neighbor to the north will soon get a little closer when the Devil's Slide tunnel is completed at the end of this year. It is where a lot of Coastside residents head to to shop for certain items, dine in a variety of restaurants or be entertained at venues not found on the Coastside. It is also a very popular destination to for surfers and anglers. Pacifica is a string of communities hugging the coast, each with it's own flavor. Here are a few items that make it unique — and a few of the most popular places to visit.

What’s in a name?

While Pacifica is Spanish for “peace,” the city’s name actually has less romantic roots. It is the result of a contest in 1957 to name the newly incorporated sliver hard by the Pacific Ocean. The inspiration was an 80-foot sculpture by Ralph Stackpole, commissioned for the 1939 Golden Gate International Exposition. Two models of the sculpture remain, one at City Hall and the other in the City Council chambers.

Before Adobe was an software company

The Sanchez Adobe was built in the 1840s from timbers salvaged from a Spanish wreck at Point San Pedro. Today it is the secondoldest structure in San Mateo County and has been a brothel, a hunting lodge, an agricultural shed and farm labor quarters. These days it’s a tourist destination, open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. (650) 359-1462, 1000 Linda Mar Blvd., Pacifica

The first church

The Little Brown Church was Pacifica’s first place of worship, built in 1910 and right along the old Ocean Shore Railroad line. The city of Paficia purchased it some time ago and it served as a police station for a time. Now, a fundraising campaign mounted by the Pacifica Historical Association aims to make it a museum. Learn more at pacificahistory.org

Is that a castle?

Yes it is. San Francisco rail magnate Henry Harrison McCloskey built the bohemouth at 900 Mirador Terrace after his home in the city was damaged in the 1906 earthquake. It’s modeled after wife Emily’s Scottish childhood home. Like the Sanchez Adobe, it has a somewhat sordid history, including service as a bordello and speakeasy before serving as a U.S. Coast Guard barracks. The castle is now in trust and sometimes open for tours. (650) 3550272.

Pier at the ocean

The 1,140-foot L-shaped pier has a name – the Rev. Herschell Harkins Memorial Pacifica Pier (Harkins was the pastor at Little Brown Church) but you don’t need to know the name to ask a local how to get to the pier. The span attracts fishermen from all over the world and the anglers catch Jack smelt, white croaker and striped bass from the pier. You might also see a whale, if you’re there the right time of year. Open daily, 4 a.m. to 10 p.m., weather allowing. (650) 738-3760. SPRING/SUMMER 2012 Coastside Guide 55

Pacifica beaches 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. 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 Milagra Ridge This 239-acre open space is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Located just off Sharp Park Road at College Drive. Hiking is mostly level and paved. Dogs allowed on leash. The entrance to Milagra Ridge is off of Sharp Park Road in Pacifica. From Highway 1, follow Sharp Park Road to the east, or from Skyline Boulevard (Highway 35), follow Sharp Park Road to the west. Turn north on College Drive and continue about 1/4 mile to roadside parking at the Milagra Ridge gate. Mori Point Headlands Originally part of the Spanish San Pedro Land Grant, Mori Point's site has seen many enterprises over the last 120 years. The Mori Point Inn, built in the 1870s,was the last structure on the site. Its colorful history includes a ranch house, hotel, speakeasy, restaurant and dancehall. It mysteriously burned to the ground in 1966. The land itself has been of interest to real estate developers since the early 1900s. The effort to preserve Mori Point is a success story of community involvement. Mori Point was added to the GGNRA in 2000. The park can be accessed from the Rockaway Beach Quarry Trail or along the levee at Clarendon and Beach Blvd. Dogs allowed on leash. 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. San Pedro Valley Park This vast area embraces the middle and south forks of San Pedro Creek's Steelhead spawning grounds. Group picnic areas, nature trail, views of the Brooks Waterfall and a visitors center are featured here. Open 8 a.m. to dusk. In the Linda Mar neighborhood, take Oddstad Blvd. to Rosita Road. $5 entrance fee for cars. 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. SPRING/SUMMER 2012 Coastside Guide 57
