If you promise to keep a secret, then we'll tell you about a relatively unknown little coastal hike with unparalleled views of the San Francisco peninsula shoreline. Shhh!

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.

There's nothing stopping responsible hikers from taking full advantage of all the park has to offer, and if you're particularly lucky you might even have the whole mountain to yourself!
