Pedro Point Headlands is one of the newest trail systems on the peninsula, including trails which are still under development yet already passable today for hikers.

Featuring unparalleled views of the San Francisco peninsula shoreline, this area of outstanding coastline and natural habitat of several endangered species tower above the surfers of Linda Mar beach at the southern most point of the city of Pacifica.

Recently publically owner, some areas are being gradually nursed back to health from dirtbike previous use, but other areas are unspoiled and secluded.

Main access is from the South side of the park, and you can park in the Devils' Slide parking lot. If that lot is full, you could also check out the parking area near ACE hardware shown on the map. To locate the trail, follow immediately beside Route 1, staying on the right side of the crash barrier, until you see a trail that disappears into the trees.
