The Pacifica Land Trust took about 30 guests on a three-hour tour of the headlands above Pedro Point. The property is open to hikers, but difficult to get to. The only access that doesn’t involve crossing private property is a the green gate off Highway 1, just south of the site of the bridge construction to the tunnel site.

But it’s worth the trouble. Even on a foggy day, the views are magnificent.  The Trust’s long-term goal is to transfer the property to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. In the meantime, they’re working to maintain the property, remove invasive species, and improve access.


I’ve always meant to hike there - is it dog friendly?

Several big dogs joined on the hike, so I’m guessing that it is.

Bueno!  Thanks for the post!  =)

How can I go on this hike?  Are there any maps available?  Where do I park, etc? Do I need special permission or anything?.  Thanks for your time.

The entrance to the Pedro Point Headlands is here, across Hwy 1 from the entrance to the tunnel project. You have to park further to the west, and walk to the site. I don’t think it’s possible to enter on the Pacifica side without crossing private property.

Here’s the Google Map. Use Streetview to get a good look at the entrance gate.
