Acquired by the City of Pacifica and the California Coastal Conservancy over 10 years ago, Pedro Point Headlands is intended to become part of the Golden Gate National Park (GGNRA) and a crucial trail nexus tying together the southern Corral de Tierra-McNee Ranch State Park complex with Pacifica’s coastal trail and other GGNRA park lands. Although still not part of the GGNRA, Pedro Point Headlands is increasingly used by the public as a recreational resource.
