Pedro Point Coastal Trail

The Pedro Point Coastal Trail project is a trail planning project in coastal San Mateo County.  The proposed trail would connect the City of Pacifica with the Devil’s Slide Trail and open space at Pedro Point Headlands via a multi-use pathway that provides a beautiful, easy-to-use alternative to Highway 1, completing this gap in the Coastal Trail. This map shows the approximate proposed alignment of the trail.

A Feasibility Study/Conceptual Design was conducted by the Coastal Conservancy from 2019-2020 to look at route options for the Pedro Point Coastal Trail. The report is available by request by emailing hilary.walecka (at) scc.ca.gov (as the Conservancy works to remediate its website contents to make materials accessible to Californias of all abilites).

The next steps needed to turn this trail from a plan into reality include developing detailed design and engineering plans; conducting further community engagement; developing environmental documentation; acquiring permits; fundraising; and partnering with a park agency to manage to the trail.​
