Many wonderful trails for hiking, biking or horseback riding. Views from San FRancisco to Santa Cruz. You can start at McNee Ranch and hike up and over Montara Mtn and descent into Pacifica - at the end of Adobe Rd. Leave a car at that end and you are all set.

This state park is "Pet Friendly". So bring your dog/s for a walk. After hiking, running or walking, and if you feel like going to the beach.... More
