This was a beautiful coastal hike on a paved road. This former section of the highway has been turned into a hiking and biking trail. There are small parking lots immediately north and south of the tunnel to park your car.
The trail is beautiful, new, and comfortable to walk, hike, run, and bike. There is a story told by the signs along the trail of the ecological recovery of this area that is facinating. Invasive pampas grass has been remove allowing native California lilac to return.
Hours of operation:
Monday – Friday: 8:00 am – 6:00 pm
The winding, paved trail is almost exactly one mile long, so you can knock out two miles back and forth. There are many vantage points for whale watching, and many have benches so you can rest and each a bit of lunch. San Mateo Parks and Rec have docents on site who are friendly and full of interesting information.
Great views of the Pacific with the possibility of seeing whales !!
