Where? : Located east of hwy 1 in the town of Pacifica (San Mateo county)
What? : Large park that offer hikes into the ocean mountain range and also picnic tables.
When? : Summer is preferred for picnic but hiking can be done year round.
Due note: Not clear why but unlike most other counties San Mateo county are taking 6$ for car entrance. In many cases, where there no one at the pay station or visitor center you must have the exact change because you need to put this in small envelop.
My thoughts: I visit this park only once in the winter, it was raining and with low clouds so can’t really enjoy the view.
There are large parking lots near the visitor center, maybe/probably this is a popular picnic place for locals at summer.
I visit the park ad Dec. 2020 so during Korona they set the 3 major loop hikes to be one way.
I did the 3.7 miles Hazelnut trail and the 0.8-mile Weiler ranch trail back to the visitor center.
