Half Moon Bay State Beach to Pillar Point Harbor Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Half Moon Bay’s Coastside Trail provides almost 9 miles of developed multiuse trail as part of the California Coastal Trail. This northern segment from the state beach is on a paved surface all the way to the picturesque harbor. The trail connects pristine coastal scrub habitat with residential and commercial neighborhoods.

The northern segment of Half Moon Bay’s Coastside Trail starting at the state beach entrance greets cyclists with a stunning umbrella of cypress trees. The trail threads along the strand of state beaches over four footbridges and across a couple of roads. The first couple of miles are the most serene, with picnic areas on the ocean side and meadows of coastal scrub as a buffer between the Pacific and CA 1."
