Rising steeply from rocky seacliffs, McNee Ranch ’s rugged slopes reach an elevation of 1500 feet near Montara Mountain ’s peaks. The 700-acre park includes the saddle between San Pedro Mountain and Montara Mountain. Over this saddle went the Indian trail followed by Gaspar de Portolá’s party in 1769.Later it was the route of early wagon roads between coastal ranches. And in the 20th century the winding old San Pedro Road carried automobiles over the saddle until it was abandoned for the cliff-side Devils Slide route. Today the old road serves as a trail for hikers, bicyclists, and equestrians. This trail guide includes the following trails: Old Pedro Mountain Road to the Saddle, To Montara Mountain’s North Peak, a Short Trip to Gray Whale Cove.
