San Pedro Valley - Montara Mountain

This 6.9 mile hike starts in San Pedro Valley County Park in Pacifica and climbs up about 1500’ to the peak of Montara Mountain in McNee Ranch State Park. The trail takes us up through woods and chaparral, past a waterfall (which will probably be dry), to great views of the ocean. Dogs are not allowed in these parks.

Getting there:


·  From Highway 1 in Pacifica, turn East on Linda Mar Blvd, drive 2 miles to the end of the road

·  Right on Oddstad Blvd.

·  First left into San Pedro Valley Park. There is a $6 entry fee; register at the entrance kiosk. Restrooms and water are available at trailhead.

Planned Route:

Brooks Falls Trail > Montara Mountain Trail > N. Peak Access Fire Trail > Montara Mountain Trail.

    Hi, I am looking forward to this hike and meeting folks. Since I have not been on a hike yet with this group, do we think this will be about 2 1/2 hours and we will be back by 1, then?

      I estimate 3.5 hours with lunch break, so maybe 1:30.

      Sorry, Deborah, I should have checked how long the hike would be. I already had a commitment that it would make me late for. I hope you all have a great time and I will join soon.

    Hi Dru, I just realized that i have a ticket for the 7:30 pm Alice Walker documentary at the 3rdi Film Festival on November 10. I could still drive to the hike and back to SF; however, you would need to BART back or buy a ticket to Alice Walker or make some other arrangement for the trip back to the East Bay. Let me know what's best for you.
