We did this hike on a weekend, 6/21 but weather wasn't the best. BUT this Monday it's forecasted to be SUPER WARM....so I'm thinking it would be a perfect afternoon for a pre-dinner hike.
If it's a clear day, you will see nice views of the Bay area, hill & ridge views & Pacifica. May see some different wildflowers, birds, and bunnies.
If you are late, you can catch up. There is only one way up: Sneath trail 1.8 miles paved before we connect to a 2nd trail.
ABOUT THE PARK
Sweeney Ridge is a hilly hiking area of ridges and ravines between San Bruno and Pacifica, about a 25-minute drive south from San Francisco. The ridge’s 1,200-foot-high summit, covered with coastal scrub and grassland, slopes down to the bay on one side and to the Pacific on the other.
Wildlife at Sweeney Ridge includes hawks, deer, and a plethora of both native and introduced spring wildflowers. The sandy coastline and adjacent wind-protected valley of Thornton State Beach are good venues for picnicking, beach walking, surf fishing, and flying remote-control gliders.

PARKING & DIRECTIONS
Take Sneath Lane all the way up to the end. (101 El Camino Exit).
There are spaces for about 12 cars right outside the gate; however there have known to have car break-ins on occasion.
Suggest you park in the residential area where Sneath Lane ends. (abt 100 feet before you reach the trail-head gate). Come a little bit earlier to scout for street parking.
