    Thanks for another great hike, Edmond. Couldn't have asked for better weather.The restaurant was also terrific

    Yeah, it was gorgeous and clear weather in Pacifica. You get that kind of weather in Pacifica not many days around the year. The shore line view along Pacific ocean was fantastic, not to mention hiking through Devil's Slide and to Pacifica pier. Thanks Edmond!

    12 miles on a beautifully clear day in the Pacifica area! The Devil's Slide Trail is the 1.3-mile stretch of highway bypassed by the tunnels, a "new old" route with great scenery. Thank you for organizing the hike, Edmond, including bus ride & coffee stop.

    It will be a great hike, but parking could be a problem.

    According to following blog: http://blog.sfgate.com/bicycle/...­

    I live in Montara and we locals are projecting that within six weeks, there will be a devastating pedestrian accident along these roads by virtue of the fact that there are less than 30 parking spaces on either side of the Trail. It is insanely stupid. On the north end (by Pacifica), there are only 15 marked parking spaces, leaving people to park illegally along the edge of the road and walk to the Trail. On the south end (by Montara/Half Moon Bay), there are 22 marked spaces and considerably more people parking illegally along the side of the road. Less than a mile south is Grey Whale Cove and a larger parking lot, so many are parking there and walking to the Trail. The problem is there is essentially NO pedestrian trail and the cars are running too close to the edge of where the pedestrians are. continued below...

      CHP was around all weekend, ticketing - especially those walking up to the Bunker which is clearly marked as Off Limits. The traffic and crowds were horrendous and while the Trail itself is lovely, the access planning was monumentally stupid. Drivers are not paying attention to the pedestrians and bikers trying to get to the trail and terrible accident is imminent, sadly.

    Hi, is anyone driving from the South Bay and be interested in carpooling?

    March 31, 2014

  • Nancy

    Does anyone know of a place close to the meeting spot where there is better parking and we can carpool in?

    March 31, 2014

    • Edmond

      There's parking south and north or Pacifica State Beach. Also at corner of Crespi Dr. and Hwy 1. $6 fee. Might be better to try and carpool before driving over Skyline.

    Giving up my spot. Haven't washed my backpack since that last hike. *cough Clara* ;P

    Actually have a volunteer event that coincides with this one, but I do look forward to the next hike if it comes up again. :)

    March 27, 2014

    • Clara

      OMG, did I just get dissed? BooHoo Tai :P In all seriousness, I'm sad you won't be on the hike. I was looking forward to giving you back your potato chips ;)

      March 27, 2014

    • Tai

      Haha, nuuuu. You're too sharp for that! =D

      We'll catch up later. I think those chips have biodegraded by now. I'll look for something else to share another time. Have a good hike!

  • Edmond

    I don't know this area well so this hike will only be a small group. Due to the great interest, I will organize a hike soon to the same location that will probably have better planning. So don't be discouraged if you can't get on this hike as you will have preference on the next one.

    March 21, 2014

  • RZ

    Guys, if I make the going list, will need a ride from SF, if any body willing to give a ride please post or send email. Thanks, be well, Rafael.
