Coastside Trail

The California Coastal Trail is a much-loved feature of Half Moon Bay - here we call it the Coastside Trail, and it's accessible from a number of spots along the coast. This is a unique and wonderful bike/pedestrian pathway along the bluffs with views to the ocean and beaches, and plenty of opportunities for bird and wildlife watching (including the occasional whale), and wildflower viewing.
