    Amazing trail with the Pacific Ocean on one side and a gold course on the other. Yellow Bermuda buttercups were everywhere and in full bloom. Also saw blooming pink Prairie Mallows and Ice Plants, purple Tree Mallows, and white Wild Radishes. Also encountered one blooming huge white Arum Lilly. The blue sky and ocean and the multi-color hills make it a wonderful afternoon hike. A box where you can borrow a pair of binoculars and a magnifying glass added another level of excitement.

    Amazing trail. Very well maintained. Fantastic variety of geology. Several spots with some beautiful views. A great combination of open air and tree covered. Trailhead has plenty of safe parking with clean bathrooms and even a visitor center. It will definitely help to have a GPS tracker because there are a few forks in the road that could lead you wrong. Read up on the geology of this area before you come and your hike will be even better. Did I also mention, perfect combination of up and downhill.

    About 1/2 mile of beautiful gardens and plants... many as memorials of remembrances.

    Simply beautiful and easy walk from the parking lot

    We walked this trail/road on a summer morning in a thick fog that prevented us from seeing much of the ocean. Still, it was an enjoyable walk and still quite scenic.

    Great beach when not crowded. Came during a heat wave around noon and parking is a pain. Otherwise, this is a great spot with a busting taco bell cantina next door and several other food options nearby. Fairly small beach but well worth it.

    The views are breathtaking, the trails are well maintained, and once you reach the top you'll see the Pacifica Ocean on one side and the amazing views along the Pennisula. Great hike with lots of interesting sights!

    Rockaway Beach and the adjacent part of Pacifica is great as a jumping off point for a hike across to Mori point. It seems like a safe place to park. Parked here many times and never had problems. Beach area here is great for some photos.

    Found parking next to the post office. First time in a concrete/steel pier. Lots of fishermen. Nice walk to the end and back. The views were great.

    More steep trails up the coastal mountains, but some very nice views. Depending upon time of year, also wildflowers.

    I've taken my kids to frontier land park since they were little. So much to do here. There are two playgrounds plus an enormous field to play in. Or bring a BBQ and spend the whole day!
